Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Arizona was contacted by a local resident to locate and confirm voids underneath the concrete slab in their residence in the greater Phoenix, AZ area.
The local residence experienced a broken copper water line that leaked 7,000 gallons of water underneath the concrete slab. Immediately, this caused unpredictable cracking and settling of the concrete slab which led to cracking and shifting of walls as well as the roof / ceiling. In order to pursue proper recourse, it was necessary to determine if there were, in fact, settling and shifting of soils under the concrete slab without causing destruction into occupied residence during this research.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was able to arrive within 24 hours notice, to provide non-destructive testing research and see through the concrete floor to confirm the presence of voids underneath the concrete floor. This provided the critical information needed by the homeowner to take the next steps for repairs while saving cost and time by avoiding demolition and destructive testing.
Ground penetrating Radar mapping is a great tool to scan many areas to see beyond the surface of a concrete slab, not only for voids underneath a concrete slab, but also for post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes. Ground penetrating radar can also be used to locate underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer, and other objects prior to digging or excavating.
