Pen Style Natural Gas Detector is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good product Good investment to have if you are using propane gas.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't work 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 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from able to detect large leaks only This detector is easy to use and detects large leaks. For example, if you turn on a kitchen gas burner and don't light it, you can hold the detector over the gas flow and it will detect the gas. Of course you can also easily smell the gas since the gas company adds an odor. I was trying to find a small leak due to a loose pipe fitting. I could get a whiff of the smell of the gas but couldn't be sure which joint was leaking. Unfortunately, my nose is more sensitive than this detector so it didn't help me. Ultimately, a more expensive detector was able to detect this small leak. So this product is useful only if you are seeking leaks of a certain magnitude. Since natural gas in my community has the odor added to it, I didn't find this detector helpful and I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to its claims! I had a leak at my sons townhome in the gas line feeding the furnace. Even the highly paid house inspector with a high end gas "sniffer" said that the smell was due to the furnace belching upon startup and the furnace room should have better venting. I didn't believe him and purchased this unit and, behold, found the leak. After two hours of draining water heater and moving some plumbing to get to the leak, problem solved! The house inspector, if he had done his job, should have recommended this be fixed PROIR to us purchacing this townhome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pen Style Natural Gas Detector If you fall into the category of amateur home-repair person, or just want something that is better than soapy-water, this is the device to have. This no-frills gas detector will provide you an ease of mind, as it does exactly what it is supposed to do. After having the detector delivered, I immediately went to my shop and tested the sensitivity of the product. It has two different levels that are displayed through a yellow and red LED light, along with two- different sounds that correspond to the light color. If you are looking for something that will provide the exact amount of explosive gas in the air – this is not the product. Save your $50 dollars and put it toward one of the $200 - $300 testers. However, if you want something to have in your toolbox that will give you peace of mind – this is for you. And besides – it is made in the good ol’ USA!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and Useful Tool I had a very small natural gas leak in my basement above the suspended ceiling. I could smell the gas, but the use of a liquid detector fluid was of no help. The chemical the gas company puts into natural gas can be detected very easily by your nose, way before any explosion can take place, so the leak must have been very small. I started looking for some type of electronic gas detector and was expecting to pay a hundred dollars or more. I then came across the General Tools Gas Detector. I ordered it and used the detector to check each pipe joint, and soon discovered a very, very small leak coming from one side of a joint. Repaired the joint and now no leak. The only negative is that since this is a passive unit (no sucking of air into the unit), it is a little slow in detection, but for the cost it was well worth it since non-passive units cost hundreds of dollars. Will use on all my gas line repairs so there will be no surprises.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pen style natural gas detector We just converted from propane to natural gas and were smelling a 'gas' odor so we ordered this pen style gas detector. It works great, we detected a small leak and were able to fix it without calling for help. It is good to have around for any future problems. We are very pleased with the quality.
