Why do I need to locate my services?

Before you dig or excavate, you must consider what lies beneath! Buried services such as electricity, gas, water, fibre optic and communications require expert detection. Prevent major accidents, serious personal injuries and expensive bills.

The cable locators can be used to find the following:

  • electricity cables

  • gas lines

  • telephone cables

  • water pipes and drains

Independent Plumbing Inspections specialise in safely and efficiently locating & marking of all below ground services. Electricity, Gas, Telstra cables and Water pipes  using our cable locators.

We can locate and mark the position of Power cables, gas services, water services, Telstra cables as well as storm water and sewer pipes.


How does the cable locator work?

Each cable transmits a different signal, and locators pick up those signals. These signals help identify the exact location of an underground utility.

Many utility lines give off a charge or transmit a signal, and in most cases each line has a different charge or signal. However, some lines do not give off a charge or transmit a signal. In these cases, a transmitter can be used to induce a signal onto a metal line, which allows the locator to pick up the signal.
