does a lateral line contain enough pressure to make use of the rd500? without check heads and what not?

if the pipe is dry, is this useless?

Crank up the rpm and cut it instead of dragging it and call it done.

I guess one advantage of living in a northern state is that most utilities are buried too deep to be disturbed by sprinkler work, and those that are within range of the surface are as easily traced as a wire.

Further south, with a trenched system, I would only envision the system mainline as being the one thing you would absolutely want to avoid, and it should have wiring buried in the same trench. A lateral line? Who cares, just bust it and repair it.

Easily traced as wire, how?
___


After utilities said all was clear for < 16",

I trenched a house water line that was only 8" inches deep. it sucked.

Greenlee or (radiodetection?) called today, they suggested witching.

I have it easy because all the utilities but natural gas are traceable by the metal in the pipes or cables. Natural gas, in the poly pipe, has a trace wire buried with it, so once more, no worries.

If it's utilities that worry you, their locating is someone else's job. Let them do their work.

I still do my own locating to verify gas lines, and to mark the cable TV drops no one ever seems to care about (except the customers)

are you saying that if the water purveryor district-ibutor said "lines are clear for trenching <16" and i burst a water line at 8"....that I should not have paid a plumber to de-dirt the clogged interior appliances? but rather called the water-selling people and suggested for them to do it?

If a purveyor claims there are none of their pipes within a foot of the surface by way of their actually being on the site and marking the line, then they own the result. But just how many times are you crossing the marked line, that you can't dig and verify?
