IC - You've got the essence of my problem;
So, if I understand correctly, you're running the pipe to fill the sleeve and/or control wire as well when you install the sleeve. Then you stub up several feet so that it's above grade. Eventually come back and cut the stub down to the correct depth under surface.
Love everything about it other than we'd never be able to back charge when they go missing, and then we'd be out more $ when we can't find them and/or they're destroyed.
I'm going to have to think hard on this... I definitively like the approach tho.
Rhett- a bobcat, 20 acres of dirt, maybe some building foundations, maybe not. A big thing around here is to get the parking lots paved before winter so that construction traffic doesn't have a mud issue on city streets.
