RIDGID Utility and Pipe Locators
When it comes to locating utility lines, reliability is key. Without a product you can trust, you’re playing with fire. That’s why we work with RIDGID and Schonstedt — two manufacturers that build every piece of equipment with quality and reliability at the forefront.
From RIDGID, we have a variety of utility locating equipment available that use electromagnetic frequencies to find any obstructions waiting beneath the soil. They are lightweight but powerful, with specialized options to help you find specific materials so you can avoid mismarking or identifying the wrong utility line.
All SeekTech and Navitrack locators include a receiver component and can accomplish active and passive searches. We also carry RIDGID SeekTech line transmitters, with multiple frequencies for direct connection and induction. Each product is built tough, so you can expect rugged reliability every time.
A utility and pipe locator from RIDGID works for utilities made of metal, like electric, phone, water and gas pipelines, along with tracer wire. It won’t work for plastic or other non-metal utilities unless a tracer wire or other metallic linear item is included.
Schonstedt Magnetic Detectors
We also have several products from Schonstedt that offer magnetic detection. These detectors are best for finding single points, like a property corner pin. They work with ferrous objects like iron and steel and ignore other metals, making them inappropriate for pipe and cable detection.
Some of the items they can detect include:
- Survey pins, markers and nails.
- Water and gas valves.
- Manhole covers.
- Underground storage tanks.
- Unexploded ordnance.
- Ductile iron water pipes.
