General Pipe Cleaners - Gen-Eye Hot Spot Utility Locators

Locating buried utilities used to be tough. Not anymore! With the powerful 5 watt Hot Spot Transmitter, location is easier than ever. More power means more signal to locate. Choose one of 4 frequencies – 1KHz, 8KHz, 33KHz or 65KHz. You can select the frequency and power that best suits your application.

Locate via direct connection using the cords and ground stake. Simply attach the transmitter leads to both ends of the pipe, or if the other end of the pipe is not accessible, use the ground stake to complete the circuit. Or place the transmitter over the pipe and use induction mode, or place the optional clamp around the pipe to energize the line.
