    Depends on soil conditions and pipe material. I've had good luck in clay & plastic pipe down over 12 feet in soft soil. Cast iron locates gets spotty over 6-8 feet. This using a Scout locator.

      As already mentioned it will depend on conditions:
      1. Battery strength in transmitter
      2. Battery strength in locator
      3. type of locator
      4. surrounding materials (don't forget voltage surrounding area)
      The max is probably going to be 20'.
