Ground Penetrating Radar
Ground penetrating radar or GPR is an essential part of our Locator Guys tool kit. This high-end non-invasive and cost-effective piece of equipment allows us to quickly and accurately identify the presence and depth of services whether they be constructed of modern PE or PVC materials or older clay, concrete or metallic construction.
Not only can it help in the location of pipe and cable infrastructure it can also be used to detect;
- Buried manhole covers
- Buried valves
- Buried septic tanks
- Old foundations
- Underground Storage tanks
- Voids and cavities
GPR isn’t without its limitations, GPR waves are absorbed in certain ground conditions, particularly clay or saline (salty) environments. This is why it’s just one of the techniques used by our utility location experts to map out your site.
