This tool never worked, I questioned it and .

This tool never worked, I asked for it and took it to the burner with no flame but it still didn't burn. A piece of junk. But thanks for taking my money.

Do not buy! - Gas Detectors and Alarms

I feel bad for doing a lot of tests on this analyzer but it doesn't work. On my last inspection I was with my customer who smelled a gas leak but the tester showed nothing. Shame.

Pros
  • Good product for the price
Cons
  • Crumpled

Professional and Accurate

Nothing says you're a pro like having the right tools for the job. Sure, you can walk in with a business card and shoe covers, but if you think the gas leak detector is your nose, then you need to up your game. Image is very helpful during maintenance work and having a tool that the average person doesn't have and being able to pinpoint the location of a leak and the severity of a leak speaks volumes to your credibility as a professional trader. A combustible gas detector gives me peace of mind

Pros
  • Great Price
Cons
  • Vanish

Can detect hydrogen/hydrogen sulfide from battery pack

I bought this to check the hydrogen level in a battery storage tank (24 x 2V 800Ah traction lead acid batteries) in my solar system. They gas well under charge. Wanted to make sure my ventilation system is adequate. Seems to be working fine. Tested with butane from a lighter. Turns out it works. I then re-zeroed the battery box and checked that it was between 160 and 320ppm depending on how close it was to the batteries. Since batteries emit hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide, I'm not sure which…

Pros
  • Quality construction

  • #

Bought a device to locate a potential low level leak that has been brought to our attention by several visitors over the years have made. Blok not only detected methane in the entrance of our house, but also located it on the gas line that led to the stove behind the fridge. The user calibrates the device outdoors where the methane level in the environment is very low. The unit auto shuts off after five minutes, which annoys me, especially when I'm monitoring every gas line connection under the

Pros
  • good thing
Cons
  • almost everything is fine

That does not work ! The Best Gas Detectors and Alarms

Let me start by saying that I am a Licensed New Jersey Home Inspector. Retired Firefighter. I have many years of professional experience with gas meters and detectors. This hard detector does NOT work. I calibrated it as I understand it. And it has NOT detected ANY gas leak from my stove. I took the detector outside for 5 minutes and brought it back for double checking. Nothing. I changed the batteries and the third time nothing. The fourth time I put it back on my stove. After 2 minutes he…

Pros
  • Easy Installation
Cons
  • Long Delivery Time

money well spent. Thank you hard!

Quality product as expected from Rigid. Well made and designed. Easy to use with a choice of high and low sensitivity. Reading is done with the help of visual strips, amplified sound signals and vibration. Uses 4 AA batteries. Comes with a nice zippered hard case and manual. The sensitive element has a lifespan of 5 years and will be replaced by a hard one. I am building a home on Lake Michigan and decided to check all the gas lines after all my mechanical subcontractors were done as the…

Pros
  • High marks for support and durability from testers
Cons
  • I have nothing wrong with it, everything is fine

This monitor works! Yes, I'm surprised.

I have to share my amazing experience. Our bathroom in our basement smelled strange for a long time. I thought it might be gas but the basement generally smells like mold so I wasn't sure. I recently decided to buy this gas analyzer. Turn it on and let it calibrate. Then I went to our basement. A 40ppm gas was found near the closed bathroom door! I opened the door, went into the bathroom and the sensor started to go up to 160ppm. I walked around the bathroom and other rooms and of course the…

Pros
  • delivery was very fast
Cons
  • working speed

Excellent combustible gas detection - tool needs rework

As mentioned, the sensor will heat up in about half a minute when first switched on. This is in the manual and is expected. So it doesn't mean turning on the tool immediately and moving on. Haven't encountered the timeout issue yet, but note that the manual says the device turns itself off after 10 minutes of inactivity - toggling from low to high seems to help others, and when you do it stays on . Detects many flammable gases well. The vent hose from the motorcycle's fuel tank detects this…

Pros
  • Slim design
Cons
  • Update available
