DEEP1 Magnets for Utilities

Find buried PVC and all utilities economically and quickly

Magnetic location is an extremely efficient utility locating technology, especially when used in conjunction with DEEP-1 magnetic markers.  Firms and agencies that implement magnetic location and magnetic marker utility marking schemes are likely to find and mark subsurface utilities more quickly and accurately, and will suffer less damage to underground assets.

  • DEEP-1 magnetic markers gives you fast, low cost, permanent, and precise magnetic location for all underground utilities
  • Ideal for all subsurface marking...can be buried deep and away from surface digging.

Berntsen DEEP-1 magnetic markers are the standard of underground location.  Hundreds of thousands of our magnetic markers are in use in nearly every aspect of industry and government. 

Berntsen DEEP-1 Magnetic Utility MarkersDEEP-1 markers take chance out of equation in marking and mapping underground locations.  For example, suppose you have a buried PVC (gas, water, sewer, etc.) pipeline or plastic phone duct and need to find a "T" "Y" or stub.  With a DEEP-1, no time is wasted hooking up for a tone test set.  No need to worry that a tracer tape or wire is broken.  Search the area with a Schonstedt magnetic locator you can find the exact spot you need.

The DEEP-1 can mark anything...even a hole in the ground.  Major mineral exploration companies use the DEEP-1 magnetic marker to re-locate test borings.  The colorful plastic case can even be stamped with data in the field and data recorded on the maps for future reference.  Fast recovery assures mining operations begin at the proper location. 

The DEEP-1 consists of a high-strength, permanent magnetic material in a rugged
polyethylene color-coded case and can be located up to 10 feet (3.05m).

The DEEP-1 Magnetic Underground Marker for Utilities is available in five colors, which represent the various color designations for the different types of utilities (as established by the Underground Service Alert (U.S. Center) and the American Public Works Association (APWA). Colors include: Blue (water), Green (sewer), Orange (communications, Red (electric, Yellow (gas).
