How it works?

Acoustic pipe locator transmits a mechanical pulse along a water service. A ground microphone listening device is attached to the equipment to track the water service path. This works brilliantly especially for non-metallic water services. It can be used in soil, grass, concrete or asphalt grounds. The listening device makes it easy to interpret the data, and hence gives a much-needed relief to clients.
