Wonder why i became so involved involved in locating. We were digging well over 150 pools a year at the peak of the boom.
The law of averages tells me that the more you do, the more you expose yourself to a potential damage claim.
I learned to locate, practiced like a madman and have never stopped learning, never considered good enough good enough.
Irrigation locating ended up being a byproduct of my damage prevention intent.
