Product Description

The Amprobe GSD600 leak detector senses leaking gas in closed piping systems and is for use in home, industrial, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) maintenance applications. The semiconductor sensor detects methane and propane gas. The attached flexible, stainless steel probe is 17.6" (447 mm) long and provides access to hard-to-reach areas. It has a sensor cap that protects the sensor during transportation and storage. An audible buzzer notifies the user when gas is present and beeps more frequently as the concentration of gas increases, for pinpointing the source of leaks. A display panel with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) indicates the concentration of gas detected. The unit automatically calibrates when it is powered on, helping to ensure measurement accuracy. A mute button silences the buzzer when using the detector in quiet workplaces, and the detector has an earphone jack for connecting a headset (not included) to the meter. The auto power-off feature turns off the unit after 10 minutes of non-use to conserve battery life, and a low-battery indicator signals when the meter's batteries need to be replaced. The unit comes with a carrying case.

Leak detectors are used in mechanical, automotive, petrochemical, wastewater treatment, plumbing, electrical, and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) applications to locate the source of a leaking gas or liquid. Simple leak detectors use dyes, pH- or chemically reactive indicators, or a foaming substance to find leaks in pipes, tubes, fittings, tanks, and cylinders. More complex leak detectors have electronic sensors that measure the concentration of leaked gas or liquid in an area to pinpoint the source of leaks, determine the type of gas present, monitor air quality, and detect electrical corona or failing valves, bearings, and solenoids.

Amprobe manufactures electrical testing equipment for commercial, industrial, and home use. The company was founded in 1948 and is headquartered in Everett, WA.

This is a high quality electronic device backed by a respected American company. It performed exactly as described, is EXTREMELY sensitive, and will help locate the tiniest leaks. It can detect propane starting at only 35 ppm (parts per million), which is LONG before a human nose at about 400 ppm.

This detector did exactly what I needed it to do: find gas leaks in the pipes in my basement supplying natural gas to my furnace and water heater. I called Amprobe to ask them if this would work for me, but no one was able to confirm what the contents of "natural gas" are , so no one could tell me if this would work or not. Doing my own research, I came across this blurb at http://energy.wilkes.edu/pages/148.asp

"Natural gas is a mixture of small organic molecules that are all gasses at normal temperatures. Methane is the most abundant constituent of natural gas, while ethane, propane, and helium are also present. Natural gas also includes trace amounts of other organic gases."

Since this product is described as being able to detect methane and propane, I went ahead and bought it. It worked perfectly for me. I could detect small leaks (40-80ppm) and big leaks (off the scale at over 640ppm). The only problem with this purchase is that the four AA batteries that came in the package were dead on arrival, and I had to supply my own batteries. No big deal. That, and when you open the handy plastic carrying case for the detector, it really stinks like some awful plastic/petroleum product smell. The case now lives out in my workshop; the detector lives inside the house with me.

This gas leak detector excels in performance. Unlike others in price range, Amprobe has audible alarm and led
numerical indicator to see the amount of leakage.

This gas detector really work great. Couldn't be more happier the way this product works, Very easy to setup and use. Wish it would had came in like it was schedule. Would had save me about $1200. Plummer had the same one but didn't use it until the second day of making hole in my walls looking for leaks. Turns out the major gas leak was right outside the house by the garage door. Coming out of the ground. Steel pipe had rusted out under ground. Propane was leaking thru the ground and cracks in the cement in the garage. Made it seam like the leak was inside the house. Plummer use his (same probe) and went straight to the leak.

Yes, it does take a full minute to 'warm up' - but, beyond that, it does the job very well.

It appears to be well made and it has a case to store it in.

I did my research on detectors and this one was well worth the money for it's quality.

First, something that was mentioned in these reviews: Yes, this device detects natural gas. Another buyer already said it and I confirm. Since the Amprobe is equipped with a Figaro TGS 2611 sensor (properly a methane semiconductor detector), it can safely confirm that this device detects natural gas.
About the device itself, I also confirm that it is extremely sensitive. The big question is: At what level the gas detection is dangerous? For example, Is 40 ppm level dangerous? Is 60 ppm level dangerous? In other words, At what level detected we should start worrying? As this unit is not announced exclusively for gas experts or plumbers but also for home use, Amprobe should clarify or give more information about this question.
This may seem silly but the truth is that many people (like me) buy these devices searching help to find gas leaks at home that we can smell but we don't know where are. The problem with such extremely sensitive device is it also detects other minimal leaks that we can't smell. Leaks that nobody knows before that exists. Result: you begin to go something crazy asking something like “Is this really a leak or it’s perhaps an appliance measurement error?. And you go crazy thinking the valves and pipe joints that you must fix or change. It is my personal experience of course!
Finally, a minor but not least important detail: the sensor cap is very fragile. It should have a better design to protect internal wires when removing the cap. Accidentally I unscrewed the sensor cap and the single rotation of it breaks the extremely thin and unprotected internal wires. I think that it would be good that Amprobe copy the best practices of the best manufacturers and redesign that so fragile part of the device with some protection for these wires. A favour to “fools” like me.
Conclusion: I still believe that this Amprobe gas leak detector is the best relation quality/money and I recommend it, with the doubts observations noted above.

Found several leaks in my old gas piping immediately, this unit is very sensitive and works well. I like the adjustable snake that allows access behind equipment.

Seems pretty well built though is made in China, but what isnt?

Had a small LP leak in our camper connections to the tanks. Water bubbles just wasn't going to work for us to find the small leak. A little pricey for a one time use but better than what could have happened if the leak were not found.
