The Radiodetection Transonde locates all clean water pipes including PVC, Plastic, AC without tracer wires.
The Radiodetection transondes locate PVC, plastic pipe locator valve that connects to the water supply pipes and creates 5 psi pulses higher than the pipe pressure. Then locate PVC pipe by listening with the RD547, Stethophon 04, A50, T10, Aquaphon A100 or A200, RD500 receiver or other acoustic leak detector for the loudest position.
Green: < 2" pipes, Yellow: > 2" pipes, Red: > 6" pipes
RD500 Plastic Pipe Locator brochure
Electronically controlled water valve opens and closes creating water pulses in the pipe causing noise in the pipe. Water Pulse Generator sends water pulses along the pipe which then can be located using the Stethophon, T10, A50, Aquaphon or A200 leak detectors.
The "Sewerin Stopper" connects to hydrants to located plastic, PVC and non-metallic water pipes. In good conditions the thumper locates plastic pipes over 1000 feet in each direction. Deeper pipes and softer soils reduce the maximum distance. Both the frequency and intensity of the pressure pulse are controllable.

The Combiphon Generator powers and controls both the Knocker and Stopper PVC pipe locators.

The Knocker connects to the outside of PVC plastic(non-metallic) pipes and taps on the plastic pipe, sending sound pulses down the pipes. The Knocker plastic pipe locator controls both the frequency and intensity of sound pulses, then you find the PVC pipe location with the Stethophon 04,; Aquaphon, or RD500 receiver or other acoustic leak detector.
The Knocker works for all pipes in general. A water pressure and flow is not needed. Connecting is quick and easy.
Plastic pipe locator: Sewerin Combiphon video
Locate plastic water pipes up to 300 feet and up to 100 psi by inserting the locator traceable rodder using a sealed stuffing box into plastic water pipes for accurate location and depth measurements. The stuffing box connects to the yoke which holds the meter using an adapter.
Available in 100', 150', 200', 250', 300' kits with 3/16" diameter pushrods.
Locate non-metal water pipes and plastic water mains up to 1200 feet in each direction without a tracer wire. Seals with live water pipes up to 100 psi. Accurately locate the position and depth of plastic (C-900) and steel pipes with Radiodetection RD7100 Underground Locators, RD5000 Pipe Locator or other locators. It's like inserting a tracer wire into an existing pipe in both directions.
Insert pipe inspection cameras with up to 1 3/8" diameter camera heads into live water mains and direct the camera head in either dire
The Ultratrac APL transmits sound pulses of 500 hz or 900hz into the ground and analyses the reflections showing differences in the density of the soil and objects underneath. Because the APL (Acoustic Pipe Locator) sends sound pulses instead of radio waves like GPR, the Ultra-Trac works in many soil types including high conductivity clay soils. High conductivity soils (clay and / or moisture) absorb alot of signals from GPR frequencies limiting the depth of GPR scans.
