Tampa Pipe Locating & Mapping

Dedicated Plumbers in Lutz, Brandon, Carrollwood & Tampa Bay

Out of sight, out of mind is how we often treat our pipes. When they are conveniently located behind walls, it can be easy to forget about them. But what happens when you need to add an extra faucet or are thinking about remodeling? Too often, plumbers used the “best guess” method when trying to find pipes. Not only does this waste time but it might incur unnecessary damage.

At Grable Plumbing, we don’t leave anything to chance. With our state-of-the-art Tampa pipe locating and mapping technology, we find the exact location of the pipe before doing any work. You can count on our plumbers for quality work, great warranties, and, of course, our Peace of Mind Guarantee. In addition to pipe locating, we also offer video sewer and drain inspection, trenchless pipe replacement, and many other services using innovative plumbing technology.


Radiodetection is a method of locating pipes by inducing a radio signal into the subject pipe. This is done by either directly contacting the pipe with a transmitter or by an indirect induction method via a broadcast coil mounted on the surface. Once the signal is induced into the pipe, we are then able to map the pipe’s path with a hand-held receiving antenna on the surface.

This is a quick and efficient way to locate metal pipes hidden underground or in walls.

For non-metal pipes we place a small radio-transmitting probe into the pipe and follow along topside with the receiver as the probe is pulled, pushed or flushed down the pipeline.

Ground-Penetrating Radar

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) will locate pipes below the surface, under reinforced concrete, through reinforced concrete walls, and under asphalt and sidewalks. GPR works in a fast and reliable manner. It is also very safe, as it uses no radiation. It is often used to augment our other locating techniques.

A unique feature of the radar is that under some conditions, it can locate trenches where lines were buried as well as old building foundations and abandoned storage tanks.
