Private Electric Locate
It is a little known fact that after you call (811) or your local One Call that all your utilities may not be located. In some cities and regions the utility companies may not locate your private electric service or your private water service along with any other private electrical wiring on your property, examples would be ELECTRIC LINE TO WELL, WALKWAY,DRIVEWAY AND LOT LIGHTING, GARAGE, POOL, GENERATOR ETC.. After notifying your local One Call (811) check to see if your electric service has been marked out. This will be clearly delineated with red paint and flags from the utility right of way to your electric meter. If you have other underground electrical wiring on you property and you do not see these markings please contact us before digging.
Using (EM) Electromagnetic Locating Techniques a Bullseye Underground Utility locator will respond to your address and transmit a radio frequency through your electrical service or other underground private electric lines, locating them with red paint and flags. Bullseye locators will avoid using paint on driveways, pavers and in garden area unless specified by customer to do so. You do not need to be home during the time of the utility locate. Please ensure that all pets are secured and access to your property is available to the utility locator on the day of locate.
Our service consists of a utility locator placing red paint in lines approximately 18 inches long approximately, 20 feet apart with flags in every other marking if requested. Bullseyemarkings are very accurate but due to the nature of the equipment a tolerance zone of at least 18 inches on either side of the utility markings needs to be observed. This means that your actual cable could be located at any depth within that tolerance zone. Bullseye Underground recommends if you are digging within this area to dig by hand (Test Pit) and verify the location of the underground cable before proceeding forward with any type of mechanical excavation. Note: If you have dug a test pit and you are unable to locate the physical location of any cable located by Bullseye Underground please contact us before further excavation.
