Water and Gas customers need to find, repair and replace ageing buried assets as part of national general improvements and maintenance to reduce industry leakage statistics.
The challenges they face are:
- Rough terrain
- Inaccessible cast iron pipes (buried/submerged/deep)
- Reducing time waste through false digs
- Assets deeper than other utilities
- Harsh environments

GA-92XTd, the extendable, easy-to-use and portable magnetic locator. The GA-92XTd retracts to fit in its holster (included), and extends for one-handed operation and fingertip control.it is the most compact in the range.
RD312 features simple 2-button operation, making it an easy-to-use metal locator for tracing shallow ferrous objects such as manhole covers, meter boxes and valves when they are covered by snow, grass, gravel or tarmac. The RD312 is most effective when the objects are likely to be less than 1 metre below the surface.
