Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Phoenix, AZ. was contacted by a local residential plumbing contractor to lay out all of the Post Tension cables inside a bathroom prior to remodeling. The contractor was needing to cut the floor to move some of the plumbing pipes around for the install of a new handicap shower/ bath. GPRS is able to come into a project like this and mark the exact locations of each PT cable and mark them directly on the floor as shown in the picture below. We also give the depth for each of the cables so the contractor is able to chip around these without hitting them. It is always a good idea to get these cables marked out prior to any saw cutting or drilling to avoid damage and added cost to have the cables repaired.
Ground Penetrating Radar is ideal on a busy construction site as well as a place of occupancy. GPR does not require evacuation of the area as does traditional x-ray concrete imaging. GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be around. Traditional x-ray is mostly done after hours; GPR can be done during normal business hours. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided. With GPR, there is no wait for developing films as with traditional x-ray. Only one side of the slab is needed for scanning so time and resources are much more ideal for tight schedules of projects. Ground Penetrating Radar is the new way to x-ray!
