For the ANSWER to all your Drainage and Pipe Problems
Drain Plotting and Tracing
We also offer a drain tracing and plotting service where this might be required by individuals or organisations - possibly as part of a construction or proposed construction projects.
Here a piece of equipment called a sonde is used which emits an electrical pulse is attached to a camera. A jetter or rods is passed through the pipe and the signal is detected above the ground, the route of the drain or a specific point on a drainage system is accurately plotted. Sonar sonde tracing is useful for a number of purposes - to identify buried chamber, route, depth and direction of drain runs and to identify specific faults providing for more accurate estimates on the extent of damage and work required.
