Q: Why am I not getting full range anymore?
A: As with most electronics the stronger your battery life the more performance you will get out of it. So we recommend using fresh batteries for every locate.
Q: I am using a receiver other than Prototek and I am not getting the range that you advertise on your website. What is the deal?
A: Our receivers are very sensitive, they tend to pick up the signals a little better than others. All our ranges posted on our website are determined with our receivers. We can't guarantee what you will get with other brands of receivers.
Q: How would I push this large of a transmitter down the line?
A: We highly recommend use with a tractor camera. This is the easiest and safest way to put this large of a transmitter down the line. Some customers go as far as getting some PVC pipe and two encaps. This would be like a makeshift spring carrier and is a great way to protect your transmitter.
Q: Can I use this transmitter with my jetter?
A: Yes you can. There are a couple things to keep in mind. First, this is a very larger transmitter and we only recommend you use it with a jetter hose 2” and above. Second, make sure you securely tape it at least 4 feet behind the jetter head.
