Sewer Pipe Location Services Sydney

Locating underground drains and pipes in Sydney used to be a frustrating and time-consuming process requiring a lot of guess work and in many cases unnecessary excavation. Today we use electronic locators to find sewer pipes and stormwater drains. In addition to locating the exact position of the drain we can also provide direction and depth information. With this detailed information we can provide accurate location information for main lines, branch lines, junctions, sewer connection points, cleanouts, inspection openings and shafts, concealed stormwater pits, boundary shafts, pipe faults and tree root intrusion location just to name a few.

Accurate Drain Location

Our CCTV drain cameras operate a small transmitter installed inside the camera head assembly which transmits a signal back to ground level where we can accurately determine using an electronic locator the location, depth, and direction of the pipework we are visually inspecting. With this visual and location information, we can not only show you the problem but also give you the information to answer all your questions and give us the information to accurately determine the best and most cost-effective solutions. Without a doubt, electronic locators are one of the best costs and labour-saving devises ever invented.

When To Locate Drains

Drain location work is not considered an essential part of blocked drain clearing unless we need to find hidden or buried access points to gain entry into the sewer line or for some other essential reason. For waste blockages or regular drain servicing to remove tree root regrowth, location work is normally not required. For a tree root blockage location work is beneficial if the homeowner wants to carry out any drainage repairs or renewals due to damaged pipes when cleanouts need to be found or installed or sometimes the homeowner just wants to know the location of the issue for curiosity's sake. For whatever reason it is we can supply accurate location, depth, and direction information if requested.
