Pocket Air Check Leak Detector(2)

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

To an RVer the smell of LP-gas can be frightening and potentially dangerous. If you smell
LP-gas or your detector alerts you, vacate the premises immediately. Often times the
presence of gas is traceable to a faulty connection or fitting of some sort. Since locating
the source of a leak can be tedious and time consuming, it’s recommended that a
pressure-leak test be performed by a professional every year. Nevertheless, it’s important
that you also have a way of discovering leaks while on a trip or before you get on the
road. Fortunately, Nova Systems Products offers the Pocket Air Check leak detector. This
scaled-down version of Nova’s professional-level leak detectors makes fume hunting far
easier by optimizing an ultra-sensitive solid-state sensor calibrated to 5,000 PPM methane,
which is equivalent to 2,000 PPM LP-gas. Using this handheld sensor allowed us to
immediately pick up any minute signs of LP-gas during testing. Not only did we find the
Pocket Air Check to be extremely sensitive, but it also proved to be truly easy to use via
single-button operation and a combination of audible and visible warnings. Nova’s handy Air Check and about 10 minutes of your time is all it takes to perform a pre-trip safety check that could prevent a lot of grief later. The 6-inch device operates on two AA batteries,
which provide about 8 hours use. To add one of the Pocket Air Checks to your toolbox, stop
by Camping World or any HVAC supplier; the tester sells for about $30. For more
