Product Overview

  • Formulated to detect even small leaks in piping applications
  • Works between 55 and 160 degrees F, ideal for refrigeration lines
  • Safe and non-toxic - won't corrode pipes when used as directed
The Oatey 8 oz. All-Purpose Leak Detector is designed to form large bubbles to indicate even the smallest leaks in many types of piping applications. Detects leaks quickly on all types of tubing, valves, cylinders, pressure tanks or other systems under air, gas or oxygen pressure. Functions in -55 Degree F to 160 Degree F temperature range, making it great for refrigeration lines. Leak detectors are formulated to be used on the specific materials used in plumbing and won't corrode or degrade the pipe if you don't wipe the solution off after checking for leaks. The surfactants and builders in soaps can leave a corrosive residue on the pipe after you're done checking for leaks. This can cause discoloration and in rare occasions small pinhole leaks depending on the temperature and the material being run through the pipes.
  • High-viscosity formula clings to vertical surfaces
  • Designed for use with all types of tubing, valves, cylinders, pressure tanks and other systems under air, gas and oxygen pressure
  • Can be used in a temperature range from 55 Degrees F to 160 Degrees F
  • Produces large, long-lasting bubbles to indicate leaks
  • Slow evaporation rate provides long inspection times for leak detection
  • Non-toxic

No. This product will detect any non-liquid leaks only. We won't have a recommendation for this application.

if you spray this leak detector on the pipe joints they will bubble wherever the leak is located.

In some applications that may be. But when used with bottled and pressurized gases, it is NOT correct. Industrial safety classes teach that oil or anything with oil in it is dangerous around pressurized oxygen. And since most soaps contain petroleum hydrocarbons, soaps are not to be used to check leaks at oxy/fuel connections. Also, regular soap can be corrosive to certain metals and doesn't have the ability to stay put where it's applied like these leak detector fluids.

If you have been around the shop a few times, you are probably aware that you can mix dish soap with water to make a pretty decent leak detector. Well, been there, done that. I just finished two projects at the house using the Oatey leak detector. The stuff worked great! I replaced my electric cooktop with a gas cooktop. I had to check several gas connections. This is very convenient for the tight spaces. I also ran black pipe air line in my shop. Again, already mixed and ready for the job. No hassle, no mess. It did it’s job as expected.

I use this to check the piping of my propane system and the compressed air system in my shop. Other people have said that you can use dish detergent and water instead of a commercial product. While that is true, who wants to mix up a batch of homemade stuff when you can keep this around and just grab it and use it when you need to check a pipe fitting? This Oatey stuff works fine and the brush makes it easy and quick to apply. What more do you need from a leak detector?

As a Hardscape contractor we build a lot of gas fire places and fire pits We use yellow Poly pipe from 1" to 2" and galvanize pipe to connect to fire rings an valves, Oatey all purpose leak detector works great with the Poly pipe mechanical fittings and butt fusion connections, Work great with Galvanize pipe fittings and brass valves, Clings well to vertical pipes, easy to whip off clean no worries of corrosive residue left behind

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looking for a leak bought this to find a leak in a stainless steel airline at the compression fittings. The small bubbles were hard to see but it located a leak even though it was only 15 degrees outside.

I saw the bad reviews on this product but thought I would get it anyways because I know I have a leak in our AC somewhere and thought I had a gas leak somewhere in our furnace room. I had an AC repair guy come out and he was using this stuff on the AC leak. We (he) didn't find that leak yet but that's a big system with hundreds potential leaks anywhere and you would have to put this right on the leak. But I thought I would check for the gas leak. I put the liquid around the 20-30 black pipe joints in our furnace room. And it actually showed up a leak in one joint. Like the pro said you would expect to see "crawling bubbles". And on the leaky joint little bubbles would keep forming. And even after minutes there were still bubbles forming. I know that wouldn't have been the case with soapy water (and soapy water isn't great to put on iron pipes). And I'm feeling pretty confident that if there were other leaks they would have bubbled even though it looks like the liquid basically runs off right after you put it on. So, I'm pleased with the product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems fine, as advertised I think we all understand that we can mix a little dish soap and water to use as a substitute for this product. What mystifies me is why, given this widely known option, folks complain that there is no dramatic difference using this product. Did anyone really think that there would be? I've just returned from buying a bottle of this product from Home Depot (and yes, I had already read the reviews here). Oatey makes some specific claims for the product: non-corrosive, little or no residue, viability over a specific temperature range, an (implied) reduced evaporation rate, and compatibility with a range of piping and gases. Not all of these necessarily differentiate it from dish soap/H2O, children's bubble liquid, etc.,. True or not, some of these claims could be hard to validate outside of a laboratory. I was motivated to purchase this product for a entirely different reason. Convenience. I have neither the time nor inclination to go play at kitchen chemistry every time I need to check a leak. I can toss this in my tool kit, and when I need it, it is there. I hope that the corrosion and residue claims are correct. They would be a plus. But the time I would spend interrupting my troubleshooting process and mixing my own is worth more than the $4.50 I paid at my local Home Depot. If you don't agree, don't buy it. But don't buy it knowing it is a high priced bottle of fancy bubbles, and then complain about it like it ate a hole through the floor and killed the cat. Silly. Whining. It works. It is no doubt very profitable. It will not restore your thinning hair or attract the opposite gender. Deal with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No better than soap and water The HD sales associates told me they no longer stock this in stores. I finally bought the last one on the shelf after searching three store locations. I am greatly disappointed with the effectiveness of this product. The description reads "high-viscosity formula" clings to vertical surfaces. The sales video also demonstrates how thick the liquid should be. The bottle I purchased was merely soapy water. Shaking the bottle doesn't help either as there is no sediment to mix. I paid $7 for a bottle of soapy water I could have mixed myself at home for free. Needless to say it didn't help find my gas leak. If you find it at a HD store, don't bother buying it.
