And I just looked closer.

im not interested in buying off ebay. had too many bad experiences and its too much of a risk
Hey jp, I assume ur toughts are the same for the h10g?
As a matter of fact, I've got one of them in the truck, too.
Top of the line detector. Only problem is, dragging a cord to leak check large areas.
What detectors do the Lead Tech and Boss have?

Personally I wouldn't get an ultrasonic or I/R detector as a primary unit.

Of course, I'd welcome an open and forthright discussion with them regarding IR vs heated sensor technology in light of the leaks that I've documented here recently.
The Whisper is garbage, inficon reps would tell that is no designed to pick small refrigerant leaks, if you hear the leak the whisper will pick it.

by the way if you change your mind about inficon I put my dtek select for sale, its only 4 years old and work as good as new.
I spoke to an Inficon customer service rep who told me that the Whisper should not be used as your primary leak detector. You may want to try calling again and talking to a different rep, explain the situation from beginning to end, you purchased a leak detector as your primary leak detector and it doesn't work for what you needed to. They may help you out. They helped me out after my leak detector was stolen.
After all, you already spent the money, what's the harm in trying another phone call? And for the record my DTek select works very well, I have found countless leaks with it. Only issue with it is the extremely short battery life.
PRIMARY LEAK DETECTOR//?????????
You're supposed to buy one good one and one crappy one?
Dude, that made no sense.
I have an H10 also and I also use a halide.
Inficon customer service is EXTREMELY good at least it was for me I bought my first d-tek select many years ago and it worked great for about 3 years than started acting crazy going off on any and everything.. So I called inficon and it was out of warranty Sooo what did they do??? They sent me a new one and walked me through fixing the old one.. I am currently still using the old one and have used the new one maybe once or twice!
That is the definition of customer service! Inficon gets 100% rating on customer service from me
And as for picking up leaks it works close to flawless! But I still wanna h10pm
What cant be done correctly shouldn't be done at all
Dtek is next to worthless picking up trace refrigerant with nitro vs H-10 will be all over it.
mine is an old GE version of H-10b. made by same folks with GE label
kinda of a pain dragging a cord around, but worth it.
I'd take a chance on a used H-10 for $100... just have the seller guarantee it with a few days right to return if you can't get it working. H-10 are pretty durable, so odds are in your favor.
I am like JP Smith. I have been using H-10s since 1972 and i have found any as reliable. And i tried several other brands. Halide torch works good in non windy, shady places. BTW i feel like the corded ones beat batter powered. Not on a case by case basis but day in day out.
The H-10 was my first, and will be the only, leak detector. If something happens to it - I'm buying another one.
BTW, nacoomer, I have a few mouths to feed also - and IMO the best tools help tremendously in that area.
