A while back CK visiting me and did water divining at my place. Over the weekend I thought I give it a go. To my surprise the rods moved as I walked. CK marked a couple spots where he said shows the best water flows. The rods I used crossed when I am over the same spots. Really quite amazing. Has anyone tried this? There are times when the rods point in opposite directions. I have no idea what that meant. Anyone with ideas of how to use this technique properly? Any way of telling how much water and how far underground it is? I would like to eventually put in a solar power bore pump.

Me too chooky. A solar bore pump would be great at my place. We are totally reliant on rain water tanks. We had a diviner come in and locate a potential site. We paid $1000 for earthworks but found nothing. Very disappointing. I haven't given up though because we really do need another water source.
I can't answer those two questions as I am still working that out the closest I have got is working out depths but it is still only an estimate . I have no idea how to tell flow , but have started useing 5/8 rod to stop the small streams from being picked up .
I can make the the rods move or they move on there own but that`s about it I would love to know how you tell how deep it is i was told that if you hold an old style penny /coin in your mouth some can taste the salt or fresh water as they go this is a great art form alas all the oldies have it tucked away just got to find one see if they will part with it all
It would have been Kevin Hietman I know him , he also claims he can see grids in the ground. The way I work out depth is find the stream , you should get the two edges plus the centre then walk backwards and get another pull mark that .keep walking backwards and get a final pull and mark that those outer ones are what I use to work out the depth to the top and bottom of the stream I measure each to the centre mark and add 10% and is as close as I can get for the depths. I was told if you don't get the outer pulls it is not water.

We live in the hills of Ferguson Valley, lots of rock. A diviner apparently found good quality water but the digger didn't find anything. Maybe too deep? CK do you know how to tell if a stream is constant or if it dries up in summer, ie if I divined the area in winter and the rods indicated water would that change if the stream slowed down or stopped? Just asking because I would like to install a bore but the experts tell me not to bother, no-one in the area has done it successfully. We have had 100 days without rain and at this stage it looks like I'm going to have to buy a truckload to get us through in the house but I'm going to lose all of my fruit trees and veges. Feeling very worried at the moment
if it is a tad salty you have to put in a desalination unit the cost is about $ 3,000 I will try to find the web site and post it what it dose is to break down the salt to a usable size around 4 microns then all the plants can use it this is the way i will be going if I get salty water I looked into it a while ago and the turf farm in Wanneroo uses one called them to get feedback they were very happy with what they had
it sure can effect the flow , I always try to do it in summer when it is dry any flowing water gives of EMF's sitting water only gives small amounts and are near impossible to locate. so if you have had a big rain event you need to wait at least a week or two for it to stop moving. with the freshness I did try using a 20 or 50 cent coin in the mouth if it is fresh the rods won't work but if its salty you will still get a pull. also for a good flow you want to see how far back and forward the streams go if it ends close the flow reserve is not great . I forgot to mention they can shift or dry up with earth quakes and tremors too.
