    Leak Detection Tools.

    Ok guys im looking for your advice and mainly your experience.

    Today I was working on a roof, 120v not close by, looking for a refrigerant leak.

    I have the POS CPS Eliminator (the yellow one). The damn thing wound not stop ramping off all the place. No leaks in sight. SO now im through with this thing..

    I own the h-10G from your recommendations. However I want something portable.

    WHat do you guys think? I've been searching ultrasonic and the reviews are so mixed. What has your experience been? Also whats a good battery powered unit?
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?

    The H-10's were good in their day but technology is outdated now. I prefer the Infinicon leak detector now, pricey but reliable.

    Why not just get a H-10PM and a D-tek? From what I hear......money's no object for you and Nick.

    I'm a bit jealous of you guys.

    I would not go that far. I think it is safe to say I have a problem. Hell, The first step to recovery is admitting it right..

    But then again you have to want to change and well, Lets say Im not there yet lol..

    Nick is not all that happy with his inficon D tek and whatever you do, dont bring up the Pilot in front of him! THat why I'm not sure if I should go that route. Im replacing the last of the cheap tools I bought when I was starting out and this CPS is one of them.. So, CJ do you have an advice to offer or what? lol
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?

    It's very rare, I even bust out the leak detector. I'm normally can find the leak visually and verify location with bubbles.

    I had to bust out a detector twice this year. One was a YCAL that was low on one circuit. No visual. Detector(D-Tek) went off at relief valve. Long story short.....found out the chiller got hit with boiler water this last winter. Other was a Smardt chiller. Detector(H10-G) found fitting on barrel leaking.
