The BOLO from Nova Systems is ideal for plumbers, HVAC workers and DIYers, or indeed anyone needing to locate or check for gas leaks in tanks, pipe fittings, or valves.
Please note: For gas detection in OSHA-regulated confined spaces, please see the BW or RAE Systems lines of gas detectors.
Sold complete with kit containing the detector, pouch, batteries, earphones and a hard carrying case to offer protection for the unit.
Features of the BOLO:
- Simple design and ergonomics mean it is incredibly easy to use.
- When gas is detected, a variable-rate click alert sounds: the rate increasing with gas-concentration (and so proximity to the leak). LED indicators are available on the wand, too.
- Suitable for detection of: Natural gas, propane, hydrogen and butane
- A solid-state sensor makes the unit lightweight and highly portable.
- Ergonomic, folding ‘wand’ design retracts to easily fit in your pocket or the provided pouch.
- Low battery indication and auto shut off make the unit power efficient; the BOLO can run for up to 8 hours on regular AA batteries (included).
- Earphone jack and one headphone provided for working in noisy environments.

Could not be more pleased Review by Dennis P.
I purchased the gas leak detector because there has been an occasional gas odor in the house. Within 10 minutes of turning it on, the gas leak was detected. I couldn't be any more pleased with my purchase, the excellent delivery time, and the performance of my GasSniffer product. (Posted on 1/22/2014)
Great Item...very handy Review by Allen
I was impressed; I was able to find and fix my leak without having to call a plumber. Much cheaper and I have it for future issues.
Easy to use
Models with a flexible neck might reach around pipes better.

BOLO Combustible Gas Sniffer from Nova Review by DC
I have used this device and have found it to be exactly what I was looking for in a tester for natural gas piping. As a plumber I was looking for a reasonably priced tester that was better than what is sold in a box store but not as high tech (or as high priced) as some of those wand style testers, this was perfect.

Great detector Review by Russ
I do HVAC work and building maintenance and have used this gas detector on several occasions and was surprised by the sensitivity of it. Works great to pinpoint even tiny leaks. The hard case and belt pouch are a nice bonus. In my opinion this is a great little tool and a good bargain. I would purchase this again.
Tip is a little blunt to fit into tight spaces (hasn't been a problem for me yet)

Cheap Insurance Review by Curt
I used this to track down a leak coming from my gas oven. The alarm worked great at pinpointing where my leak was. First time I used it was a little concerning because it was going off in my kitchen before I even got to my stove. Took it outside and alarm stopped. Guess my leak was worse than I expected.

Here's what the manufacturer has to say about sensitivity:
The solid state sensor used in the Pocket Air Check portable gas leak detector can detect the presence of combustible gas in atmosphere as low as 300 ppm (propane), 500 ppm (methane). However, because it is a leak detector - and NOT a gas analyzer or gas monitor - you would not want the unit calibrated to go into alarm at that low of a level, or else, the alarm would go off in an inspection area before you actually located the leak. This is why the Pocket Air Check is calibrated to go into alarm when it detects 5000 ppm, which is well below the LEL (Lower Explosive Limit) for most combustible gases such as natural gas, methane or propane.
