Hello guys

I need to install some external car charges outside in a car park on the wall.

Problem being is that the building has a PME system and there are no drawings of where the services are buried so I want to avoid using an earth steak.

Is there any way I can get away with not having to use an try system?

They’re ok but not that accurate and won’t detect plastic services etc. Also the user needs experience to understand the readings.
Should be OK if he can read, RTM, or if he can't read hire a firm that traces underground services, or use a couple of bent welding rods, I used to be a dab hand with those, especially water pipes.
