    Refrigerant leak detection?

    I was just getting everybody's thoughts on refrigerant leak detectors. I've been in this business for 10 years without one, been pretty successful searching for leaks the "old fashion" way with soap bubbles. Are leak detectors worth the investment and what is a good brand/ model to get for the money? Thanks everybody for your input?

    You look and find leaks inside coils with bubbles. Seems like a long process. I love my h10 as well. I need a new recharge battery though.

    I highly recommend a leak detector. I can't imagine life without one. I've found many leaks in coils that would have been impossible with bubbles.

    In business for 10 years without a Leak Detector? Say it ain't so.

    I just bought a couple H-10PM's, I've used ZX1's for years. Hands down, H10.
    Yes, I know I Shouldn't But I Just Can't Help Myself...

    Used an H10 for years and it was great (don't suck up water though). Have been using the Fieldpiece SRL2K7 infrared for a while and its been good for me. Whichever one you get, it will pay for itself with the first evap coil you sell.

    Now you have it, this is the right combination. I use Big Blue more that my H10.

    who makes the H10 and what model is the best for 410A, ive seen them by Johnson and Bachrach? im having the worst time with my Fieldpiece srl8 for finding these damn blends? im over it, going to put it up for sale and get the best one made for 410a leak detection..


    btw i have had one i bought 15 yrs ago made by Mars in my garage collecting dust. I wonder if i by a new sensor and battery it maybe better than this FieldPOS LOL
