A couple years ago I saw some guys from the Water Department using divining rods. I asked them what was going on. They said you can't find plastic pipe with electronics, but you can with divining rods.

I might try that, but I would feel so foolish...

Would a metal detector really work? I've been wanting to try one of those; if it would work, maybe it is my excuse to get one. Actually I have one for finding nails in lumber; probably not sensitive enough, but it would be free.

Take 2 -14" pieces of #6 bare solid and bend 4" 90's for handles and start devining.
