UEI CD100 leak detector is a very sensitive instrument that picks up the smallest amount of natural gas (50 ppm) – those small enough leaks that that are not apparent to just the sniff test, but large enough to generate gas throughout the entire house. I’ve purchased my leak detector about two years ago when a fellow colleague recommended it. It is an affordable tool that impressed me with its quality and reliability.
If you’ve never used a leak detector before, this tool will be a breeze to use and work with from the start. Just make sure you read first the brief owners manual. Its click volume is pleasant and loud, but you may prefer to use earphones. The detector will find the general area of the leak and then you regulate the sensitivity again until you locate the exact spot. You first adjust the detector for a base level reading and it indicates increasing concentrations as you get closer to the source. Actually, it does take quite a few sensitivity regulations to find the precise location of the leak, but the adjustments are not difficult to perform.
The leaks are pinpointed by using the LED light in the tip, which helps distinguish accurately the space you are examining, being extremely helpful in dark spaces. The detector doesn’t give a read out on the amount of gas, but it clearly indicates when you go from a smaller to larger concentration.
The UEI CD100A leak detector is well made, durable and has a long neck that made it easier to get to difficult to reach places. I would recommend this tool for both residential and commercial uses. It should appeal to both professionals and non professionals alike planning to monitor gas installations or modify gas pipes.
