Rob Ellis: Metal Detector Expert…Call or text 703-598-1435

August 13, 2020: A couple of days ago, Eddie was playing in the water with his children. When he realized his ring was missing, he searched as well as possible. He soon realized he needed a waterproof metal detector. Eddie called the Woodbridge SCUBA Dive Shop to see if someone could conduct a search. Since no one was available to immediately help, my friends at Woodbridge SCUBA referred me to Eddie.

We were supposed to meet at 0800, but we were both 15 minutes early. It was raining very hard the whole time and I was watching for approaching lightning. After Eddie showed me the potential areas the ring could have fallen off, I started the search. Something made me go just a little further out for my first leg of the pattern. Within a few minutes, I heard that lovely tone of gold and recovered Eddie’s wedding band. By this time Eddie’s wife had arrived and they were both there when I handed over the ring. It was then that they told me that tomorrow was their anniversary!! We were all soaking wet, but full of warm feelings.  I love this hobby!!!!

    I knew I needed a metal detector, I didn’t know I needed a new friend who was so adept at finding lost things in murky water and sandy lake bottoms! Thanks doesn’t even cover it Rob! As I said in the rain – I didn’t have enough money for the what the ring means to my wife and I. Thanks again!

    P.S. – I also didn’t know you would find it in less than 5 minutes!

    Thank again for the referral. It’s great to see business coming back.

    For anyone interested in learning the skills to do your own underwater metal detecting, I highly recommend the Woodbridge SCUBA diving shop.
