ripov BS: Divination. Experience? Explanation? (37) RE: BS: Divination. Experience? Explanation? 27 Nov 17


I agree with Iains that if you start digging anywhere and get down to the water table you will have a well, whether fast or slow filling.
But the discussion here is about water companies finding pipes. And no-one knowing where they are.
I worked for a temporary traffic light company, and frequently heard
"we'll be here a while because we know there's a pipe here somwhere, but:-
1. the man who put it in has retired, or
2. the council has improved? the road, so the drawings are out of date.
"
So two options:- try divining in the hope that it'll be first time lucky, or dig several trial trenches and reinstate the road afterwards.
Doesn't it make economical sense to try divining if you've previously had at least some good results?
