    Q:Will it detect a void

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello Cymp, thank you so much for your very good question. Unfortunately it can NOT detect a void, it has to be a sonde with 512Hz transmitter inside the pipe and then it can detect. Best regards

        A:  Hell JTGD, Thank you for your very good question. This locator can't help you to find the septic tank, it will find the 512Hz sonde transmitter. Sorry about that. Best regards.

          I purchased this particular locator because it picks up my 512 MHz transmitter. I also purchased this locator because is a fraction of the cost compared to some other brands. It’s not all high tech but it gets the job Done. Im a plumber and I attached my transmitter to my camera then pulled out my locator to follow the transmitter down the pipe the only thing I wish this locator could do is give me a Depth on the pipe But for the price can’t beat it!)

          512hz Transmitter
          I recently bought for our program at school. I bought it without realizing it did not come with a 512hz sonde transmitter. I tried looking for one at the Home Depot website but had no luck. Please let me know if they do sell it.

          Hello Juan, Thank you so much for your very good question. We do have camera systems with 512Hz sonde transmitter. But no worries, our camera systems are all modular. You can just buy a 512Hz sonde spring and screwed it on, will be working. Please contact us at 18773691199, we will be very happy to help you. Best regards. Forbestlogo

            Nowhere did I see an alert that you needed an expensive transmitter to use in addition to the pipe being tested had to be open and accessable. Our need was to locate existing supply lines in our mobile park without turning everyone's water off!
