Septic Location

Looking to buy the flushable tracer, and a receiver. Anybody got a favorite locator? I’m thinking the 512 Hz is good enough, I’m mostly dealing with concrete and poly tanks.


Hi Marcy, we use Prototek FTP-8 which is 512 MHZ.

Flushable Transmitters - PrototekPrototek

We chose the 512 MHZ because it’s compatible with most sewer cameras that have a sonde in the camera head. We use a rigid sea snake which has become an invaluable tool for use.

Good luck, Pete

I’ve been using Prototek for about ten years.

How well does it work with deep lines? The advertised range is 8 feet max in cast iron

I’d hate to have to retrieve it…
