Right tool for the task at hand. I have the GFL3000 and like the high and low settings. The pulser that I used didn't have the dual power settings. I don't know if a newer unit does though.

I do have more 521s than I do pro800s but use the 800 more if that says anything.

What do the different settings tell you? I have been using the high setting mainly because the manual said that is the best option.

If you're looking for a series of faults then high power should be used. If you're looking for the larger(est) fault, then you should select the lower power output setting.

I try to use the lower output level as much as possible. Locating the larger faults and then after re-testing the wire path Persuing the lessor faults.

A few years ago there was a difference of opinions (go figure) on whether or not a fish tape could be located in a pipe when the pipe was full of water.

I had to locate and identify a single pipe using the fish tape method so I thought, " why not fill the pipe with water and prove or disprove the theory".

I induced water from one end after inserting the fish tape.


I located the path with the Armada pro-800. My signal was somewhat sketch due to low battery. I fixed that by plugging the unit in and performing the locate while charging the battery. I've done this before wth the 800.


In order to verify the target pipe I used an inductive amplifier to double check the pro-800. Six pipes crowded into a ditch so I want to improve my odds. Kinda the measure twice and cut once way of thinking. This is a lousy pic but at least you get an idea of what I am doing.
