    Default Device for locating underground pvc pipe & electrical

    Hi folks, I live on a farm & we have several buildings - barn - shelters,etc. & we have water lines & electrical scattered about. I'm in the process of some more projects as adding more shelters plus concrete. Are there any devices that would be a good fit for a private land owner to locate & read depth for electrical & water lines? Thanks for any input. DRJ

    If you want to do it yourself then look up a company called "Prototek" in Paulsbo Washington, they can sell you a locator they make that is really good at a moderate price then buy a mini sonde to go inside 1" pvc lines. You start with those and if you need a little bit more help they can sell you a transmitter as well so you can pick your own freqs for your situation. The reason I said this company was price and support for the questions you have as you begin. Another way might be to spend $500 on ebay for a radiodetection 4000 locator then just buy the sonde from prototek but you won't have any support. There you go!
