i don't charge by the hour pete, i work on performance so i normally get the more difficult jobs, most of them are other locators failures.

there may be times when the controller is inaccessible. if you can set up over a wire path and locate the first valve you now have access to the system through the valve box. this might not sound like much but if the owner is absent and the valve is stuck open and you don't know where to shut the water off this could be a savior.

i spend a lot of time researching methods and machines, sometimes i don't come up with anything, sometimes i do.

Pack joints are pricey, to be sure, but I've never had one fail. Plus, they are so easy to install.
