  • Sandi, the main thing to remember is to wash the detector thoroughly in fresh water after exposure to salt water. Salt destroys detectors, just like it destroys cars! I haven't worked saltwater myself (not a lot of it in Illinois), but my guess is that these detectors will do fine in dry sand, but not work well (if at all) in wet saltwater sand.

  • I would like to purchase a metal detector for my husband and since I listened to your video I will probably get the Tesoro Compadre. Since we go to the beach (saltwater) often I wonder how it would work close to where the waves wash up on the sand. He will be a newbie and I can't afford the underwater version. Thanks for any help and advice.
