Quickly cover large excavation areas
The parallel sweep involves walking parallel across the marked out excavation area. Once you have located a cable or pipe you then turn 90° and repeat.
Using a Signal Transmitter is more effective
Using a Signal Transmitter when doing a parallel search will help you locate and trace metallic utilities that don’t have a detectable signal by applying a signal onto the utilities.
Why should I use this method?
- Ideal for locating and tracing buried cables and pipes over a large excavation area.
- Speeds up the search process.
- Allows you to find all detectable services.
