Underwater research: detecting in fresh and salt water

Tired of the usual search between sand, stones and barren land?

With the arrival of the summer season the desire for summer reigns and for lovers of detecting open new fun opportunities to practice their hobby at the

or in the charming bed of a river.

The search in water is one of the most fun because, in addition to giving the most satisfying satisfactions, it guarantees a healthy physical activity and a regenerating opportunity to relax.

Detectorshop experts recommend using guaranteed underwater models up to 3-5 meters deep, so as to avoid the risk of an accidental fall (which could cause technical damage) and to allow an exploration of the seabed also by diving completely.

Freshwater Search

It’s the easiest variant because, in the absence of saline mineralization, the performance of our metal detectors is even higher.

Also in this case, the advice is to use completely waterproof models to avoid that, in case of accidental immersion, they can be damaged.

Search in salt water

To practice detecting in a marine environment

  • beach
  • shoreline
  • light immersion
we will need a car with precise requirements, first of all able to withstand without problems the salt and sea water.

In addition, the metal detector must remain stable even in the presence of saline mineralization (which, in some cases, can generate "false" signals or render unusable an unsuitable detector).

In this regard, the best models are those with simultaneous multi-frequency that, in these research contexts, offer the most advanced and reliable performance.

Alternatively, for the most demanding situations, those in which the salt mineralization is added to the iron of the black sands, the experts of Detectorshop recommend the use of models with Pulse Induction technology, the only one able to have excellent performance in the most extreme conditions.
