Locating Rebar in Cement Decking .. Mission Viejo, CA.

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

I received a request from a swimming pool company. They wanted me to help them find the location of rebar that was in a recently poured cement decking. It seemed that somebody forgot to bond the rebar to a grounding system.

If I could locate the rebar it would save them from damaging the surface of the concrete plus the labor of tunneling in the wrong area.

I met Brian he showed me the area he needed me to work. It was fairly simple as my detector is set up to identify ferrous metals with a defined tone. I was also able to double check using my pinpointer because the rebar was less than 3” deep. Marking the location with painters tape, I was confident that it was a successful job.
