    Thats a lot of work , I would have flagged the heads got a rough idea of the pipe layout, checked pipe depth , and then plowed the wire in with the short blade . Repair any cut pipes due to plowing .

    I thought about it but there are so many wires and pipes I'd didn't want to chance it. The big part of the lawn is valve in head toros and there is alot of main running with no wire to trace.
