Yes, and you can tell if most of it is working or not.
They do have some sort of test device that releases CO when opened.
they're only the size of 4 nickles, or maybe 2 quarters, and I haven't
seen them retail iirc.
I have seen the testers you mention somewhere. The kits comes with a heavy
duty zipper lock plastic bag and a capsule with concentrated CO gas in it,
along with explicit instructions not to test inside a building.
Did you read the fucking manual????????????
It's not that I think stupidity should be punishable by death.
I just think we should take the warning labels off of everything
and let the problem take care of itself.
Your statement of effect is essentially the same
as in my Nighthawk book. The book also says that
the minimum for an alarm is 70ppm within 60 to 240
minutes. The display won't show anything below
29ppm unless you press the peak level button and
then it will show 11 to 29ppm. In English that
means it can't detect anything under 11 ppm.
That's good enough for me. Hell a model that
wouldn't detect 500ppm would be ok if just seeing
satisfied my wife. Diligent maintenance of gas
appliance is far more important that having a CO
detector. Mine hasn't gone off (except for a low
battery alarm) in 4 years and I don't expect that
it will ever go off before the detector fails.
I'll just keep watching my furnace and water
heater for any changes in operation--noise,
Thanks. That is quite a thread!
I have mine set on a table near the bedrooms and so far it's showing
a zero reading.
The package came with 3 AAA energizer batteries and indicates that it
chirping when the battery goes low.
How long have the batteries lasted for you folks ?
