Water Line Locator Service

Whether you’re a homeowner who suspects a waterline leak, a rancher on the hunt for an underground well, or a developer looking for nearby water lines — give us a call to get started on your waterline-related issue.

While you might think of a plumber first when it comes to water line detection, only Wood Inspection Services uses ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology. As a private utility locator, we offer comprehensive service and deploy GPR to locate old water lines, buried obstructions, water wells and underground aquifers.

We typically start with electromagnetic locating and line tracing tools to get a broad view of active water lines. GPR equipment provides a comprehensive survey that our highly trained technicians then interpret.

Vacant Landowners and Ranchers

If you just purchased a rural property and need help finding underground aquifers and water well locations, hire Wood Inspection Services. With our GPR equipment we can map underground by bouncing radar off buried objects and differences in the earth.

Maybe your 5-acre lot came with zero lines and you prefer to be on the grid. Wood Inspection can map out utility lines for connections in 2D and 3D.

Note that whether your land includes or excludes mineral rights, subsurface water is always included in the purchase of vacant land in Texas.

It’s never a good day when you find a random puddle of water collecting in your yard.

Cities in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area vary in regulations, but in general most are only responsible for water lines at the street or sidewalk. That private water line location, buried 5 or 6 feet deep from the front of your home to the street, likely never crosses your mind at all — until there’s a leak.

Fixing such leaks can be costly. To avoid digging up your entire yard, our experts would locate your main water line location within a foot of the pipe by using GPR — a completely non-destructive way to find buried utilities.

Traditional utility locaters aren’t capable of picking up any non-conductive materials that could make up water lines, including PVC.

Project managers call on us to inspect worksites before starting on road construction or building a new government building.

Locating old or active water lines can help avoid water main breaks, damage to construction equipment, costly cleanup, and repair.

Home builders and real estate developers hire Wood Inspection Services to discover utility line connections and create maps. Lower construction costs for a new residential or commercial property with ground penetrating radar.

  • Home Builders: GPR can be used to determine connections to utilities and active and old buried lines for home builders.
  • Real estate land consultants: GPR can be deployed for valuation of vacant land (if active utilities are found near or within property boundaries, the property value increases.)
  • Commercial: GPR can come in handy for general contractors, land surveyors, subsurface utility engineering firms and water well monitoring and drilling companies to keep them informed of any obstructions before excavation is started.
