    What Is Sonde Mapping?

    Drain tracing is a specialist process that requires the right knowledge in order to be used effectively. Sonde mapping, drain tracing, and pipe location is used for tracing your underground pipework and locating the entirety of your drainage system.

    Drain tracing relies on sending out signals from a sonde transmitter which is integrated into our CCTV camera heads where the signal is sent out from. Our drainage consultants will then be able to receive the signal through the handheld receiver above ground. With this information, our engineers will be able to pinpoint the depth and the location of the pipework.

    Save Money and Time with Sonde Tracing

    Sonde drain tracing is very useful and cost-effective for people wishing to build an extension. If a public sewer is located within three metres or a public lateral drain is within one metre of your building project, you will need to seek approval from the local authority before you carry out any work. This is also known as a build-over agreement. Sometimes, it is difficult to work out exactly where the drainage system is and in which direction they are flowing.

    Although your water authority may be able to provide you with the drainage plans, they may not be up-to-date or accurate. To ensure that you get the latest information that is reliable and accurate, you will need to carry out sonde tracing. We gather this information with a sonde tracer which is put into the pipework by our mapping survey engineers who will then feed this along the pipework.

    Our professional sonde mapping survey engineers will then mark out on the ground where the drain lines are running. We will then be able to determine the depth and direction of the foul wastewater and surface water, as well as the culvert pipework. From this information, we can produce in-depth and comprehensive reports that outline where all of your underground assets are located.

    The Benefits of Sonde Drain Tracing

    If you’re looking to make changes to your home, architects and builders will often require drainage plans in order to understand where the pipes are beneath the property in order to avoid causing damage to the drains.

    There are instances where the drainage systems of the Water Authority (LWA) can be found running through your property. In these situations, using sonar technology is essential for avoiding damage to the LWA drainage systems. Due to its nature, sonar drain tracing is also unintrusive and can be carried out quickly and efficiently.

    At Drain 247, we have decades of experience within the mapping sector and we know that having a company that you can always rely on for sonde tracing and mapping services is important.
