Yes, we have business liability insurance coverage with Liberty Mutual Insurance.
Yes. We first locate the water main. Next we locate the water edges outside the pipe. After we review the shape of the water edges we can determine where the leak is in the main water pipe and mark it. Now the time has come to dig only one hole to the leaky pipe for the repair. We just saved you a lot of digging time.
Sinkholes are a result of the cavern's ceiling allowing water and soil to fall into the cavern. If there is a stream of water running through the cavern, the soil will be washed away. We can see if there are caverns under your property and tell you how deep they are. If we find water running in a cavern, we will mark the walls of the cavern and then the edge of the water stream. Now you may understand why your garage has cracks in the concrete floor or why the house is settling.
Yes. Many location companies do not own equipment that can find plastic pipe. What's Below can find and locate within 3 inches all types of pipe underground. (For radiant heated floors we can detect even closer with our Punto Geofluxor.)

Yes and no. Many times we have been asked if we can find gold. It depends on if it is part of the earth or a lonely lost piece, like a ring of gold. If you loose a ring in the grass, we can look for it and find it. We cannot find a gold mine for you though. That is part of the earth and not different. The ring is different and our equipment can detect it.
Yes. The state of Indiana has three different sections of underground. The southern third of Indiana is much more active with underground streams in caverns that make sinkholes. Central Kentucky is also made of the same type of underground.
