How can non metallic underground utilities be found?
What is the FlexiTrace system?
FlexiTrace is an underground utility detection system that uses a flexible rod with conducting wires throughout and a transmitting sonde at the end. The sonde works as a beacon that puts out signals that can be traced with a receiver. Surface access to the pipe or duct is required where the FlexiTrace can be inserted and pushed or pulled through. Once the FlexiTrace is inserted, signals can be transmitted and accurately tracked to help locate, trace the pipe, determine depth, pinpoint defects, and locate any blockages.
Where can FlexiTrace be used?
The underground utility locating system can be used for commercial and residential projects. FlexiTrace puts out its own frequency which a receiver tracks, making it possible to trace pipes, sewer lines, drains, and empty conduits that are non metallic and non conductive. At ACS Underground Solutions, we can help track your non metallic underground pipes and utilities in CT, NY, NJ. MA, and RI. Click to schedule a FlexiTrace scan.
Is FlexiTrace accurate for non metallic pipes and drains?
Yes, FlexiTrace can accurately locate and trace underground pipes that are non metallic. The FlexiTrace has a flexible rod that can bend easily and can fit into tight spots; the sonde then emits its own frequency that can be tracked.
Fun Fact – We used the FlexiTrace for the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge in New York which connects the boroughs of Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx via Randall’s and Ward’s Islands. We were contracted to conduct an underground utility location scan which was critical to preventing issues during construction and for avoiding traffic interruptions. The FlexiTrace helped with the non metallic utilities underground. Click to learn more.
