Rated 4 out of 5 by from Money-saver Bought this when plumbing a bathroom after flooring people had punctured a pipe that was just under the floorboards. I've done the same thing myself in the past, so I felt their pain. I was sceptical how well this would work but it worked a treat in the end, identifying two water pipes and a cable. "False" readings for nail heads and screws were easy to disregard by tracing the line of pipes and cables - if the signal disappeared quickly it was a nail. Easy to use, robust and accurate enough for most purposes. The professional units probably have more accuracy and detect deeper cables and pipes, but this one was perfectly usable for my purposes. If it saves one punctured pipe or a drilled cable I reckon it has paid for itself - recommended addition to the toolkit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The answer to a DIYer's prayer I'm extremely pleased with the scanner - it did everything that was written on the box. Moreover, it was waiting for me when I called in to collect - plus a pleasant smile from the young lady assistant! What more can you ask?
