hi there

I dont know how it works ... all I know is that it does lol

back in the 70's thro to the end of the '80's I worked for a telecommunications company
I used to with ease be able to find buried telephone cables that were 2 - 3 ft deep. using the exact same methods as in your video link using either a single piece of "L" shaped copper wire or even 2 of them, it didnt really matter.
It NEVER failed, the cable was always where located. A number of my fellow workmates would/could also do the same.

I have never seen a scientific explanation, I dont even know if there is one ?

This is sorta a borderline subject on this forum ... lets just wait and see what the moderators have to say :)

cheers
Dave

I'm pretty sure it's entirely bogus. You might have a better chance at finding water by putting a compass under a pyramid covered with q bracelets.

I'll quote you wikipedia for what that's worth:
Dowsing appears to have arisen in the context of Renaissance magic in Germany, and it remains popular among believers in Forteana or radiesthesia[5] although there is no accepted scientific rationale behind the concept and no scientific evidence that it is effective.
Personally, I would think that if such a thing were possible, someone would have proven why it works by now, or, at least proven that it does work.
