    i don't mind making a mistake as long as i learn a lesson and it will not happen again.
    i had a set of homes to seed and aerate this morning and pulled up and none were flagged out.i droped the flags off at 3pm friday along with a notice stateing what time i will be out and none flagged...
    the lession learned is that i am calling each one the night before and the ones that are not flagged the night will be called in the morning...

    you have some fine print in your aeration contracts that says you won't be responsible for any damage to underground cables or pipes that aren't properly marked as instructed.

    This is a god topic though. Lets talk about a few different things.

    What size core are you taking out (how many inches?)

    I don't know much about irrigation systems, but I assumed they would burry the piping deep enough that you couldn't get it with an aerator, right?

    I know your talking about heads getting tore up here, but I've heard people on here in other threads going through pipes.
