    So are you saying that the dowsing sticks can be used to trace pretty much any conductor, even rope?

    What I meant was from what I could see on the video, It looked like you weren't tracing a pipe, looked like rope or something.

    Sorry if I'm not making sense, been pulling LONG days :sleeping:
    Still working on this system that I started MONDAY. Wrapping it up tomorrow. Been a steep learning curve but it looks good and the customer is thrilled.

    Good for you and your client:clapping:

    As for the rope in the video, this is the simplest way to demonstrate how a couple of wire angle rods react to an unseen object. I could walk the state of Jefferson finding buried objects and without digging each up, even i would have my doubts.

    This is a hard crowd to play my friend (without pics you're a liar and with pics you're just FOS) so the most effective way for me to convey the reaction of the rods when they are near or over a buried conductor is to place the conductor above ground and let you decide for yourself.

    You also should know that i don't do many installs and few repairs. I locate wires, valves, leaks, tanks etc. I find shiit, its what i do and i do it pretty well. :waving:

    Again, good for you and the client.

    I chose rope since it was easier to place in various directions than pipe
