Plastic Water Pipe Locator

Plastic Water Pipe Locator


Locate plastic water lines. The Radiodetection Electronic transonde coupled with the FCS DXMic uses acoustic to locate distances over 500ft and can also be used to locate leaks.

Locate underground plastic water pipes easily by using sound.  This electronic transonde is used to vibrate the water as it passes through it sending a minute sound wave back along the pipe. This sound wave is then detected using the DXMic receiver giving a location of the water pipe.


The DXmic also doubles as a top leak detector.  It has the latest generation ground microphone and features from FCS.
