There are many ways to detect a natural gas leak in a house, from a simple bubble test to high-end gas-sniffing devices costing hundreds of dollars. The people from TopTes (makers of an inexpensive gas leak detector) reached out to me on my BPV Facebook page and asked if I would consider featuring their product in one of my videos.
They were kind enough to send one over and I said if it stands up to the test, I’ll be happy to post a video. My opinion when it comes to finding gas leaks in your home is to always call in your licensed professional or local utility. That being said, for the price point of this product and the fact that it does detect leaks quickly, you might consider keeping one handy in that misc. kitchen drawer
If you suspect a gas odor, you can turn it on, let the tool calibrate and at the very least find the source. Then you can call in your licensed professional or local utility to make a proper repair. This video is a basic overview of the PT199 and its capabilities. Use caution when dealing with any type of combustible gas leaks.
Regards & Happy Plumbing
