Locate Underground Pipes and Survey Markers on Your Property

Underground Pipe

The best and easiest way to find below ground objects is with a metal detector (plumbing pipe detector). You will most likely need to locate survey markers if you are installing a new fence or shed on your property.

As a property owner there will be times when, for a variety of reasons, you will need to locate underground metal objects. For example, using a pipe locator metal detector you can easily pinpoint leaking underground pipes quickly. You might also find the need to locate underground pipes and cables during a new construction project.

Below is some information from industry expert Michael Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com which will help you identify the style of industrial metal detector that best meets your needs.

There are detection devices that are specially designed to locate buried pipes and liquid leaks in these pipes. Pool contractors and plumbing contractors alike will find liquid leak detectors a requirement for many jobs. Even in harsh conditions, these devices can pinpoint leaks, which can save you a lot of time and expense.

Industrial Metal Detector Application

To choose the best device, begin by identifying your specific industrial metal detector application:

  • Liquid Leak Detection
  • Pipe and Cable Locating
  • Boundary Marker Location
  • Valve, Box & Ferrous Location
  • Water Level Identification

Types of Industrial Detectors

Once you know which type of industrial detector you will need you can zero in on your best options.

  • Liquid Leak Detectors: You can use Liquid Leak detectors for isolating leaks in underground pipes on your property.
  • Pipe and Cable Locators: Pipe and Cable locators will help you find underground pipes, cables, and tanks buried deep below the earth. These objects might be below the frost line in many regions of the world.
  • Boundary and Marker Locating Metal Detectors: Boundary Marker locating metal detectors will assist in finding the stakes that mark the perimeter of an area. Iron and steel objects can be isolated with a valve, box & ferrous magnetometer.
  • Water Level Indicators: The final group of locating devices are water level indicators. These units will help you find leaks in any type of buried pipe under the ground.

Whichever type of detector you get, you’ll want to get metal detecting headphones like the Audiophone II. It is through sound that the pipe and leak locating devices will let you know that you have found your target. The headphones block out exterior noise and let you easily hear the deeper softer signals. Take the time to research industrial metal detectors to select the best model for your job.
