I've seen them laying under freshly layed sod. We carry a roll of coax and splice kits in all our service and install vehicles. You ever want an upset client, cut off his T.V. and Internet!

Mine was also in poly. Only scratched it with my pick ax luckily.

It's free to get all lines marked. You never know what they did. Even then I hit my cable too at about 6 inches. Thankfully it was in poly pipe sheath. I cut through some old unmarked cable wires. I was like "what is that?".

I know where my utilities are. When I bought the house they were marked out so we could get the CATV installed. Even then I was careful just in case they were near the 8 inch mark. Never thought I'd have trouble at 2 inches.

I'm gonna join this gripe.
It's the law in Texas but the cable company in Houston can't be bothered.
It's "good luck and call us when you break it."

My shovel is magnetically attracted to cable line.

"Call before you dig" is the law in NJ, not that you will get a cable drop located.

Just venting

After hand digging in rockdirt for 400 feet or so, carefully 8 inches, I encounter the CATV cable - 2 inches deep!!!!!! At least I didn't hit the gas line or electric service.
