Money well spent a real time saver
I took on a maintenance contract at an apartment complex they had irrigation problems 5 out of 6 solenoids valves were lost they didn't have prints and I couldn't find the valves so I purchased the pro 48 and I found them all within an hour.I cant say enough about what a handy tool it is and so simple to use .

Worked Perfectly
I'm a homeowner I had a zone that stopped working. I contacted a couple sprinkler companies and they wanted $200 just to diagnose and weren't available for five weeks. So I decided to troubleshoot this myself with this tool. This unit led me right to the break in the wire. I also had three zones where I could not locate the valves. This is a very useful tool.

Chatter function worked perfectly
Purchase a house that had one zone that would not work. Put the chatter on once and voila..it's working. Did not try the listening part and that was the reason I didn't give it 5 stars but I will soon.

Did Not Meet My Needs :(
I was really hoping to find valves. Unfortunately tried it on many different ones and could hear nothing. On one valve that we knew the location we could hear a very faint chatter as we were squatting down over the valve.

Unfortunately, because it did not serve the purpose that I purchased it for I give it the one star rating.

Works great for now
It's hard to give a rating when you have only had the product for a couple of days. It did everything I was expecting it to do and now I just hope that it is durable. I could have given it 5 stars because it works great, but how long it keeps performing is the question

how easy is this tool to use
A shopper on Mar 14, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I use this tool mainly to trace which wire is which without having to cut the wire and test it directly for voltage continuity. The Pro-48K sends a signal through the wire, connected at the Sprinkler Controler, and then I use the Tech Probe sensor to determine which wire within a group of wires out in the yard is the one I'm looking for. It works quite well if you can separate the wires at least an inch apart while testing with the sensor.

I have not used the solenoid chatter function, but I've heard from other sprinkler contractors that this also works well for its intended purpose. As a full-time sprinkler repair specialist, I am 100 percent satisfied with the quality and ease of use of the product.
Have a lost value that needs servicing. Have locator but values are located near where power,cable and phone enter home so I'm getting alot of interference. Was wondering has anyone used the chatter function and if it worked well.
Jason on Apr 17, 2011
BEST ANSWER: It does work well if the wire to the valve is not cut. The chatter is not real loud so it should be done on a calm day with little background noise. If the valve box is buried to deep you will not be able to hear the valve chatter. The solenoid activater will cause the valve to click off and on. The tool kit and probe also have many other useful features and I wouldnt do irrigation repairs without one.
