Plastic Pipe Locator

The transonde locates all clean water pipes including PVC, Plastic, AC without tracer wires by creating water pulses on the pipes.

The Radiodetection transondes locate PVC, plastic pipe locator valve that connects to the water supply pipes and creates 5 psi pulses higher than the pipe pressure. Then locate PVC pipe by listening with the RD547, Stethophon 04, A50, T10, Aquaphon A100 or A200, P50, P100. The P50 and P100 are designed specifically for listening to the pulses from the transonde.

Green: 2″ pipes, Red: > 6″ pipes

Radiodetection Electronic Transonde

Electronically controlled water valve opens and closes creating water pulses in the pipe causing noise in the pipe. Water Pulse Generator sends water pulses along the pipe which then can be located using the Stethophon, T10, A50, A150 or A200 leak detectors.

  • Locates all pipe materials with clean water
  • Locate non-metallic pipes up to 6.5 feet deep
  • Find plastic pipe up to 2000 feet long
  • Pipes can remain in service
  • 30 psi to 115 psi pressure range
  • Value priced

Stopper PVC Pipe Locator

The “Sewerin Stopper” connects to hydrants to located plastic, PVC and non-metallic water pipes. In good conditions the thumper locates plastic pipes over 1000 feet in each direction. Deeper pipes and softer soils reduce the maximum distance. Both the frequency and intensity of the pressure pulse are controllable.

The Combiphon Generator powers and controls both the Knocker and Stopper PVC pipe locators.

Knocker Plastic Pipe Locator

The Knocker connects to the outside of plastic PVC (non-metallic) pipes and taps on the plastic pipe, sending sound pulses down the pipes. The Knocker plastic pipe locator controls both the frequency and intensity of sound pulses. Then you find the PVC pipe location with the Stethophon 04, T10, A50 or A200, or M300D or other acoustic leak detector. This works on all common pipe materials and doesn’t require a connect the water flow. For longer distances, the Sewerin Stopper generated sounds travel much farther. Connecting is quick and easy.

Jameson Plastic Pipe Locator

Locate plastic water pipes up to 300 feet and up to 100 psi by inserting the locator traceable rodder using a sealed stuffing box into plastic water pipes for accurate location and depth measurements. The stuffing box connects to the yoke which holds the meter using an adapter.

Available in 100′, 150′, 200′, 250′, 300′ kits with 3/16″ diameter pushrods.

Jameson Plastic Water Main Locator and Pipe Inspection Insertion Tool

Locate non-metal water pipes and plastic water mains up to 1200 feet in each direction without a tracer wire. Seals with live water pipes up to 100 psi. Accurately locate the position and depth of plastic (C-900) and steel pipes with Radiodetection RD7100 Underground Locators, RD8100 Pipe Locator, RD5100S, RD5100H2O or RD5100H20+. It’s like inserting a tracer wire into an existing pipe in both directions.

Insert pipe inspection cameras with up to 1 3/8″ diameter camera heads into live water mains and direct the camera head in either direection

SENSIT Ulta-Trac APL Plastic Pipe Locator

The Ultratrac APL transmits 500 hz or 900hz sound pulses of into the ground and analyses the reflections showing differences in the density of the soil and objects underneath. Because the APL (Acoustic Pipe Locator) sends sound pulses instead of radio waves like GPR, the Ultra-Trac works in many soil types including high conductivity clay soils. High conductivity soils absorb alot of signal from GPR limiting the depth of GPR scans.

  • No connection to pipe needed
  • Works in high conductivity soils like clay that limit ground penetrating radar
  • A color map profile view shows subsurface objects
  • Easy guided step by step operation
  • Finds plastic pipe water services, sewer laterals, septic tanks, gas pipes, all pipe types and materials
  • 25 hour rechargeable battery
  • Sends and receives sound waves to determine pipe locations
  • Pipe location depths:
    • 1/2″ pipes at 12″ to 30″
    • 2″ pipes at 12″ to 48″
    • 4″ pipes at 12″ to 96″

Subsurface AML Pro and AML+ Plastic Pipe Locator

Finds plastic pipes and pther buried objects with staight edges by sensing the difference in density using high frequency radio waves.

  • No connection to the pipe needed
  • Rechargeable Li-ion battery
  • Backlit display
  • GPS
  • Digital leveling,
  • Digital targeting
  • 3 year warranty
