Product Overview

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 degree F to 160 degree F
  • Produces large, long-lasting bubbles to indicate leaks
  • Slow evaporation rate provides long inspection times for leak detection
  • Non-toxic

Great Basic Checkerq
Had to replace my water heater and wanted to make sure there was no leaks. Bubble test was as simple as it gets. It was effective, but I though it would be bubblier.

    No LEAKS!
    I have used this leak detector for the past 3 years and have been very pleased with it. It's easy to apply since it has the brush inside of it and it's ready to use. I do not have anything to dislike about this product. It worked well when I installed my new gas range. This product did meet my expectations. Please hit the thumbs up if this was helpful.

      Works properly
      Recently used when hooking up gas to water heater. The only issue I had with this product was getting bubbles when applying it to connections(picture), but that happens with any blue leak solution I have used. Immediate leak detection so a couple applications and staring at pipe for a while to make sure no new bubbles formed worked for me.

        It works but.............. it does produce some bubbles when air is leaking, but the bubbles are small and do not last very long, so it is hard to tell if you have a leak which it the whole point of using it. I compared it to a couple of ounces of dish soap in a quart of water and that was much better for finding leaks (as can be seen in the pictures) one of the good points of this leak detector vs water and soap is that it can be used down to -55 degrees. It comes with a decent applicator in the bottle which is good, It can also be used in a spray bottle for easier application. If it made more or better bubbles I would have given it a 5 star but they are just to small and short lived to be much use.

        Thank you for the review. Please keep in mind that dish soap has corrosive properties to certain pipe materials, so it shouldn't be used as a leak detector. Sorry that you had issues with this product, please always feel free to reach out to our customer service team,we're always here to help! 800-321-9532
        Thanks again

        The first time I used this product. It did help me detect a gas leak for my water heater gas connection where I need to tight it more. Only draw back is that it has lot of bubbles at time apply. Anyway it is easy to tell the leak by looking for growing bubbles, not those stable bubbles.

        Won't work for small leaks
        We bought this liquid solution and an electric gas detector. We had a small leak, the solution does not work, but the detector works.
