About Solinas Technologies:

At Solinas Technologies our mission is to develop locating technologies, where no locating has been possible, with a focus on public safety. We have two primary technologies:  Accurate location of plastic pipe without tracer wire installed on it has long been an issue for both gas and water utilities. While acoustical methods have been used in the past to find plastic pipe, they have had only limited effectiveness. We have developed a new innovative patented technology for plastic pipe location using acoustics that is both fast and effective.  An acoustic technology technology to rapidly locate and document the location of Lead Service Lines (LSL’s) to help water utilities prioritize them for replacement. The technology works by placing an acoustic executor and transducer on a service key. There is no need to enter the house or building, making the technology very efficient and fast to implement.
