Any tips on finding the path that the builder ran from the house to the (above ground) pool?

I am digging holes for footers for a deck, and I don’t want to hit the line.

Dial 811. They may locate private lines in NY. Otherwise rent an underground utility detector. RadioDetection makes several good units.
