PRO290 Mini Underground Wire Locator

This unique underground wire tracer consists of a transmitter and an easy-to-use handheld receiver.  The Pro290 utilizes an easy-to-track 33khz frequency and a null reception mode. But the best part is that it sets up in less than a minute! Simply connect the Pro290 alligator clip to the wire to be tracked and the other alligator clip to the ground stake in the dirt, get a good ground indication, and track the beeps with the handheld receiver.

With a price you can't beat.

The Pro290 Mini Underground Wire Locator is the perfect tool for contractors working with landscape lighting, invisible pet fencing or any general wiring, including telephone or CATV.

Great for Dog Fences
Simple and not expensive. Dog fences and breaks are easy to locate. Pretty shallow wires.

Great buried wire detector.
Worked great. I was able to locate my entire buried power lines over a hundred feet from my well to my house. Null detection worker beautifully. Great buy!

A little bit disappointed, was expecting much better results. I was unable to find video on the 290 model; but I did find the 300. The 290 doesn’t come close to the results that I saw on the 300. Maybe operating error.

I can't find the boxes to my sprinkler system since it was installed years ago by a previous owner and contractor that is no longer in business.

Will the 290 find underground sprinkler valves as well as the pro 300, in a 400 ft. area?
Mac W on May 9, 2012
BEST ANSWER: No. The Pro300 is designed to find wire and valves using a very low 2Khz signal, a requirement for valve locating, at least easy valve locating. The Pro290 uses a higher 33khz signal and will track wire effectively but not so much valves. If it is valves you are looking for, take the Pro300.
Can it be used for locating broken sprinkler system wires?
Jay H on Oct 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I have also used this device to locate and trace a copper water line. I believe it can track any metallic item. This device does what $2000 devices do!
Can i trace and find broken irigation wire with the pro 290?
Emilio on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are talking about a yard irrigation system with wires buried up to 4 ft then yes. That is how I used it. It takes a little practice. If you are talking about a agricultural system I would also say yes but the depth of the wire could be to deep. I have not tried it yet, but plan to.
Since the pro 290 tracks wires, if the designated wire stops at the valve didn't you just locate the valve? The reason I am asking is that my system has single wire going to each valve, so hence when the tone ends would it be at the valve?
Grady S on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If the signal stops it usually means that the wire stops or is cut. IF it was a valve then the wire would terminate at the valve. You should be able to see the valve. We use it for locating landscape cable but is that be the same.
Hope this helps
