    JB leak detector

    Anyone used one yet??? I tried a google search and couldn't find anything so maybe it's not out yet.. I couldn't find it on the jb site ethier.

    But the supply house had a flyer on it. They said three bills for it..

    Only thing that looked kinda cool was it had a vibration mode which woild come in handy once and a while... They also said the sensor had like a 10 year life span... But I was told that with my d-tek selsect too and am now on the second sensor which works way better than the first sensor. No more false alarms when I move it real quick.

    Looks like they also have a new 4 valve manifold coming out with 1/4 turn valves on it.. pg 28

    At least it's made in the USA I guess.

    Sales rep from JB was at a counter day thing today. He had one of them there. It's warrantied for 2 years and that's it. They don't even warranty the sensor for more than that.
