Flexrod, often referred to as a flexi-rod or flexible rod, is a specialized accessory used in utility locating tasks, particularly with cable and pipe locators. Here’s what you need to know about flexrods:

  1. Design Flexrod 2: Flexrods are long, slender rods made from a flexible material such as fiberglass or composite. They are typically lightweight and easy to handle.
  2. Flexibility : As the name suggests, flexrods are designed to be flexible, allowing them to bend and conform to the contours of the ground. This flexibility enables users to navigate around obstacles and access hard-to-reach areas when tracing buried utilities.
  3. Length: Flexrods come in various lengths to accommodate different utility locating tasks and ground conditions. Longer flexrods provide greater reach for tracing utilities over longer distances, while shorter flexrods are more maneuverable in confined spaces.
  4. Connector Compatibility: Flexrods are equipped with connectors on one or both ends, which allow them to be easily attached to utility locating equipment such as cable and pipe locators. These connectors ensure a secure and reliable connection during tracing operations.
  5. Markings: Some flexrods may feature depth markings along their length, allowing users to gauge the depth of the utility being traced as the rod is inserted into the ground.
  6. Applications: Flexrods are commonly used in utility locating tasks by construction workers, utility technicians, and infrastructure maintenance crews. They are used to trace the path of buried utilities such as cables, pipes, and conduits, enabling accurate mapping and safe excavation practices.
  7. Versatility: Flexrods are versatile accessories that can be used in various soil conditions and environments, including grass, gravel, pavement, and soft ground. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor utility locating applications.
