OKM Waterfinder - Water Detection Equipment
The Waterfinder (water locator) is mostly used in dry areas and most wanted in countries with water deficiency to search for ground water or new water resources. This measuring instrument is capable to locate new water sources in various ground conditions. The water detector is most effective in sandy soils, desert areas, rocky grounds and in mountain areas.
The Waterfinder is based on a geoelectric measuring method, to locate water deposits in the ground. The geoelectrical measuring method is used to measure the ground resistivity and the different electrical conductivity of water deposits. So the water locator can recognize small variations in the underground structure of the measured area and can detect anomalies from the sourrounding soil. Such anomalies can be water deposits, ground water, humid places or accumulation of water in certain underground strata.
