RD550 Pulse Wave Generator can be used with a ground microphone to locate and trace underground plastic water pipes.
The RD550 pulse wave generator is the ideal accessory for the RD547 or RD545 enabling the water-leak specialist to accurately trace underground water pipes at depths of up to 2 meters, (6.5 feet) and for distances of up to 600 meters, (650 yards).
Accurately locating a water pipe is often the first step in finding a water leak. Plastic pipes can be particularly difficult to trace. Attached to a water pipeline the valve in the RD550 opens and closes creating pressure waves. The resulting noise, as the pressure waves travel along the pipe, can be used to trace the pipe using a ground microphone, (geophone). This method is suitable for metallic and non-metallic pipes.
