I used this to insure there were no leaks on a new gas line install. It worked very well and gave me some peace of mind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marty It works like promised
I smelled gas in my house, but could not tell where it was coming from. Tried the old soap in a squirt bottle and still could not find the leak. I went on line to see if I could find something that would help and came across the General Company's "Gas Seeker". After reading mostly good reviews on the product, I thought I would give it a try.Simple and easy to use. Just push the button, let it warm up and simply pass it over your gas pipes and it will beep and show two different lights if it detects any gas. One light for a small slow leak and another for a larger leak. I found the first leak right away, so I kept checking more gas connections and found four more leaks!. It was money well spent and the price reasonable.

Tried the unit with my BBQ, no indication on the detector with one burner fully open. Opened the second burner and, by mistake ignited a large fireball, still no indication of propane on the detector.
Don't waste your money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by John Not so great
The unit did not work when I first placed the batteries in it . Then suddenly started working. Did not detect very small leaks. I had to resort to detection fluid

Do not buy this product, it's useless.
If I could give it no stars, I would, but minimum stars is 1. But it's really no stars.
What did I expect for 40 bucks? A good gas detector costs hundreds of dollars, not 40 dollars.
I have a slight natural gas leak in my place, I can smell it, but not sure which connection it's coming out of. Soap detected one leak at union fitting, I tightened it up good, no more bubbles, but still, I can smell slight whiff of natural gas from time to time.. I thought that this thing would work, but it didn't detect anything. So I thought I'd do a little test. I fired up my natural gas stove burners and blew out the flame. (You have abut 5 seconds before the stove determines that the flame is out and re-ignites.) Now pure natural gas is spewing out of the burners. Held the thing right in the gas stream and it did not detect anything. I can hear the natural gas flowing, I can smell the natural gas with my own nose 3 feet away, but this tool (so called) doesn't sound the alarm.
I repeated with an unlit plumbing torch. (So now propane). This time, it did detect it, but the amount of gas required to sound the alarm was huge. Slight amount of gas, (you can smell it, and a flame reveals that there is a small amount of propane flowing out) and it does not detect anything.
So don't waste your money and time on this thing. Especially if you are trying to find a slight leak. It's useless. I don't need an instrument to detect a major leak, I can do that myself with my own nose. I need it to detect very slight leaks and this thing does not do that. Not one bit.
