Eastern Area Locating stays up-to-date with the latest methods of utility line locating services. We are dedicated to keeping our client’s locating projects affordable and accurate. That’s why we use the most state-of-the-art accurate equipment to help you locate any underground utilities. Check out some of our most common line locating methods that we use on a day-to-day basis.
Electromagnetic Utility Locating – This method is primarily used by professional locators to find private utilities such as gas, electric, telephone, cable, etc. It uses electromagnetic radio waves to bounce off the lines underground. Unfortunately, this method cannot detect unmarked plastic, non-ductile pipes, concrete, terracotta, or asbestos.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) – GPR uses high frequency radio waves to locate buried pipes, tanks, cables, and other buried objects the Electromagnetic Utility Locator couldn’t detect.
Underground Electric Fault Locator – This method is mainly used to locate electrical lines. If your electrical panel is having constant fuse breaks, we can determine where the issue lies and help you get it fixed, quickly.
Metal Detection – Our metal detection method is mainly used to locate any wells on your property, as well as your property pin, with exceptional accuracy.
