Locating Pipes and Cables

What Kinds Of Services Can You Expect From Locating Companies?

There are dozens of locating companies all over Sydney, Wollongong, and in the other surrounding areas and towns, but not everyone knows what kind of work they do; which is unfortunate because they actually provide services that many people would definitely find useful. If you want to know more about this industry and how they can help you, then the following examples might help you out.

Locating leaking and/or frozen pipes

As you may be fully aware of, there are hundreds of meters of pipeline going through your house, and most of them are hidden beneath the floors or sealed within the walls so that the house looks neater. But this aesthetic approach to plumbing comes at a price; when leaks occur within the hidden portion of the pipeline, you need to break open large portions of the walls or the floors just so you can fix the damage.

If you want to minimize the amount of damage done to your home, you should hire locating companies. They use special equipment that allows them to locate the portion of piping that is leaking, with this you do not have to break apart your entire wall, just that part where the leak is located. This same technique can also be used to find frozen pipes so that you can remedy it before the ice causes it to burst and flood your home.

Utility mapping

Say that you are planning on installing a swimming pool in your backyard, would you immediately set the heavy machinery to work without first finding out what lies underfoot? If you do choose to start the excavation, there is a huge chance that your equipment will hit and damage one of the many utility lines that are buried underneath your property. What if you hit the water main to your house? If you do not shut off the main valve, then instead of a pool you will have a huge mud pit in the center of your yard.

Locating companies provide utility mapping services, this is where they use powerful ground penetrating radar to find out where the utility lines are located and then carefully mark them out on the surface of the ground. With these markings in place, you now know which parts of your yard you should avoid digging into. Utility mapping is also useful when building a new house because this will easily let the builders find where they can gain access to the utility lines so that they can connect them to the house.

These are only some of the applications of locating companies, there are actually a lot more things that they can contribute, and you will be surprised at just how many you can actually make use of.
