Questions & Answers

Asked by: Marty
Mine is a natural gas detector. It is battery powered. It found the leak in a very short time. for the price it saved me money also.

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.

Pen Style Natural Gas Detector is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 49.

My initial tests showed that it indicated presence of natural gas when I turned the gas on. No other alarms beeped when the gas was turned on, so I am assuming that it works and that I don't have any leaks in this house. I'll check out my mountain cabin when I go there and see if it is the same there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The unit only seems to respond to large natural gas... The unit only seems to respond to large natural gas leaks and does not seem to detect small leaks around fittings. I can smell some of these leaks, yet, the detector unit does not indicate any leak exists. I was looking for something that was more sensitive to small gas leaks.
