Q: I am using a receiver other than Prototek and I am not getting the range that you advertise on your website. What is the deal?
A: Our receivers are very sensitive, they tend to pick up the signals a little better than others. All our ranges posted on our website are determined with our receivers. We can't guarantee what you will get with other brands of receivers.
Q: Will the FTP-8 work in cast iron?
Q: Can I use the flushable transmitters on the end of a sewer machine or push rod?
A: We do not recommend it. Using the flushable transmitters in this way will void any warranty.
Q: Do the flushable transmitters float?
A: Yes they do.
Q: What receiver do you recommend for use with the FTP-8’s?
A: We recommend the Ferris Analog Receiver and both of our LineFinder digital receivers. It just depends on how much you want to spend and what type of locating you are doing.
Q: How do I calculate depth?
A: To calculate depth you will take the distance between your front and back nulls and then multiple by .7. An example would be if you measured 50 inches between your front and back nulls then you would multiply 50 x .7 = 35 inches.
Q: Do the flushable transmitters fit in a spring carrier?
A: No. They are too wide. Our FD-10, FD-20 and HD-40 DuraSondes fit in all our spring carriers.
