  • Hi,

    Theres a lot of practical equipment which you can use on your own to locate underground utilities, such as the Leica Digicat

    Just for information.

  • Hi I am from NZ and we have 'Dial before you Dig' here.

    I have done alot of project management and the first thing that you have to do is locate services.

    Not all service providers are lodged with B4 U dig, as their business model is to charge the service provider for each referal.

    I guess I am saying be wary of B4 U Dig as they are a filter, and an incomplete one at that. At least in NZ.
