Concrete Scan for Rebar, PT Cables, Conduits - San Diego, California
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Southern California was contacted by a general contractor in order to scan for rebar, post tension cables, or conduits in a concrete deck prior to coring (4) 2” holes for a new drain location. We scanned one area, approximately 18’X6’, and marked all of the findings onto the surface with spray paint. In the areas scanned, we located a 6”x6” section of wire mesh. We were able to locate all dowel bars in the area for them to avoid when drilling.
GPR scanning is a great tool to use to locate post tension cables, rebar, and conduits. It can also be used to scan for underground utilities prior to excavating or directional boring.
