Item Found: Other

Location: Alabama

Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0310)

White’s,

On December 22 I had an appointment to meet with a general building contractor in the Dothan Alabama area. He is in the process of developing a subdivision and was having trouble locating the boundary markers put down in the original survey. They were 2 ½ to 3 foot pieces of rebar driven into the ground.

Each time he called a surveyor to come locate them it cost him from $200.00 up to $800.00. He bought a Prizm III and before I left we had located 4 markers. He called the following Monday and said he had found 10 more markers. His purchase of the Prizm III saved him a minimum or $1000.00 the first day he used it. He still has over 20 lots to find the boundary markers for.

He also told me how pleased he was with it and that not only was he going to use it for his business but that he wanted to look around the house he lives in now, which is over 60 years old, to see what he can find with it.
