Looks like a nice tool for finding R410A leaks..
Does anyone here have one of these units?? Can it find really small leaks? (R410A)??

I have one but have not used it much. I was able to find my leak with a visual check as Jeff suggested.

Were you able to test it out? What did you think of it?
And what do you think of being able to detect tiny gas leaks, as shown in the video?

I hate to comment on it too much. I found the leak the old fashion way. I knew where the leak was and I was not able to get it to detect the leak. It may work fine but it did not leave me with a great impression.

This was the first time trying it so if you know what you are doing with it might be good.

My new Elitech WJL-6000 will be here tomorrow..
I'll give it some testing, then use it on the Gree and maybe write a review..
I left the Gree connections un-insulated, so I can use the detector.

I hate using soap bubble slime. Once you get that stuff all over everything,
you have to clean it off, if you are going to install insulation that uses adhesive.
