Pipe Vision Australia uses the latest equipment to allow us to locate sewer and storm pipes accurately and easily. There are a number of reasons we need to know exact pipe locations. Whether it is to be able to dig around them confidently or to know exactly where to access a problem in the pipe. A great way to locate hidden things is to cause them, or something near them, to transmit a radio signal. Then all you need is the right equipment that is able to to measure the signal’s strength and direction, and then accurately locate the source of the signal.

The most common equipment used to accurately report underground pipe locations is a Sonde.

Sonde or transmitter, locating – A small radiating unit (a transmitter) is sent down a pipe attached to our high tech CCTV pipe inspection camera and the precise pipe location is detected by the receiver, above ground. This method is mostly used to locate buried tanks and specific trouble spots in a pipe. Mapping a line can be accomplished by moving the transmitter a few feet at a time and marking the locations on the ground.

So, simply put, Pipe Vision Australia CCTV pipeline inspection systems are able to provide accurate pipe locations without digging. Pipe Vision Australia has the latest CCTV equipment on hand, with accurate  built in sonde transmitters, which allows our team to track the camera on the surface as it moves through the pipe, allowing us to record exact pipe locations.

The Sonde can assist with time and budget, and tracing a pipeline or locating and exposing buried nodes or pipe defects can be done accurately and without digging – with the assistance of the built in sonde.



Pipe Vision Australia conducts surveys of stormwater and sewer using the latest, state of the art, Ipek CCTV pipeline camera systems which are capable of surveying stormwater and sewer pipes of all sizes. With full pan and tilt features, and amazingly clear zoom capabilities on our high tech pipe inspection cameras, your underground pipework can no longer remain hidden!
