Once a drainage problem has been located on a CCTV survey, the exact location of the defective or collapsed drain can be identified using special sonar tracing equipment and will locate the line, depth and direction of the drain.
The use of sonar tracing essentially eliminates the possible guesswork as the results will identify the depth of the drainage problem, exactly where the pipe work is and in which direction it is flowing. The results will then help in deciding on the most suitable method of repairing the fault and if needs be the accurate location to excavate to carry out a repair.
Sonar tracing is undertaken by Jet Aire's team of highly skilled operatives and we are fully equipped with the latest sonar tracing equipment to locate drains/sewers, blockages and damaged drains without the need to dig. In addition our engineers can also detect defective or collapsed drains if the customer thinks they may have a problem.
If excavation is needed, sonar tracing will identify the precise location of the drainage problem which will help in excavating and repairing the fault. . In addition sonar tracing can also help the locating of buried manholes or traps.
