Vom test show 1, no continuity. No above 600k or below 600k readings.
What would you guys do, in regard to this situation?
They could have easily repaired the piping but not known they demolished the wiring when the installed the walkway.. Never trust the cement guys they only care for themselves.

1 ohm could very likely mean all the wires are striped and touching eachother. ( As they got shreaded from the trenching )

Why not expose the wiring where you know it's at . If you can find the pipe on the other side of the walkway but roots are in the way- why not pogo and find the pipe a few feet down where the roots are less intrusive. Find the piping and spot locate the wire- Then go for a reroute wire replacement of that broken section.

With the pro 800 locator you could turn on broad cast mode and try to find the wire that way. Jim will have some good tips.
