This is nothing extraordinary for plumbers who do slab leaks. But I posted it for those plumbers up North where there are a lot of basements and those plumbers don't get to see slab leaks.

Another company {ALD} did the locate and then I got called out to do the repair. I was just double-checking the locate with my equipment. On occasion, and it isn't often, but it has happened, I'll go out where someone else did the locate and they are way, way off.


One time I show up with my jackhammer to break the slab. I break open the slab where the elec. leak detection technician marked the floor. Not only was there no leak where he marked, but there weren't even any pipes!...... So, I made a hole in someone's concrete floor in the middle of their living room for nothing.

Even the oldest monitors from any brand that don't have the lug spot to connect you just wrapped the monitor to camera connection cable like 4 wraps around your fist and can use the current clamp from any transmitter and the same thing will happen

I don't know about you guys and what you have for equipment but let me tell you something important. I have the ridgid seesnake cs6 pak 100' camera. I also have the yellow ridgid locator with 4 antennae that comes with the transmitter pack and inductive clamp.


When I connect the transmitter to the antenna lug on the back of the camera it freaks out and crashes and I have to take out the battery to restart it.


I haven't tried the inductive clamp but at this point I am not willing too.
