    ihan usual & having very good results. i found one in a line
    set about 2 inches behind the stucco & when we opened the
    wall the leak was within a couple inches of where we were hearing
    it the best. this leak was about 3 lb. a year on a 15 # charge
    system & had been leaking about 10 years.

    The tools forum is open to the non pro's as well. Even though it's in the pro section it is open to the public.

    Really what makes you say this. Have you A/B'd an H10 to anything else on the market?

    All Pro Areas should be closed to the general public. They do not use are tools. All we need is a tool with a bad review and the customer see us pull it out of our bag to use and BAM, he has formed an opinion. I vote to close it off to uneducated eyes. The site is growing and needs to be tweaked a bit.

    No one told you? There are no Rules for "Guests".

    The "Guests" junk has been Out Of Control this Summer. We have one Guest who posts a Question and Another Guest offers technical help.

    Wow, magic eyes!

    Buy the FP, looks like it can find a smaller leak, or at least is rated that way?

    Noooo, Experienced Eyes.

    As you can tell, I'm a Fluke guy but I use Tif ZX-1 detectors. I'll gladly put my ZX-1 up against the FP finding a One bubble leak. The Robinair might be OK but their Customer Service is POOR.

    You FP guys can't take any Joking.

    I just replaced my ZX-1 with the Robinair. The ZX-1 was pathetic at leaks and spent most of its time being shipped to the mfg for repair. I am not so sure of the Robinair, it is new, and I hope for the best.

    BTW I don't like FP meters, I use Fluke as well, but the only difference between the Robinair and the FP leak detector is the color of the case.

    but what about picking up 410-a leaks? what are you guys finding to work on the smaller leaks? my h-10 works wonderful on r-22 but 410-A it is questionable at times.
