There are many things that are buried underneath the ground around your property, some of which you may not be aware of; you should get some help in locating these troublesome items before you get around to digging up the ground to so that you can avoid any unnecessary expenses.

What Risks Are Involved Without Locating Services?

There is a chance that you may hit a water main leading to your home which will lead to flooding and hundreds of dollars of wasted water, or you may hit the sewer line and let raw sewage seep out onto your property leaving you with a small scale environmental disaster on your hands. And, if you are really unlucky, you might accidentally rupture the gas main going to your home, allowing hazardous gas to leak out and catch fire.

You may think that there would be no problem if you are not planning on using heavy machinery and would only be digging using a spade or a shovel. But think about this, if you do encounter a pipe when you are digging, you cannot continue any further and you have to start again in another area; you basically wasted a lot of time, money and energy digging without locating the buried pipes.

How Can Locating Services Help?

Professional locating services use state of the art technology to find out exactly where in your property the buried pipes are located and then mark them for you. Most companies use ground penetrating radar, the same kind that mining companies use to find mineral deposits, so you can be sure of their accuracy and precision.

Once the areas are clearly marked out, you can continue with your excavation without any fear of hitting anything of importance on your way down. Besides making digging easier, locating services can also help find leaks and breaks in your buried pipes so that repairs can be done more efficiently; this is much better than digging up the entire pipeline and cause hundreds of dollars worth of damage on your property, and it will also help make the job go much faster.
