When blowing a line thru this pipe for the local utility we couldn't get the line thru. figured we had a broken pipe so we used some fish tapes to mark out approx were we thought the break was. lo and behold right were Mr. fence man set his post for the gate. We even provided as builts and he still hit it..Nice little change order though.

Hope you charged them (the fence clowns) thru the nose. Have had this happen more than once also.
