Sonde & Trace

< Back to News

Using our state-of-the-art sonde & trace equipment, our engineers can trace the entire route of a drainage network and provide you with the exact depth and location of any underground pipework.

Each of our CCTV units has a built-in sonde device installed, which emits a signal that is then picked up by our handheld receivers, much in the same way that a metal detector operates.

This means that we can provide you with live footage of the drain itself, as well as determining the exact location, depth and route of any drainage network.

This service is incredibly useful for those looking to extend their property, as we can identify the location of local sewerage networks that you can connect your domestic drainage into. It is also an extremely useful tool for identifying hidden manhole chambers that have been built over or buried.

Equally, if a section of your drainage network is damaged and in need of repair, we can pinpoint the exact location of the damaged pipe and tell you it’s depth. This simplifies the repair process as we can tell you exactly where to excavate, and relay how deep the pipe is underground.

Get in touch if this service may be of interest to you or your business.
