If you have a leak either in a water supply pipe or a underground pipe we can use our location equipment to find the pipe. This is really useful as it saves you digging up your backyard following the path of the pipe. Instead, you can locate the position of the pipe while the surface of the ground is still intact. Saves you time and lots of digging!

Or maybe you don’t have a leak, but just need to know where the pipes are because you intend to build something over top of it. Before you destroy your pipes with a bobcat, use our pipe location services to investigate their whereabouts and save yourself an emergency callout.
