Utility & Line Locating

Hukill's Leak and Utility Locating Company can locate buried electric lines, communication lines, water lines, steel pipes and steel conduits that need to be located.

For metal pipes and cables we use electromagnetic line locating equipment. A transmitter is set up either with a direct (conductive) connection to a utility, or inductively, where the signal waves are transmitted over or around a utility. These are very effective methods to locate an underground utility.

State of the Art

Hukill's Leak Detection specializes in private utility locating, using state-of-the-art equipment for all pre-excavation and site planning needs. The State One-Call (811) only marks public utilities, those which are before the service meter. Any utility beyond the service meter is usually considered private and will not be covered under the one call system.

About Leak Detection

There are many good reasons to have our professionals check for water leaks such as avoiding property damage, reducing your operating costs, account for noticeable water losses and to avoid serious line breaks.

Leaks most commonly occur in older properties. However, newer properties experience problems as well. Factors such as severe climate changes, soil conditions and ground movement and even poor construction can contribute to unexpected pipe damage which, if left undetected can have detrimental and potentially costly side-effects.

Conducting a leak detection survey generally involves a primary survey and secondary survey. The primary survey investigates a suspect section of the pipe system. The secondary survey pinpoints or discounts potential leakage spots identified in the primary survey. This survery must systematically check the whole system. Locating water leaks in pipes used to mean messy exploratory digging that was time consuming and expensive. Our trained personnel use the most modern equipment and techniques to locate potential and actual problems quickly and therefore cost-effectively.

Video inspection of sewer and drain lines has become a standard in the plumbing industry. Hukill's leak detection can provide video Inspection service at reasonable rates. Incorporating video inspection service can provide better explanation and accuracy of diagnosis.
