The RD500 Locator makes
locating plastic pipes quick, accurate and easy.
The RD500 uses a low-frequency, pressure wave carried by
fluid in the pipe. This pressure wave can be located by the RD500
receiver over distances of up to 500 feet. The pressure wave
"signal" can be applied at any fire hydrant, meter base, sprinkler head
or clean-out and is audible at the point of application.
The RD500 receiver comes with a 62-inch
earth probe, concrete/asphalt disc, headphones, carrying case, and
videotape. The receiver is powered by a 9-volt battery and provides
pinpointing information using an analog meter and headphones. A simple
gain control regulates the receiver sensitivity to locate mains and
service lines. If you would like you can buy the Transondes separately
and use your own leak detector to detect the centerline.
