Sniff Out Gas Leaks — Fast!

Filed under: Articles

Remember this?

(The relevant part starts at the 5:00 mark.)

In this old episode of Home Improvement, Tim accidentally blows up his friend Benny’s house after fixing a leaky furnace. Why? Because there’s another gas leak — in the stove — that Tim doesn’t know about. Tim claps, activating a lamp that’s plugged in to a socket inside the house, igniting the gas from the stove. The house blows to smithereens. A debate ensues over who is to blame for the explosion — Benny for saying nothing about the leak in the stove or Tim for clapping.

If only Tim had had a TracerMate leak detection device. He and his partner Al would have realized that there was a gas leak in the stove and they would have been able to fix it, preventing the explosion altogether.
