Dowsing don't work ,I had been digging an emergency septic system and the guy kept saying the phone line crossed the leech field and the insisted it was at an exact place in the yard every time he walked over this spot the rods would cross, HMMMM,so not to hurt his feelings I got my detector out and got no signal in the spot he was so sure it was in, surprise it was as I had known no line and this makes over a dozen times in the past the dowser was wrong !! So go pedal your dowsing story on a dowsing site  were like minded lunacy can run rapid .

Rudeness? I would never get rude with You unless you flamed me.   Here in NM, along the mtns you can find water any place from 30ft to 700ft.  Dowsers get out there and will tell you there is water HERE!  Yea there is but at $17 a foot a 700 FT well is more then most can handle.   I have never seen a person find anything that I could not have found by chance ever.  If you did enough holes in a football field your going to find something.  Dowsing is like a Religion, A Myth.  Your putting Faith in something that is simply NOT there.

Well at leasted its not as bad as P*$$*** in the wind.

I dont believe in it for treasure hunting because out of thousands of threads here there is still no Proof and the wild claimers always back down when it comes to doing back to back Tests,

About the most that can be said is that its ok if you just want to wonder around and taking a chance, Nothing beats a Good Detector and a load of research,

Hey guys, lighten up just a bit, OK?  I'm not a dowser, but in my life I've seen enough that I'm not going to discount something just because I don't understand it and can't find the scientific literature to explain it.   I've even known a few dowsers...most of whom were no more successful than you would expect from random chance.  But every once in a while, I come across a person or an event I can't automatically discount.  (Besides, I am NOT prepared to call Mrs BA either a liar or a charlatan.)

And as for whether dowsing belongs on a Treasure Hunting site or not, it has been a historical means of treasure hunting since way before there were metal detectors.   More importantly, Christian has allowed a spot for it on his website which we are all privileged to be able to use.   If folks want to discuss dowsing here, let them.  As long as they aren't blatantly seeking to defraud other members, let 'em be.   

If dowsing, isn't your thing, then just stick with the topics that are.

BA

That was my point!    There is NO Place on Earth that you will not find water if you dig deep enough.

I have seen it done to find water but I would put the sucess down to the fact water is a natural thing/element and the fact that water magnifies natural electricity hence why damp conditions favor Detecting so that could be why it works for Devining,

I'm not convinced about it working on man made items.

I dont have an issue with it being part of the forum, In fact I cant wait for the day that someone writes an epic adventure on here that will fuel our minds Because I just love happy endings,

We have seen and been part of many Verbal Air Strikes in the past but those times have usually been submitted by those for the purpose of financial gain
I dont see anyone being heavy handed here, But I always Note that some of us dont use as many words to get the point across which I DO SEE that it could be seen that way,

MiracleTracker:- You have a better chance of success of finding an answer just by giving it a go, who knows what the out come will be. we never stop learning here, theres always something new around the corner,

Thank you to those who are positive - or at least neutral - in your comments.  I don't know how it was construed that my original question was meant to try to sell people on dowsing equipment.  I am not interested in buying or selling.  I just wanted technical advice. 

As far as putting forth evidence of dowsing, there's a reason we don't.  It's because it is often met with ridicule and worse.  It doesn't matter to me if people don't believe it works.  We all find evidence to prove our beliefs.  I just don't understand why anyone would want to spend their time and energy jumping into conversations that obviously they have no interest in at all.

This is the dowsing forum isn't it? I find it very odd that non-believers would even look at this forum.  Shocked
I think they are just trying to flame the board. They should be banned.
I saw a dowser find a mason jar filled with gold coins buried inside a barn. The property owner had no idea
how it got there.
