Bacharach Leakator Jr 0019-7075 Combustible Gas Detector
Bacharach’s Leakator Jr (P/N 0019-7075) is an economical, compact, and easy to use combustible gas leak detector which enables HVAC professionals to quickly detect leaks and pinpoint their sources. Whether a technician is hunting leaks around residential furnaces, commercial boilers, or other gas equipment like valves and regulators, the Leakator Jr is an affordable and effective tool.
- Two detection modes: high sensitivity mode (down to 20 ppm of methane) for small leaks and low sensitivity (50 ppm of methane) for large ones
- Flexible 12” probe
- 14 hours of continuous operation per set of four AA batteries
- Visual (flashing LED) and audible (ticking sound) indication of combustible gas concentration
- 60-second automatic calibration
- Covered by a two-year full warranty
The Leakator Jr combustible gas detector uses a low power metal oxide sensor in the probe tip to detect the presence of combustible vapors and gases such as natural gas, benzene, ethanol, gasoline, industrial solvents, methane, propane, hexane, and paint thinners. The frequency of both a ticking sound and flashing LED indicates the level of these gases at the tip of the flexible 12” probe.
The high sensitivity setting is ideal for detecting combustible gases in the general area—a sign of a combustible gas leak from nearby combustion equipment or associated pipes. Once a leak is detected, its source can easily be identified by switching the Leakator Jr. to the low sensitivity setting and sweeping the area.
The Bacharach 0019-7075 Leakator Jr is UL 913 Classified for Class I, Div. 1 groups A, B, C & D hazardous locations. Not only is this detector safe, but it’s also durable: the Leakator Jr’s body is made out of heavy-duty ABS plastic.

convenient and accurte
Easy to use with one hand. Accurate to even detect small leaks. I am glad I got it this Fall.
can't miss audible sound
loud and clear detection signal, and it is backed up by blinking LED lights. Detecting leaks is very easy with Leakator.
easy to understand results
It ticks faster, when the leak is bigger or you are closer to it. Then, you can change sensitivity to a lower range and find a leak. It's easy, trust me.
made in US
Works great and it is not overly expensive for US made product. I recommend it to everybody, who detects combustible gases.
I like this meter especially because it is compact, it will fit in a tool bag unlike most leak detectors and still packs a good punch for your buck. I recommend this one.
one hand operation
I want to get things simple to operate, yet accurate. This is what leakator jr. offers. Besides, it detects small leaks like 20 ppm. This is a good deal on inexpensive US made tool.
I like this unit because it is affordable and makes it easy to find leaks and problems in case these is a gas problem or leak.
When you work with combustible gases, you want to make sure your readings are accurate, as your life might be in danger. I like leakator, as it is consistently accurate and UL rated. It's been working great for me.
secret to reveal
I like that little guy. Sensitive, yet not to expensive. Secret #1: has two sensitivity levels, and high is for small leaks. Secret # 2: comes with 2 year warranty. Oh, Secret #3: US made.
Pretty straight forward product. It detects for combustible gas leaks and does it well. I feel its a bit expensive but not many other options that are cheaper.
I thought we had a small leak in our furnace room so i picked this unit up. Found a pinhole leak very easily and got it repaired ASAP. Great to have for anyone in my opinion.
This is great because its small enough to keep on a toolbelt or in s relatively small toolbox which is awesome for working in industrial and construction jobs. Definately recommended.
