    I'm pretty sure no locator will "hit" accurately on foil marking tape. A tracer wire would be better.

    And you would then need Navitrack Scout and Navitrack Brick at a minimum in the Ridgid Line.

      Thanks JC. I have never used the foil tape before. Only dug it up. For some reason I thought you could locate that stuff. I will stick with tracer wire

        We always had to place the foil tape X number of inchs above the burried pipe or wire as a "Hey you are getting close to something"
