You can make your own rods. They must be clean, that is not painted or galvanised. In the natural state they will find "cavities" underground, such as hidden drains,etc. But they will detect other things, such as metals. For this you would need to hold bits of the metal you are looking for in each hand, touching the rod. Just holding the rods in their natural state they will detect water,no problem! Hazel twigs also work very well.
