I recently purchased and received a new 521a valve and wire locater. I read the directions and am now ready to practice. I am testing its use on a 15 zone system I installed last fall to see how well it will locate valves and wires. if anyone has any suggestions or helpful hints for using it please respond.

Don't trash your back....I've seen too many people bend over getting the
"wand" closer to the ground...don't need to. Go slow; you'll run into "phantoms" caused by other wires, use common sense where you think the
path is. One of my guys once "tracked" wires into a store next door to where
we were tracking, he just didn't think
