Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) of the Houston, TX office was called by Windstone Partners to locate any obstructive reinforcement in the slab prior to repositioning the plumbing during a custom home remodel. Mitch Halquist, GPRS technician on site, used GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) 1600 MHz antenna to locate and mark out the reinforcement in the slab such as post tension cables. In this photo, GPR found 2 cables right next to the existing plumbing fixture. With a simple precautionary phone call to GPRS prior to breaking ground, a hazard was safely avoided, and the drain was able to be exposed without any reinforcement hits.
GPRS is the safe, accurate, and effective method for locating reinforcement such as post-tension, pre-tension and rebar. This innovative technology has zero radiation and can assemble on site and scan and mark out in real time. The GPRS of Houston, TX covers Humble, Spring, Tomball, The Woodlands, Conroe, Cypress, Katy, Missouri City, Sugar Land, Pearland and Pasadena, TX.
