Trace-Safe wires - 3 colors

Water Blocking Tracer Wire Connector System

You know the safety issues associated with locating and working around underground utilities and pipelines. You know the headaches brought on by a poor or nonexistent signal when you're trying to locate those utilities. And you know the expense of doubling up on inferior tracer wire in the hope that it remains unbroken and doesn't corrode. But most of all, you know that tracing and locating underground gas, water and sewer pipelines is a critical mission. Get it wrong and the results are serious – from high material and labor costs to serious if not life-threatening consequences.

That's why it's time for you to know Trace-Safe®, the Water Blocking Tracer Wire System from NEPTCO. It's the only comprehensive water blocking tracer wire system available today.

"Our first 'Beta' test which was completed last fall showed improved results as our experience using the NEPTCO product continues. Platte 4 is very satisfied with TRACE-SAFE [for water] and the new connectors are very user friendly and easier to apply. We are ready to place another order!"

"We successfully installed more than 1,400 feet of TRACE-SAFE using a cable blower and micro-duct in a network located in O'Neals, California. It blew in at about 100 feet per minute and I was impressed. I think TRACE-SAFE has great advantages in the field, particularly when high strength is required. The connectors make inline splicing easy, too. Even those that are not craft folks will be able to use them."
