Underground Wiring Repair and Locating Service
When it comes to locating and repairing underground wiring, our qualified Atlanta electricians at Aardvark Electric, Inc. use state-of-the-art equipment to pinpoint the problem. We can use our wire and cable tracing equipment to find fault situations caused by splices, nicked wires, ground faults, and more. Then, we quickly repair the fault and restore the area to its original condition.
We can locate and repair underground wiring/cabling for anything, including:
- Pole Lights
- Landscape Lighting
- Sub-Panel Feeders
Ground faults occur when your underground electrical wiring has somehow become damaged. Damage causes current to dissipate into the ground rather than reaching your electrical panel or outdoor lighting.
Locating Underground Wiring
At Aardvark Electric, Inc., we provide underground wire locating and repair service with our state-of-the-art equipment made by 3M™ Dynatel™. This allows us to trace underground wires and cables to find the damage or break (ground faults).
Our 3M™ Electronic Marker Systems can be used to locate:
- Service drops
- Buried transformers and splices
- Street lighting
- Distribution loops
- Conduit stubs
- Service laterals
- Buried splices of all types
- Buried service drops
- Bends: changes of direction, arcs
- Depth changes: lateral deflection
We have the ability to pinpoint the location of the damage to the wire. Once the broken wire is located, it can be repaired instead of being replaced.
The only way to carry out underground wire repair is to dig it up, which means we’re going to have to find exactly where the fault is located. Aardvark Electric uses the latest 3M™ Dynatel™ underground wire locator technology to accurately and reliably trace lines and repair underground wiring.
This specialized tool transmits a variety of high-frequency trace frequencies into the ground to locate and trace wires. Based on the feedback from this signal, the underground wire locator determines the location, depth, and direction of underground wiring.
With this technology, the Aardvark Electric team can quickly and accurately determine the exact location to dig up for your underground wiring repair. Our electricians are highly experienced in using these tools to provide the fastest and most effective underground wire repair service for our valued customers.
This versatile technology can detect faults in a variety of situations. It even calculates the strength of any faults detected. Some minor underground faults can occur without any significant effect on your home’s electrical system. Our underground wire tracer ensures that we don’t waste time repairing something that isn’t causing problems while leaving the real issue unresolved.
Once our team finds the underground electrical wiring that needs repairs and digs it up, we use effective rustless splicing techniques to ensure that you’ll never have to worry about that fault again. Overall, the entire process takes just a few hours to handle your underground wire repair.
Always Choose Professional Underground Wiring Repair
Pretty much every kind of electrical work is best left to the professionals, and that’s particularly true for underground electrical wiring repair.
You’ve likely already heard that you should call your power company for line locations before starting any excavation projects to avoid digging up underground power lines. In this case, you’re intentionally digging up underground power lines, so you’re at serious risk of electrocuting yourself.
Instead, you should trust your underground wire repair to the team at Aardvark Electric, Inc. We have the knowledge and the experience to handle the job safely while also delivering quick and reliable results. There’s no reason to put your own safety at risk trying to handle professional underground wiring repair.
The benefits of repairing a wire over replacing it include:
- The cost of repairing the wire can be significantly less than the cost of replacing it.
- Only the area above the break will need to be dug up for the repair. This will reduce or eliminate damage to landscaping and parking lots/driveways.
- The repair can usually be completed in a few hours.
We can carry out repairs very quickly thanks to the accuracy of our 3M™ Dynatel™ underground wire tracer and its powerful fault-finding abilities. While dealing with other underground utilities can be a major undertaking, underground wiring repair is minimally invasive and won’t require digging up your entire yard.
Professional underground wire locating and repair is in most cases much better than re-trenching and/or re-installing new cabling/wiring, so let our highly trained Atlanta electrical wiring team save the day.
With Aardvark Electric, you always get professional electricians who can deliver the best results for your electrical needs. We can even provide same-day service to restore your home’s power if your sub-panel feeder needs underground wiring repairs.
