    Yes, they are really good for detecting that there is a leak, and maybe pinning down where it is, but a gas leak spray is cheap and froths where the leak is, so it is easier to locate.

    I gave up on 'sniffers' a long time ago....

    They are good... Possibly too good as they will detect traces lingering on pipework/hoses/surrounding materials etc
    Away from the actual source of the leak....
    UV dye/and or bubble type sprays are the most reliable and accurate way of leak finding IMHO.

    Perhaps if you have been doing work on the system sprays may be effective but for doing a routine check the sniffers win hands down in my opinion. A quick sweep round the gas storage and gas appliances with the sniffer and you know id further investigation is needed.

    We have just had an auto-changeover valve fitted on the cottage cylinders. You leave it set to one cylinder & when that runs out it pulls from the other one but shows a red marker to tell you that tank is empty. Then you swap the tank & switch it to the other tank & wait for the red marker again. That way you only have to check every so often & will know if one tank has run out.

    For a routine check, nothing beats a pressure test.
