    I still own my 20 yrs old manual Bacharach kit. You know the one with the smoke gun pump and Red gauge fluid filled CO tester. Still works great...yes I'm a old timer but still learning...doing Controls now.

    I love mine, I have the combustion analizer with the O2 sensor and thats the only complaint I have is the lifespan of the O2 sensors. But other than that I love mine.

    Those O2 Sensors Are Expensive To Replace Arent They?

    Also How Long Does That Fluid For The CO In The Old Manual Kit Last For?

    O2 sensors are $140 for just the sensor I calibrate myself with N2. There is no fluid for the CO there is just a CO sensor that looks like the O2 sensor that can be replaced. But the lifespan on the CO sensor is considerably longer than the O2 sensor. The O2 sensor has a shelf life and will expire. The CO sensor will not and should last for many years.

    Im Talkin About The Co Fluid For The Old Kit Like MrBill1979 uses. I Might Just Buy One Of The Older Manual Kits Instead. Im Just Using It For Side Work Anyway.

    I used to clean mine out every 2 years or so and fill with new fluid. We tested mine along side the new electronic ones when the first came out. The old one was about +/-2 percentage points. The old ones just don't have the "wow" factor. lol

    The 60 is quick to give readings, and works well for diagnostics.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    I have two 60's and they do respond quickly. Been in service for close to ten years. I don't know why you would want to buy the old suitcase kit.

    i use a ck75 made by uei, it''s ok, the only thing is you have to send in for calibration every 2 years to certify it's working,and change sensors, it runs about 2 1/2 digits if you get my drift, especially if you use the infered printer for a document for readings. if it's not re calibrated after 2 years and something happens it could create issues!
