      Q:Will this detect a leak at the tank outside?
      by|Jun 8, 2023

      Answer This Question

      A:  As the person above said, in windy conditions you will find it more difficult to detect a reading as the diffusion of the gas will be much faster. Be sure to get as close as possible to the source and so long as the concentration is above (20±5)% LEL, which translates to about 10,000ppm of methane, 4,200ppm of propane, and 3,600ppm of butane. More information can be found here https://www.wermac.org/safety/safety_what_is_lel_and_uel.html .The units can detect gas under these concentrations, but the unit will only initially alarm when (20±5)% LEL is reached.

      by|Jun 12, 2023

        A:  I would say yes, But I'm not shore how good it will work if it is very windy, The closer you put it to the source the better it will work out side. I can say it defiantly pick up the odder of natural gas. This unit will work for Minimum detection 200 PPM / There are other that (THD) sale that are Minimum detection 5 PPM But that one is about 232.00.

            Does not work
            Lights worked saying it's operating normal but it wasn't detecting gas leaks. I bought a cheaper model that worked fine.

              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.

              My neighbor and I each used it to check our house/furnace/water heaters. It did not indicate any leak. (Hopefully the device is working as it is supposed to (LOL)).

                  It did detect Natural gas but it wasn’t instantaneous. To test I turned the gas on to one of the burners on my range. I could smell gas instantly but it took approximately 20 sec to be detected.
