All customer feedback is important to use, especially questions. We’ve been getting a few of the same questions lately, so we decided to answer them here. If your question still hasn’t been addressed, feel free to contact us and ask.
The purpose of concrete scanning is to determine whether your concrete slab contains conduits, post-tension cables, rebar, or any other hidden dangers.
Concrete slabs can make up your floor, roof deck, ceiling, or any other concrete flat horizontal surface. Conduits, which are tubes or pipes used to conceal wires, may be embedded into a concrete slab to provide electricity to a building or buildings. Post tension cables are steel wires in a plastic sheath used in concrete construction to allow for thinner slabs to be used and for greater lengths between support columns. They stay in and are “tensioned” after the concrete is poured. Rebar is also a steel structure used to reinforce concrete, which stays in the concrete slab after it is poured.
Digging into any of these structures when completing demolition work is dangerous. Damaged electrical wires can take power from surrounding buildings, damage machinery and injure workers around it. Ripping out post-tension cables and rebar can be damaging to the machinery and take down parts of the structure that you didn’t mean to take down. Unexpected crumbling of buildings can not only ruin your plans for the rest of the area but also injure others onsite.
We at GeoRadar use GPR concrete scanning technologies to inform you about where dangerous elements lie in your concrete so that you can complete your demolition work safely.
A jet rodder is a machine used to hose down a pipe or pipes to remove blockage and waste. Otherwise known as a high-pressure jetter or sewer jetter, it has a high-pressure flexible hose attached to a precision nozzle. We use a drain camera to guide the jet rodder down the pipe, then pump water into it for it to force out of the nozzle in powerful jets. The jet of water washes away the source of the pipe blockage.
The difference between a jet rodder and a high-pressure water cleaner – which is a device you can attach to a hose – is the jet rodder has even higher pressure to unlock bigger drains faster and more effectively. At 5000psi, a jet rodder can cut through oils, fats, old waste, blockages and even tree roots.
The reason why a jet rodder is the preferable method to clean pipes is because it causes no damage to them. Whereas traditional pipe cleaning methods might require destructive excavation, the high-pressure water from the jet rodder doesn’t affect the pipes around it, only the build-up of material inside the pipe.
We have a jet rodder for hire to clean your stormwater drains, pipes and more. Hire a jet rodder from GeoRadar for your project anywhere within the Wide Bay and Burnett regions.
