Underground locating services
Digital (EMF/ Service) locating is the original and still one of the fastest ways to go about locating an underground utility. There are several different ways the technology works, but the most common use of EMF locating and the one we use, day in and day out, is known as induction locating, in which we induce a signal onto the cable or pipe that you are trying to find through the use of the transmitter and then locate that same signal that we have just produced with a receiver.

What do you do when you know there’s an underground service in the area you are working, but you haven’t been able to find it using the standard digital locator?
Hydro Excavation/ Vacuum Excavation/ Non Destructive Digging
Non Destructive Digging is a safe form of digging which offers the lowest chance of cables, pipes, tree roots from being damaged when you need to dig in their vicinity, compared to the damage that could be caused by the teeth of an excavator or even just a crowbar
Geelong Cable Locations’ experienced technicians can detect domestic poly water pipes and non-conductive water mains by using acoustic locating techniques.
Concrete Scanning is a non-destructive method of finding the location of steel reinforcing bars, post-tension cables and power cables within the concrete.
