The Right Way To Perform Line Locating in Austin, TX

Locating buried underground lines is extremely difficult. Without line locating service you will be wasting time, energy, and money in digging and searching for underground lines.

You can’t expect emergency plumbing issues to occur in the areas where you can easily reach them. Line locating is one of the most challenging tasks for plumbers, especially in old buildings. Underground leaks, clogs, breakage, cracks, and other problems are not just expensive to fix but are difficult to reach as well. Locating underground water lines and repairing them can take a lot of time and money. Your plumber may spend a lot of time digging and searching buried lines without a reliable method to find them. The primary job to perform underground line repair is line locating. Austin Area Plumbing provides effective plumbing services to locate underground lines.

Line Locating Service for Your Property

Using a two-step approach, a line locating service is provided to locate the underground plumbing lines. Several other methods are used to find the lines, fixtures, and drains. The two-step approach involves ground-penetration radar and a camera. During underground line locating service, the plumber sends a camera into the pipe or drain system. The access point could be inside your home or anywhere out with better visibility. The plumber gets a general idea of the location of the pipe. Problems such as tree roots penetration, rust, material buildup, or other damages become visible to the plumber using a camera. 

The sonar or radar equipment allows plumbers to precisely complete a line locating service and dig without wasting time. You can also check with the city zoning office if they are aware of the exact location of sewer pipes. Plumbers can also use an automatic transmitter that they can send into the pipe and locate the area with above-ground locators, making line locating easy.

Honest Feedback From Our Clients


I like to support local businesses that do an outstanding job. I needed outside pipes replaced and Dennis had my water back up and working in no time. He was very professional and easy to work with. The quick service was especially appreciated since I have an infant. Thanks Austin Area Plumbing!


We call Austin Area Plumbing for all of our household needs. It's nice to see the same faces for our home improvements and repairs. They always give us competitive rates and great service.


I contacted Dennis when I needed some work done fairly quickly. He was extremely accommodating and came out the same day. He even came back the next day without seeming hassled as he needed some different equipment. He had such a friendly, professional manner and never talked "down" to me as some other service companies will do. I would definitely call on Dennis again!
