Did Tif sell the H10 also? Not sure I've seen one, but all the others are the same no matter whose name is on it. Bacharach, Yogagawa, Mars, Johnson Controls, etc. Do you have a link or a picture of the Tif H10?

If you are interested, I am picking up another H10G next week I will not need. I will check it out and make sure all is well with it. If so, I will sell it for $175 shipped. PM me if interested. If anyone else is interested, let me know. It is supposed to be in great shape and perfect working order and has the slightly larger "Mars" case, which is nice.

Sent from my cell phone so excuse all the spill convection mistakes.
What one generation tolerates, the next generation embraces.
Here you go. This was with a leak refference I borrored from another member. IMO I/R like the termite fart sniffer or inficon are hit or mis. For some reason you will get good results some days and not others at least that has been my experience with them. A heated type sensor is the way to go.

That's funny. I saw your video about two hours ago. Just messing around on you tube

Stared in this trade using H10, great detector, somewhat high learning curve. Also, it has no wand to reach into hard to get places, it's more like a pointer.
Had the dtek, waste of money, never worked right.
Next had the Zx-1. Great detector, only okay for CFC's. usually had to be significant in size. Parts were a pain to get for it and I think it's out of production. Is the ZX it's replacement?
Now I use SLR2. Once I figured out how to use it, have a much higher opinion of it. The con is the filter, must absolutely clean/moisture free or you'll have problems. Searching a wet coil takes some skill and care.
Overall though the H-10 is still the best ever made.
I don't know,any time I got a false alarm from a leak detector it is mostly on a freezer and with the door open,usually goes away with a closed door. I am thinking the air from outside is drawing inside due to the cold?
I had the zx1, I thought it as crap. I just traded it in for the ZX, ZX1 was still under warranty. I can only hope. I do have the UEI and it does a fair job. Haven't used either for 410 yet. Just haven't had any leaks. AND no this in not a complaint.

The Tif h10 is a piece of crap, dont waste your money on it.
I didn't like the zx-1 at all. Think it might have been a bad one. I now have the ZX. Hope I have better luck.

H-10 is nice is you have the available funds. I stick by my SRL8 [Fieldpiece] though. D-Tek is a good of equipment, but the SRL is making an impact. Affordability is the number one question.

Affordability is a combination of cost of the unit and its ability to do the job properly the first time.
My first boss out of trade school told me "I have tried them all - get the H-10" Then he showed me how the h-10 could be so sensitive that it can pick up a signal from the foam insulation in older cases. I have never trusted anything else.
