Why utility locating is important.

You are excited to install the pool of your dreams in your backyard finally, but there are some tasks you needs to complete first.  One important service you need to be fulfilled is locating any utilities underground such as electric and gas lines.  For public utilities, state agencies will locate them, but you are responsible for locating any private utilities.  The professional contractors at Concrete Visions can locate your private utilities easily with ground penetrating radar and frequency locating technology.  

Overview of GPR and Frequency Locating

Ground penetrating radar, GPR, is used to find underground utilities by using a pulsating radar to show 3-D images of pipes and water mains.  GPR is the most accurate and reliable utility locating service in the industry and is used all over the world.  Frequency locators are used for specific purposes such as finding phone lines that emit energy.  This service is a quick and efficient way to find utilities.

Safety First

Compared to traditional locating methods, GPR is a non-destructive method for identifying utilities and will not destroy any surrounding structures such as electrical systems.  It inspects a site quickly and safely preserving all the surrounding structures of the area.    

Importance of Information

GPR can detect a variety of materials from metal to plastic and knows their exact location and depth allowing for quick accuracy.  GPR is the perfect solution finding any unknown utilities and gaining all pertinent information about them.  GPR gains all of the information of any utility making future projects go smoothly.
