Safe Dig and our highly skilled operators use the most recent up to date Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology available.
GPR is the only non-intrusive method that can locate non-metallic or non-conductive underground utilities such as plastic water and gas lines, concrete, terracotta, asphalt, composite pipes and even direct-buried fiber optics. GPR is, in principle, similar to sonar equipment found in boats. The receiver picks up the "back scattered" signal, records it and displays the image live on a computer screen. Readings returned on screen indicate the depth and the position of the pipe.
When combined with Vacuum excavation, GPR provides unparalleled levels of precision in pin-pointing the location of underground utilities or anomalies.
Safe dig's Vacuum Excavation service is delivered incredibly quickly, efficiently and with much less disruption than other less accurate methods of excavation. Crucially, along with minimal intrusion and disruption come significantly lower costs in terms of labour, site/road closures and traffic management. To use our services your project will be finished faster, with less cost to you and with far less risk of damage to delicate services.
