    All jokeing aside I would really like to see it, I feel like I understand CA to some extent but maybe not fully. I want to get Jim Davis to my area but have to talk to one of our suppliers.

    I also don't have a video camera so i dont know how well it will be. At the last i will have the video on the analyzer and you will just hear me in the background.

    I will underfire the furnace, overfire the furnace, and try to misalign a burner or make it not burn right.

    I did see one roughly 1/2 hour long on YouTube. Was that it?

    Just got the Bacharach Intech in the mail. Haven't been able to shove it in flues yet. Not impressed with the new probe assembly, does not have a probe stop, no extra filters, hoses don't use the metal ends like on the insight. It is made in the USA though.

    I guess thats what i get for not spending the extra couple $$$ on the insight.

    Can't believe the probe stop costs $52.00!! anyone have suggestions on what to use instead?

    Our company bought one of them too. I have used it a few times, and it seems like a decent meter. Fast response.

    Numbers are small and hard to read.

    I watched the video Jim B made. but he didn't show the probe or hose connections. lol

    i can't believe they really skimped me on a probe stop.

    Does anyone know if the testo probe stop is the same diameter as the intech probe?

    The new sample probe on the intech looks smaller.

    I'm also to lazy to go out and measure it.

    The testo probe stop is only $22. i think i can afford that

    I recommend drilling smaller holes. I never use a probe stop. I use to take them out of kits and put them in my desk because they get hot and are hard to cool down. Check with me and I may make a deal. Where did you get your Intech?

    Cotton balls and yarn make great filters and cost much less than filters. At least it is after the water trap and not before it, so it stays dry.

    Rubber hoses make much better connections than metal ones.

    Thanks for the input Jim.

    I got it from TTT

    I finally got to use it today

    2 RTU. one was burning good, in the 6%o2 range with 40ppm CO. but low flue temp. about 270* had 115,000input with 6tons of airflow.

    other rtu was over 2000ppm CO with pretty blue flames. low o2. burner plates infested with stinkbugs. probably millions of stinkbugs in the heat exchanger.

    I wish there was something out there that eats these damn bugs.
