The new affordable housing project in Crested Butte, i think it's an oring or something?
Hard to imagine a leak that small putting out that much co1.
Must have been burning poorly aa well.
Also surprised that the building department didn't insist on detectors as per code

    Agree...In Summit country they will not give you a final inspection unless you have CO monitors.
    Do you know which Make and Model has these issues?

    Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs appreciates your your positive feedback on NCIS Director, however can you clarify if you are referring to Director Vance or Director Shepard or the original Director Morrow

    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?

    UL Listed detectors do not alarm until 70 PPM has been reached or exceeded for UL to 3 hours. 

    Low level alarms alarm at much lower PPM’s but don’t meet code!
