How old is the alarm unit? They are only good for about 5 years. They don’t cost a bunch, replace the unit if it is older.

Can sewer gas set off the gas alarm ?

Guy


Sewer gas is mostly methane and ___anes are explosive for the most part. So yes. We call it a "Propane Detector" but it is truly and explosive gas detector.

Methane (Farts/Sewer)
Alcohol
Gasoline
Butane
Propane
and a host of other things that go BOOM if the air/fuel mix is right.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
