    Anyone use metal detectors in their locating?

    Thanks.

    I sometimes use a valve locator which is kind of a hybrid. It uses different technology in the same unit to locate ferrous and non ferrous materials.

      i used my metal detector at the happiest place on earth a number of years back. the landscapers buried every valve box on a weekend and the plumbers had no idea how to find their buried valves.

      took me 2 days to find most of the and all the scrap metal debris left in the planters

        use mine in the winter to locate water meter boxes under the snow. It never sees the sun in the summer time unless I drop a tool in a water filled ditch line.

          I use mine to locate coins and rings ;-) Rick.. I think you and I have the same metal Fischer Detector. Thats the tricky thing with metal detectors... having em discriminate between the different metals.

          Yeah I know.. I am a nerd for using a metal detector as a hobby
