Pipe Location and Sonar Tracing

Do you need an underground pipe locating or drain mapping carried out for your domestic or commercial property? Drawings and plans of your drainage system are often out of date or inaccurate and need updating if you are carrying out building work or extending your property. You may have had the results of a CCTV drain survey highlighting defects which need to be repaired yet the exact location of the damage is not known.

It is often impractical and costly to excavate to find the location of a drain or pinpoint damage to a pipe. Drainflow Solutions offer sonar tracing for pipe location and drain mapping. Using sonar tracing we can locate collapsed pipes, concealed manhole covers and see where pipes are to within a few centimetres of their exact location using specialist equipment.

Our specialist sonar tracing equipment allows us to see what is happening underground. We pass a transmitter through the drainage system which navigates bends in the pipework and emits electrical pulses to a receiver above ground. This allows us to ‘pin point’ the location of drainage pipes and faults precisely. We can also use sonar tracing to establish the exact depth of pipes and manholes. So, should the situation arise where excavation is required to repair a drain or sewer, it can be done efficiently with minimum disruption.

Drainflow Solutions also use sonar tracing to map drainage systems for businesses and property owners who are having work carried out at their premises. The sonar tracing establishes where the drains are located and the depth of the pipes prior to building work commencing. This ensures work can be carried out preserving the integrity of the current drains and accurately linking up the new system with the old system if this is required.
