If you have gas on board your boat then it is vital that the gas related equipment and systems are regularly checked and maintained. Sadly these important tasks are not always prioritised. Dealing with pipe work isnt nearly as appealing as new upholstery or the latest technology. However, it is easy to check whether you have suffered a gas leak using our simple and affordable Omnitron hand held gas leak detector.
Gas presents a clear and present danger and should never be underestimated. Propane and butane can cause hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) which could lead to impaired thinking, long term health issues and even death. Of course gas leaks may also result in explosions which can destroy your boat and other boats moored close by. Such explosions are potential killers and will certainly cause a lot of heartache not to mention a great deal of expense.
The Omnitron hand held gas leak detector is easy to use. It is designed to detect even minute traces of combustible gases in and around boilers, fires, cookers and pipes. It features two alarm levels and being portable, you can use it anywhere, not just on board your craft.
It is far better to be safe than sorry with gas. A few minutes checking for leaks could save you from huge problems. Problems which can develop quickly.

You simply cannot be too careful when there is gas on board. Small measures can prevent huge problems so act now to protect your vessel and your crew.
