Underground Utility Locator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product. Using the sonde feature, it saves a lot of time diagnosing problems with buried pipe. Saves time and aggravation with broken utility lines. Able to locate private lines and unmarked utility lines on job site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Locator The sr-20 is a great locator,but one that is tricky to use.Huge learning curve but if you can master it the benefits of this locator can save you a lot of time and headache.This locator gives you a lot of information,and heads up of other utilities around you.Great tool addition,especially if your a professional locator.It has simple features for novice locators,but a lot of features for pros.I would call this locator a true custom locator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from product works great After reading the instructions a few times and watching video, I have been able to locate lines...and depth with good results, unit does not get used often so batteries went bad after sitting a while, will not work on plastic lines with out a tracer wire. the unit comes in a nice protective case that holds everything tight and has room for extra batteries

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The SeekTech SR-20 performed as advertised. The SeekTech SR-20 coupled with the ST-510 Line Transmitter and Inductive Signal Clamp made locating underground utilities very reliable. A nice safety feature is it will alert you to additional live cables within the vicinity of the cable that you are trying to locate. The multiple frequency range is handy to pin point your utility. We also use this in conjunction with the SeeSnake camera sonde feature to verify clay drainage pipe routes as well. It takes a little know how and experience to learn how to use the SeekTech to its fullest potential due to all the things it is capable of doing. Overall a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to learn. This locator is pretty easy to learn and once you learn it easy to use. We have several locators and this is by far the preferred model. we have 8 at this time and will probably buy more soon. I recommend this if you are looking something that is easy to use and want to be able to expand your options with location of other utilities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great item We have tried different brands of line locators and this by far is my favorite unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding locator! I actually work for a lawn sprinkler company as a service technician. We routinely call 811 to have all the utilities located, but would still run into problems because the locations were never accurate. So I did some research, found the Sr-20 and tried it out. We haven't hit a utility since. If it wasn't the law to call 811 I wouldn't even bother with them. I start every job re-doing the mark-outs with my own. My marks are always directly on top of the utility. Even better then that is the SR-20 tells me exactly how deep it is. The time and energy this one piece of equipment has saved us is almost immeasurable! We also use it to locate sprinkler lines as well.. This is a fantastic piece of equipment and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely easy to use Best tool in the dept. follows the pipe camera or a clamped conductive line. The best part is locating 60hz electric lines with depth displayed without a physical or mechanical hook up. Worth every dollar
