Saving property and saving lives
People don’t consider the location of our underground assets until we peer into the hole we just dug and wonder what we just dug through. Now try to explain to your neighbour why his phone doesn’t work and probably won’t for some time or, what the smell is, as you have just carved your way through a sewerage pipe.
In addition to this, you may find that, in a climate where water is becoming more scarce and expensive, you are leaking this precious resource into the ground through a broken pipe.
Many people are surprised to learn just how shallow these essential services are and the time to find out is not after you’ve broken through one.
