Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, it is. You are legally obligated to dial a Before You Dig Australia (BYDA) accredited locator before commencing excavations for your project, no matter how big or small it is. If you dig without first getting a BYDA-accredited locator’s approval and damages occur, you will be responsible for the damage and all of the associated expenses.

Various different methods are used to locate underground services and underground utilities.

The most effective and most frequent technique to locate an underground asset is to transmit electromagnetic radio waves through a transmitter and receiver. The transmitter sends a signal through the pipe and cable to be collected by the receiver. The different reactions from each cable indicate what sort of utility is present. 

Other methods include Ground Penetrating Radars, which are used to locate non-conductive pipes, such as sewer and water mains. To find out more about Ground Penetrating Radar, please click here, click the button below or call 1300 738 325.

This type of cable is not detectable using electromagnetic methods, however we do have other, industry trusted methods that we use to locate optic fibre cables. 

The most frequent method for locating fibre optic cables is to use a traceable copper reel, which we can insert up the pipe/conduit that the optic fibre runs through. The copper reel is detected using electronic detection equipment which precisely locates it just like any other underground service.

In most cases, electronic locations are extremely accurate. However, they are still only classified as “Class B” locations in the Classification of Subsurface Utility ‘AS 5488’ guidelines. Electronic sites must be safely potholed via hand excavation or with a vacuum excavation truck to be regarded as a “Class A” location in accordance with the Classification of Subsurface Utility “AS 5488” standards.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is an advanced technique for locating underground services that involves pulsing electromagnetic radio waves into the ground. The energy waves reflect off subsurface objects such as underground services to help identify their location.

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a valuable tool for locating underground facilities like power lines and pipes. By calculating the time it takes for signals to reflect off a surface, GPR can detect the presence of a buried object without direct contact with the target itself, making it an effective method for subsurface detection.

It is important to understand that locating underground services and utilities is crucial before any excavation work begins on site. This is because it helps to protect underground assets from accidental strikes and damage during excavation, which is essential for public safety.
