Heitman Laboratories has manufactured the RD500 pipe Locator System sold exclusively through our largest distributor world-wide since the original development of the concept. We also manufacture the Aquatrac 50 and the Aquatrac 100 for another of our major distributors. We continue to serve as the only authorized repair center for both of these product lines as well. Our TransOndes (pulse wave generators) have been both designed and calibrated for the proper field application and are sold as kits to facilitate use of the plastic pipe locator systems.
Our kits include the products needed to access the three major water sources so that proper pressure waves can be generated safely for the specific applications being located. These kits come specifically designed for use in low power sprinkler type pipe systems, medium power meter pit systems, and high power fire hydrant systems. They include the TransOnde as well as the most common fittings needed for application in the field. When these kits are combined with the Model P50 PipeTool™ Pipe Locating System or the Model P100 PipeTool™ Pipe Locating system ease of location is assured and risks of damage to the system being tested are limited.
Our typical customer is anyone that regularly has the need to locate plastic water pipe regardless of the reason. This would include but not be limited to rural water companies, sprinkler or irrigation companies, public utilities, contractors, developers, pipe locating services, and municipalities.
