Re: False reads?
Depth is usually based on coin size objects . The bigger the metal , the deeper it will be detected to within reason .
The best way to test your nmew detector is to plant a Test Garden . Place object you hope to find in a row 4-5 inch deep and separated as to not interfere with the next object in the row . Make sure some of your Test items include a pull tab , aluminum foil , coin on edge , ring and for fun bury a metal pop can down 12 inches or so . Now , wet the row down well to settle the soil and try your testing in a couple days . Almost forgot ! Make VERY SURE the area of the Test Row is CLEAR of ANY metal objects BEFORE you plant your targets . Best of luck to you .
