Rush Locates, LLC can locate the sewer pipe on your property right away for less cost than a sewer scope. We access a sewer line from a cleanout and insert 100′ of a traceable wire or push rod. If the sewer line is deeper than 15′ down we offer a special ‘deep sewer locating‘ service to locate sewer pipes up to 50 feet deep.

Sewer locating costs $100 for the first hour and $75 for each addition hour. Rush Locates can locate and mark a sewer line simultaneously as we perform other private utility locates. However due to the nature of sewer line locating it can take longer than locating other line.

If you want to know how to locate a sewer line in your property then give us a call at(503) 939-9585 or schedule our sewer locator service online with our easy to use booking form.

Please call if you are outside our normal work area, as we may need to book multiple time slots.

Sewer Pipe Locator Service Only

When you only want to know where the sewer runs then we can help. However you need to have access to the cleanout. We will not go through a roof vent or pull a toilet, that can be done with a sewer scope.

We do not perform sewer scopes. There are a number of great sewer scope inspection companies in town. If you need a sewer inspection video then we are happy to direct you to a few of them. However we can locate plastic sewer lines, concrete sewer pipes, cast iron sewers, PVC sewer pipes, and ABS sewer lines. We just won’t make a determination on what is happening inside.

811 is a free service that will mark all public utilities on public property and will often mark public utilities onto private property as far as the meter or meter base. However for sewer systems however the marking isn’t done unless the sewer main is present. But have no fear! Rush Locates can use a sewer scope reel with a locating sonde to locate where the sewer line runs on your job site.
