    My last 410 leak was small.
    My ZX-1 found it.
    My SRL2 did not trigger.
    I like the F/P unit as back up when my ZX-1 battery goes dead though.

    Questions to the folks having troubles with their detectors.

    How often do you change tip filters?

    Do you check, and in the case of the H-10 calibrate, your detector against a reference leak?

    Do you allow the sensor to clear out before turning it off?

    There's my .02
    I have a 11 year old Fieldpiece HS26 "stick" meter. It has spent it's entire life in my tool bag, in the rain, snow, temp from 0 degrees up to 130. It is used several times a day and I never had an issue with it. Not once. I have also used a SC76 for 5 years without any issues.

    Try the SRL2K7 infrared unit. No heated diode replacement or worry about if it's getting weak over time. Very sensative unit. the ZX1 is nice too but I'll stick with the FP.

    That is why you need infrared technology.

The site is growing and needs to be tweaked a bit.
    The tools section is what brought me to this site. I was looking for reviews on a couple things and found this. I've been in the field for 10 years so I'm not the general public. I know what these tools are and how to use them. In short I love the site and if this area were blocked I wouldn't be here now.

    I agree with keeping homeowners out of here but it seems like it would be a blanket effect. Do you think I don't belong here because it says guest under my name?

    I would hardly say that just because someone is a guest that they don't use "your" equipment. I have a couple grand in new tools and who knows what in old stuff that I either own have owned or have been issued that prove that wrong.
    Just sayin...
