I'm sure it wasn't a dousing rod

Just a moment ago, I was walking back to my desk and looked out the window. Outside were three men standing around near some part of the fire system -- A red pipe that sticks out of the ground near the street with a valve on it that has something to do with the sprinklers. I didn't get a picture, but one of the men was holding a piece of L shaped wire with one end down, and one end pointing away from him towards the stand.

I'll admit my first thought was along the lines of "why would someone be using a dousing rod to find the piping." Given that I believe that most dousers control the rods themselves (either deliberately or subconsciously) I couldn't believe that a maintainer would use such a tool
