Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain! A must have tool Super easy to use for any novice DIYer and a must have for any tool kit, you can't go wrong with this bit of kit and the price is affordable too. Used it straight out of the tin box, batteries also included. Well impressed with my tool box addition.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Bought this even after reading reviews warning not to. I should have listened. Chipboard floor squeaking, wanted to put screws in to help. Not sure where pipes were so got this detector. Follow instructions. Absolutely waste of time. Warning indication for electrical wires, where I know there are none. No indication of pipes where I know there are some. So no confidence in this product whatsoever. On its way back to the shop. Safe your time, do not buy this item.

Will this detect steel tie wires in a cavity wall- there may be a gap between the bottom of the detector and the sand and cement joints inbetween the bricks

Intend using to locate possibly rusted tie wires in a cavity wall where the joints are recessed
Asked by: Tom1833
Hi, Tom1833. As long as the wires are less than 70mm deep then you should have no porblems. Thanks, Bosch.

I keep getting false positives, how can I resolve this?

On walls (plaster on brick) in areas I know no metal or live wires gives red light / flash red and beeps. Similarly on ceiling. Has new batteries, has been allowed to warm up and is stored in its tin. Same for other half too. Help needed.

Plaster board- "scannable?"

Hi there. There appear to be conflicting answers as to whether or not this device will scan plaster board - some answers say yes fine, but there is one that says it will not scan through plaster board. Please could you clarify? Hope ok and many thanks.
