  • Navitrack through concrete?

    Hey guys,

    I need to locate and inspect a 4" cast iron sewer that's about 3 feet deep. The floor is about 1' of concrete with some rebar. Local Ridgid rep said the signal should be ok but maybe a little weak.

    Any experience or input?

    As long as it has the 512 transmitter in it you will be fine. I have located many lines under a concrete slab and even concrete driveways.

        concrete is not the problem. rebar should be fine as it's spaced.

        indoors, watch out for interference from computer monitors. if need be shut off the monitor if it's too close to your work area.

          You should get a nice strong signal. I located a sewer line in the street at about 10-12ft deep...that was a weaker signal.
