    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
    i hate that darn thing, pos imo. As far as the leak detector it has worked, my main gripe with it is the battery, absolutely horrible, every time i take it out its dead!!! but it has found a leak or two that was unable to be found with other leak detectors, including your CPS....
    I dont install leaks, i just fix em

    Maybe I'll look into that fieldpiece slr2. Mechacc made a few videos with it. Looks like it does a fine job. There was just something about standing 5' away from the unit and finding the leak that was appealing to me!
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    Where is all the stuff MADE IN THE USA?

    You got anything to trade for a SRL2 Pascone10
    My high light is broke but other than that it works like it is supposed to.
    I only use it when the ZX-1 battery goes dead.

    Hmm not really. Just starting out with tools. Not much on the extra side o things. Doesn't the zx1 drive you crazy when you bump the probe? What's your suggestion for a good detector?

    What I liked about the zx it would Pick up leaks far away.I would than switch to my other dectectors to home in.I always bring all I got on a job,to help find the leak,and to see which one does better on any given job,and to know they are all still up to snuff.

    Standing away i was refeering to the Ultrasonic. I didn't seethe zx do that in your video. When you were comparing the FP and the ZX1 that looked similar to me. What say you. If anyone's opinion counts it's yours! Thanks.

    The ZX-1 5 feet away was the first time I used it (no video) on a Trane residential condenser. Had to get right up next to the case with D-Tek Select. Both were set on high sensitivity.

    When that happens to me something is dirty.....tip, filter, wand
    The ZX-1 has been great for me.
    The SRL8 is also very nice
    I wouldn't buy the SRL2 again for the extra cost.

    Nice! Let me know what you think. I Have not used it at work yet. Some guys apparently don't use micron gauges lol..

    So do I go Infrared leak detector or something else. I have that H10..
    Or should I look at Ultrasonic.

    Im almost looking sleep on what way to go.. Well not really but it sounded good.
