Propane Detector Alarm : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

If a propane line leaked(nothing to do with improper combustion where the flame is), I understand that the gas is heavier than air and would accumulate at the floor level. There are alarms for this-always close to the floor in RVs. Does anyone know a good source to buy an alarm? I think they are pretty expensive; anyone know??

I purchased mine from Sorry, I am html inept so no link. I believe the price was <$50. I got the 120V model. If the power does go out here, I'll have to pursue another storage location. My concern was to get something that I could use after Y2K and this model doubles as a natural gas detector (function of placement on the wall). No flames please about how I should have bought the 12V model. I am doing the best that I can assuming a DGi hubby and limited funds. If the power is out for an extended time, all bets are off anyway. By the way, my order came right away. I hope that this helps.

I saw one at Eagle Hardware (near Seattle) yesterday, right next to the carbon monoxide detectors. The manufacturer is American Sensors, and the price was $42.96. It plugs into a wall outlet. I was kind of hoping for a battery-operated one, but I didn't find one.
