Rated 4 out of 5 by from Costly mistake avoided...... While installing some new shelves close to an electrical plug socket on my wall, I decided that I should check for cables before drilling any holes. I'm very glad that I did so, and that I chose the easy-to-use Bosch Truvo for the detection works. My wall fixings were about 20mm short of the detection depth limit so I knew with reasonable comfort that I would be covered by the Truvo's detection capabilities if I checked every drill location before making an actual hole in the wall. Operation was straight forward and the detector was ready for use straight out of the box. I'm also pleased to say that after drilling the required holes, the electrics still work, there are no wet patches or smells of gas, so it appears that the Truvo has paid for itself in the avoidance of expensive accidental damage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Device Bought this to err on the side of caution as I was fitting shelves in an alcove for a customer. Two sockets, aerial cable, speaker wires you name it all behind plasterboard. Like previous reviewers you need to put your hand on the wall near where you're scanning for this to work accurately to remove any static. So using this tool I've managed not to put a drill through any cables. Happy days. Ive got other jobs coming up where this will come in very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bosch Truvo Brilliant product, use it all the time. One tip - I found I was getting a lot of false readings UNTIL I read the instructions and discovered it was static in the walls I was picking up. So if you get what appear to be false detections, place your free hand on the wall next to where you are scanning and that will earth away the static and you wont get any false readings!

Can this device to be used to detect central heating pipes under wooden floorboards?

Asked by: Max1977
Hi Max 1977, Thanks for your question. With the Truvo, it can detect ferrous metals up to 70mm and non-ferrous up to 60mm. It can work for walls, ceilings and floors, so it should work to detect heating piping under floorboards. Kind regards, Bosch
