Certain work sites pose problems when it comes to identifying utility lines or tree roots that could possibly hinder EFS work or put EFS employees in danger. To help with these issues, EFS uses a technique called air knifing, or soft digging. In this technique, we use compressed air that flows through a nozzle and crumbles the dirt. By working in this way, we can safely identify utility lines or tree roots, without damaging either one of them and keeping everyone safe in the process. To see this process in action, watch this video from Bloodhound Utility Locators.
