    Two 100 pound tanks gas tanks empty without use.

    So in a week my two hundred pound gas tanks went empty with almost no use of the fireplace. Also I noticed the carbon monoxide detector went off a few times. So I have a leak. Should I use soap and water to check for a leak?

    Yes, you can use soap bubbles to locate the leak or leaks.

    You should be able to almost Hear a 200 lbs. per week leak. <g>

    But yes; just use soap. There are special soaps for the purpose but children's bubble-blowing soap will work well.

    Can you smell raw propane inside your fireplace?

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.
