Hey Al, Ive traced Romex with a detector up to 12 inches.
As far as pipe, it depends on the size of pipe. The bigger
the pipe in diameter the deeper you will hit on it.

Just recently I traced a 1" 3/4 galvanized pipe at about a foot deep
with my Pinpopinter at MAX sensitivity. The pipe was 2' 1/2 3' down.
I had to pop almost a foot of sod first for the pinpointer to go off.

My observation is to learn how the detector you own functions and responds.
