    h10 styles

    Is the h10pm easier to use than the h10 p which I think is the one I have. It's the old 115b plug in style and you have to dial it in and very hard to get set right on small setting.

    I also have been having a hard time finding small leaks with my H-10. I am looking at the Fieldpiece infrared SRL2K7. I dont know anything adout it but it uses a different technology.

    I've had a hard time getting used to my fieldpiece.

    I don't have a lot of experience with R410a in particular, but I've found a LOT of 402a and 404a leaks along with 134a, 407a, 507 and other HFCs.
    The H-10 works great on R12, R22, and R134a.

    Some of the 400 blends have 134a in them.... R410a does not.

    The H-10 does well on 400 blends that have 134a in them.

    From my experience, it does not do well with R410a.

    From my experience, the new IR detectors work amazingly well on R410a. They are extremely sensitive and very consistent.

    I have had good results with both the Fieldpiece SRL2K7 and the D-Tek Select.

    Just my two cents.

    The new IR detectors take a little time getting used to... Especially if you have been using a heated diode detector for a long while.

    I was a little frustrated at first but I read the manual and followed it precisely. After a few weeks, I was getting better and better with it. Now it is like riding a bike.

    As a big cheerleader for H10G, we have had issues with 410a. I just got the Fieldpiece SRL2K7 and have yet to use it on an HFC, but it worked well on 22. It is going to take time to get used to constant movement and not trying to pinpoint a leak by leaving it stationary, it will recalibrate and not go off.

    Not that I have done this, but a squirt of 22 into a 410a system makes leak testing MUCH better with the H10G.

    I have had a harder time with 404 than 410 I love my h 10 never had problems finding leaks but time of problems with the d tek. I didn't like the fieldpiece that a co worker had but i havrny had much luck with any fieldpiece products. They make tons of diffrent ones it just comrs doen to what works best for you. We all do yhings a lurked diffrent so what works for one may not work for another

    150 for a h-10 is a great price. I paid much more than that. If its used I would reccomend you send it to be refurbished. It costs like 100 bucks. One thing I didn't know for a long time is on the bottom of it there is a sensitivity setting I turn mine to highest setting
