At Priority Plumbing our expertise has developed from our extensive history of locating and tracing lines, and detecting and locating pipework in all situations.  We have the knowledge, experience and equipment to locate, trace and detect all water service pipework, metallic pipes, and sewer and stormwater pipes. 

 

Copper and Metallic Pipe location

Our Metallic Pipe location equipment is a very effective and accurate way of tracing any Copper/Steel/Metallic pipes. This pipe location equipment is highly sensitive and can be adjusted to suit a numbers of situations. The pipe location equipment can trace long distances of metallic pipes and is accurate to within centimetres. This equipment can also give the depth of the pipework that is being investigated.

 

PVC Pressure/ Plastic and Poly water service pipe location

PVC Pressure/ Plastic and Poly pipe location identification is undertaken using our pulse wave generation equipment in conjunction with a ground microphone. This is done by putting a pulse through the pipework and tracing the pulse through the ground with the highly sensitive ground microphone.

 

Location of Sewer and Stormwater pipework

We have a number of methods used to locate Sewer and Stormwater pipes. We have specialised sonde location equipment wherein we send a sonde/probe on a feed reel into the pipework. This is then tracked to provide an accurate location underground of where the sonde in the pipework is located. From this, we can give distance and depth measurements prior to excavation, ensuring that our clients have as much information as possible to undertake the work.

Our CCTV cameras have inbuilt sondes in the camera heads. This is particularly valuable when investigating a Sewer/Stormwater drain. With CCTV cameras the issue in the drain can be seen visually, the location of the issue can be easily found, and the minimum damage made to the area to make a repair.

This is particularly useful for broken and/ or cracked drains as the camera can see the extent of the damage in addition to the exact point of damage.

Locating hot water pipe using the thermal imaging camera

The images below were provided from a thermal imaging camera. They clearly demonstrate the hot water pipework in the wall of the bathroom. By using a thermal imaging camera to locate the pipework, cut ins and connections can be made with a minimum of damage to the existing walls. This is particularly important when needing to make penetrations in walls where pipework may be installed.
