Will not show direction of a fault within a roll of netting. It will indicate direction if used between two rolls of netting. Why? Netting ends twist all the conductors of the net. If used in the center, the device will not be able to indicate the direction of the leak because of these twists. It can be used to determine the net in which the fault is located.
When the unit reads "LL" or "low batt," the battery on the tester (not the energizer's battery) is low and needs to be replaced.

Designed to be left in one place for months or years, but still easy to move if needed. It's sturdier than other nets with regular posts.$212.00

This tester is head and shoulders above every other tester I have used. It's easy to use, easy to read, very reliable. It does not need a ground! Prior to this the only reliable fence tester we had was my wife (who for some reason doesn't mind getting zapped) - at last she's got a break!

This thing is amazing. It pointed toward a fault where I knew there were too many weeds. I used a lot of Round-Up, and am eager to see what it says when they're dead and the bottom conductor runs clear. Forget the part of the instructions that says you have to insert the wire in the groove to find faults. I use rope conductors, which don't fit easily, and using the metal contact that sticks out the top works fine for detecting faults.

I lost the same fence tester I had in standing wheat so I went into the house within the hour and ordered another one. That is how good this tester(fault finder) is. I would not have electric fence and sheep without a tester like this one.

This tool has proven to be extremely helpful in pinpointing shorts in our electric fence. No longer do we have to walk every inch of fence in search of the source of the problem. We had considered getting this product years ago but didn't because of the price. It is worth the price! It is definately one of those prized time saving tools you're glad you have on the farm.
