Re: Detection of underground pipes
Could you provide more details?
Such as,
What kind of pipe?
From above ground or underground (inside of the pipe)?
What are you going to detect? Location of the pipeline or cracks on pipes?

Re: Detection of underground pipes
You could look at a device called 'Magic carpet'. It is an acoustic device for locating pipeline leaks in water systems from above ground. You can look the product up at www.stest.co.uk. Or if you want to discuss contact me directly
