Smoke Testing

Ground Penetrating Radar

Online Pipe & Cable Locating technicians are skilled in the use of Ground Penetrating Radar technology to locate underground utilities and provide a graphic image of the subsurface, underground or most hidden areas.

Water Jetting

Online Pipe & Cable Locating technicians use high velocity Water Jetting equipment ranging in size from 40mmØ to 1.2mØ to clean and clear drains and pipes. To remove blockages caused by the build-up of grease, we use a hot water unit for the water jetting process.

Non Destructive Digging

Online Pipe & Cable Locating technicians are trained in the use of Non-Destructive Digging and the use high pressure water to blast away the ground, sand, clay, dirt and other materials to expose or pot hole around pipes, cables, and underground utilities without incurring damage to the asset. A continual vacuum suction process then clears and removes the material around the service, which is then removed from site. This is a simple and quick way to expose underground assets and clean the site of unwanted materials with minimal risk.

Vacuum Loading

Online Pipe & Cable Locating’s Vacuum Loading service includes emptying and cleaning of all types of traps, holes and pits. Our mobile tanks have a storage capacity of more than 5,000 litres of sludge, storm water, sewer or other waste (liquid or dry).

Pipe Freezing

Online Pipe & Cable Locating has a team of technicians trained in Pipe Freezing, a process that allows the isolation of a section of the pipe by freezing the content of the pipe to form an ice plug. The ice plug adheres to the pipe walls avoiding the eliminating the flow of water and enabling pipe repairs and maintenance to be performed.

Drains Cleared

With the use of high pressure water jets, Online Pipe & Cable Locating technicians can clear drains of most blockages. We have truck-mounted high pressure water jets as well as portable water jets units, and cold and hot water units on hand to clear any blockage.
