Service Locating

The original and still one of the best methods used to locate underground utilities. The exact name of this technique is Electromagnetic Field Locating (EMF Locating) but can go by such names as cable locating, piple locating, utility detection to name a few.

Concrete Scanning

Concrete Scanning is a non-destructive method of finding the location of steel reinforcing bars, post-tension cables, power cables, water pipes and voids within a concrete slab.

Ground Penetrating Radar

With more plastic (non-conductive) pipe going in the ground every day, Geelong Cable Locations invested in a high tech locating tool called Ground Penetrating Radar, to find service cables & pipes that wouldn’t otherwise be picked up by a digital locator.

Acoustic Locating

Geelong Cable Locations’ experienced technicians can detect domestic poly water pipes and non-conductive water mains by using a water leak detector and pulse generator specially designed for locating underground water pipes.

As well as service locating, we provide non destructive digging services, surveying/GPS/Drafting, & full scale project management services, in which we will look after the whole damage prevention process to protect the underground assets you have on site.

What Customers Say About Us

I needed a sewer line located then replaced. I had no idea what to do, but figured I needed a cable/sewer line locating company to help start the process. I called, left my details and Ben very promptly called me back. What a lovely friendly guy, and he very quickly let me know that of course they could come out and find the sewer line etc but really I needed a plumber to do the whole job – saving me time and money. I have not used the location services of this company, but can absolutely guarantee if I or anyone I know needs such location services I’ll be giving Geelong Cable Locations a call! Fantastic ‘old-fashioned’ quality customer service with a smile, even when they’re bypassing on the job because they know me the customer will save a lot of money and time if they’re honest with me and let me know I’ll be better off all round hiring the right professional for the whole job. To me that indicates true professionalism and quality customer service – caring more about a potential customer than their own profit margin – you don’t see that kind of integrity much these days. Thanks Ben!


We had some shade sails installed at our place. Unfortunately the shade sail installers didn’t do their homework and cut through our NBN cable and damaged our mains power wire. In February this year after a big storm our damaged mains power wire cut out. We hired Geelong Cable Locations to trace the cable and locate the damaged cable.

From the time I made contact with Ray on the website asking if they could help us they were nothing but FANTASTIC to deal with. They were out within 2 hours of our request and located the mains power wire and the damage. I would like to thank Shaun and Ben from Geelong Cable Locations for their sensational service that they provided.

If you are unsure of where your services are underground I definitely recommend giving Geelong Cable Locations a call just for peace of mind. It cost the shade sail company $4,500.00 to rectify their damage to my services all because they didn’t do their homework and employed Geelong Cable Locations. Thank you very much again for your service. I have also passed this companies details on to several of my earth moving contacts as well. I will definitely keep you in mind for any future works that I may come across. Don’t just dig and hope. Do your homework. It could cost lives.

Thanks heaps.
