    You cant use any leak detector that uses a heat source to detect hydrocarbons as they can ignite the gas.Both the d-tek and tekmate have heated diodes.

    Tif models of combustable gas detectors are probably the best available.

    your are quite right to use leak detector as soapy water can contain alkalys which can corrode non ferros materials like copper & brass
