Customer Questions & Answers

Steve Brown asked on 16/02/2021

Q : My primary use for this is to secure some squeaking floorboards. I know there will be pipes and cables under there. From what I understand this device will allow me to locate these through floorboards. Is my understanding correct?

TooledUp answered on 18/02/2021

A : Hi Steve, I asked Bosch for a bit more clarification on this, as it says it is suitable for use on flooring (which I'd assume would mean it would have to go through floorboards in most cases) but the user manual doesn't go into much detail. Their response is as follows: "Yes the Universal Detect will detect objects through wooden flooring as long as it is not foil-backed or metallic. The 25mm detection depth refers to the capability of the tool to find Wooden Studs though plasterboard (drywall) for example, in which case the Stud Work can be up to 25mm from the below the surface the product is scanning. As per the spec list, it will detect metal objects deeper than that depending on their nature i.e. ferrous or non-ferrous? up to a maximum depth of 100mm for solid iron (fe) and perhaps somewhat less for copper pipes say ~80mm. Live (unshielded) cables up to 50mm." Though they haven't mentioned this, from what I understand any plastic pipes carrying water may go undetected as they can be interpreted as wood, so bear this in mind if you think there could be any in the vicinity.
