Electromagnetic techniques are unable to detect non-metallic buried services such as plastic water and gas pipes, fibre-optics and drainage pipes that we cannot introduce a sonde into. To overcome this potentially hazardous situation, we combine the use of Electromagnetic techniques with Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR).
GPR is able to detect non-metallic as well as metallic pipes. It will also give an indication of the location and depth of buried services but will not identify them.
