I have several questions for those of you who utilize the TIFF 8800 for gas leak findings. I?ve been finding gas leaks every week but I want to avoid becoming an alarmist on every little gas vapor detection…
1.)Do you test all gas piping throughout the house or only when you smell gas?
2.)To what extent do you call out a gas leak; when the ticker starts pulsating faster or only when the ticker turns into a siren like sound?
3.)Do you find that most of the gas temperature controls (mostly water heaters) do leak at the top control knob?
4.)Do you find that half of the unions and elbows at gas lines do leak and to what extent to you call out a leak? Do you call out every finding even if its a minute leak (a small rise in the TIFF pulsations).
I'd appreciate feedback from all that are familiar with this tool.
