Often times the path of an underground piping system is unknown. Our cameras use a sonde – a small cartridge device attached to the camera head that emits a radio signal, which is picked up by a locating device. This is particularly helpful when trying to identify the precise place and depth of a problem with your piping system.
Pipe Mapping and Location Measurements
Rooter MD has state-of-the-art equipment that has been specifically designed to accurately evaluate and map buried pipelines. Measurements are made above surface and pipe location is indicated avoiding costly excavations. The sonde is the device that our professionals use as a watertight beacon that can be threaded onto a flexible rod and inserted into a pipeline. Using the sonde, the depth and location of even non-metallic pipe can be pinpointed. We use the sonde to find sewer laterals and many other underground plumbing configurations that may require mapping or service.
