    So every now and then we do repairs on broken water lines so I decided I would buy a locator instead of paying someone everytime I need them. I picked up the Gen Ear leak locator last week, so far I have used it once on Friday and located a broken 2" PVC line that was 5' deep under 4" of asphalt and 12" of concrete base. It located it within a foot. I will let you know more about it the next time I use it.
