Locating plastic pipes acoustically
As plastic pipes are not electrically conductive, they cannot be located with the classic electro-magnetical method. Another principle in pipe location is used with the acoustic method: the pipes transmit mechanical vibrations better than the surrounding soil. The vibrations are transmitted along the pipe and over the soil to the surface where they can be detected by a microphone. Just as with the acoustic location of water leaks, the microphone indicates the highest intensity thus revealing the position of the pipe. Basically AC or metallic pipes can also be located with this method.

Main pipes & plastic water mains – water
These require more energy to be set vibrating. The water column is set into motion by extraction of water from a hydrant. The water column is restricted in intervals by a shutoff device. The created pressure waves transmitted and can be located, even over long distances.

Service pipes – water
Pipes are set vibrating by a knocker just as an electrical hammer from the outside onto the pipe.
