Forget that!

always call...

no call no work..

mismarks have done me wrong in the past but i always dig to directly locate..

I've made guys dig down 5 feet to find the main trunk for a neighborhood...

I need to see it all before I pull.. Even then sh!t can happen.

Today I got a good laugh. This year one of the landscapers that I have done a fair amount of work for decided he was going to do it in house. So he pulled all the accounts that he subbed to me and I kept the ones I billed direct, I didn't really care because most of the places were a pita and we are still friends. Anyway today I am driving past one of the service accounts I used to do for him and I see they have the place torn apart and they have a rental lm42 pulling pipe. So I call him up to see how he is making out,it turns out they hit landscape lighting, cable, and buried refrigerant lines. I said are you sure you want to get into irrigation.
