Underground Tank and Pipe Locating Technology

  • Utility Locator Using Active and Passive Transmission
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
  • Magnetic Locator

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is not commonly requested for locating underground tanks and piping but some insurance companies require it. GPR provides the most detail when searching a location for an underground tank and piping, and is capable of providing a 3D model of your property. When tanks still have piping connected to them a Utility Locator is used. A signal is transmitted through aboveground piping to help a directional antenna follow it to the underground tank. Magnetic Locators are limited to searches for metal piping and tanks but are accurate to 15ft.
