Locating underground utilities is becoming more of a challenge as the vast array of lines on the ground continues to increase. As the ground under our feet becomes more congested with utility lines, it’s vital to identify the location of utilities — gas, fiber, water, telecommunications, and sewer — to ensure the safety of your crew and protect your bottom line. Basically, locating underground lines is similar to tuning into your favorite radio station, says Matt Manning, locating equipment product manager for McLaughlin. Each station transmits a different signal, and locators are like a radio designed to pick up those signals, says Manning. These signals help identify the exact location of an underground utility. Many utility lines give off a charge or transmit a signal, and in most cases, each line has a different charge or signal just like radio stations. However, some lines do not give off a charge or transmit a signal. In these cases, a transmitter can be used to induce a signal onto a metal line, which allows the locator to pick up the signal.

A fitting is used in pipe systems to connect straight pipe or tubing sections, adapt to different sizes or shapes and for other purposes, such as regulating (or measuring) fluid flow. “Plumbing” is generally used to describe the conveyance of water, gas, or liquid waste in domestic or commercial environments; “piping” is often used to describe the high-performance (high-pressure, high-flow, high-temperature or hazardous-material) conveyance of fluids in specialized applications. “Tubing” is sometimes used for lighter-weight piping, especially that flexible enough to be supplied in coiled form.

Backflow Issues

Backflow preventers are more than just fittings on a system of piping to deliver water. The are installed in the irrigation system to protect our drinking water, save lives and prevent illness. If you understand what they do and why they are needed, you will be able to ensure that the projects you are involved with complying with local codes. A good understanding of irrigation backflow will also help to reduce the risk of litigation against you from creating a cross connection and putting public health at risk.

California and local codes have now been developed to identify the requirements for ensuring that the water distribution system provides safe water. Local codes vary, but most cities have established guidelines on the type of backflow preventers to install to help protect the potable water supply. You should become familiar with your local codes as they relate to irrigation systems.

Believe it or not, your landscaping could be a danger to your plumbing system. Tree roots will travel long distances to find water, especially when drought conditions persist. When trees and shrubs get thirsty, they follow the trail of moisture vapors escaping from small cracks, holes or poorly sealed joints in water and sewer lines. Roots penetrate these openings to reach the nutrients and moisture inside the pipes.

If not stopped, roots can completely fill a pipe with multiple hair-like root masses at each point of entry. These root wads quickly become clogged with grease and other debris flowing from homes to the main sewer line, resulting in reduced flow and slowed drains. A complete blockage may occur if the roots are not removed. With nowhere to go, waste water and sewage may back up into your home.
