Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance Extremely poor performance, failed to find a single timber behind pink plaster board and thin plaster. We had to hang flame proof lights that are extremely heavy and already potted off to a new ceiling. Ended up having to chain drill the brand new ceiling to locate timbers as this scanner couldn’t locate them. Customer and decorator was not happy

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable Gave readings of every sort on an unknown situation enough to create doubt Tried later on known situations for timber studs, cables and pipes and not trustworthy in any way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I tried .. and tried and tried I read the mixed reviews but proceeded anyway as I live in a new build timber frame house .... and therein lies, I think, the issue. For the garage I had half a wall exposed so I can see timber frames, conduits, plastic pies etc and the other 3 walls that were finished, chip boarded up, plasterboard, plastered and painted. Even though I knew exactly where the solid wood beams were I could not locate them with any confidence that, on a wall I did not know, to any level let alone to a result I could trust. I think the issue was that with so much modern insulation material in the timber frame build structure the change in material density could not be detected. It also showed magnetic and wires where I knew there were none. Maybe on flimsy metal frame and plasterboard stud walls it could work. If I hadn't have read the review that said 'I even got a 2nd one because I thought the 1st one was faulty' I'd also be asking for a replacement instead of a return :-( Hope this helps

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pipe finding made easy So far only used for one job so far so I have given it a medium score for reliability so far. As to the product itself it is so simple to use even I mastered it in minutes. The easy to read display tells you clearly when you are nearing and centralised over either metals or electrical cables. These are separate settings and there is also one for wood i.e battens in walls.

Hi, will it detect plastic pipe please?

Asked by: tted
Hi "tted", the GMS 120 is not designed to detect plastic pipes. However, the D-tect 120 will detect plastic pipes.

Will this indicate any holes in a wall, covered by render

Have a 15th century property with holes in the wall, possibly for putting wooden posts in. There are probably others that have been covered with kind render and would like to find them
