How to install Blue-Water Underground Omni Marker

Let’s take a look at the Blue Omni Marker by Greenlee from our YouTube channel.

How do we install these? Let’s figure it out.

  1. First, you need to determine whether or not the Omni Marker needs to be secured to the object being marked. If it does then you need to attach it using 1 or 2 cable ties.
  2. Place the marker over the object to be marked as shown in the image below. The Omni Marker can be buried in any orientation.
  3. Cover the marker with six inches of soil to prevent movement during backfill.
  4. Backfill the hole or trench normally.

Easy, right! There are couple things you need to keep an eye on during your installation. If you’re marking an object that is metallic, the marker should be placed at least four inches above the object and the space between should be filled with soil. If you’re marking a non-metallic object, the marker can be placed directly over the object.

The Omni Marker can be reliably detected if the distance between the locator and the marker is five feet of less. Do not bury the marker deeper than that.

The Omni Marker is patented and other patents are pending, if you need to order these online you can pick this up and other colors at Discount-Low-Voltage.com and if you do place an order congratulations on purchasing the best underground locating marker in the Galaxy.
