    h 10pm leak detector 410a

    Can someone tell me what they do to use this detector for 410a. I think you adjust sensitivity??. I hate that its dead on for 22 but not so much for 410. Thanks

    Ive read that you set it to the small setting. Also may need to turn the heat up on the bottom a small amount. It should be in the instructions.. Mine are in the truck. I have not used mine for 410a. I have my POS D tek for that lol...
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?

    i have used mine a couple of times with success. As stated above you need to use the small setting and adjust the sensitivty until it detects it correctly. I usually do this by a slight cracking of my jug of refrigerant of on the hoses at my manifold. It seem to do reasonably well for me.

    doing this isn't "calibrating" anything.

    There is a special bottle with a calibrated "leak rate" that should be used.


    Yes, set the detector to small, set the heat correctly by using the calibration bottle and go.
