Questions & Answers

How close will you have to be to the leak to be detected by the device? And is it durable?

Asked by: Chris
You do have to be fairly close when checking gas lines, this is sensitive enough to pinpoint exactly which fitting is leaking. Marvelous tool and very durable, although I keep mine in the box......could not be happier with this purchase. I have a very old house with many closed off old gas lines, and I check them frequently.

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 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.
