" It is pretty sad that the professionals were unable to find the leak"

Almost scary!
Hope you got everything straightened out.

I am having some problems with the radiators in my house and I wonder if it is the same thing. But that is just me, I am totally lost about these technological and around the house things so I probably will get a contractor to take a look.

Whenever a water heater is installed the connections should have been tested by the installer

I would say 50% of the time there is a leak normally on the main flame tubing (supply to the burner) or the standing pilot tube which is constantly energized

Kathy. I have the exact same issue with a Bradford White gass water heater. The leak is coming from the exact same place! Can you tell me which model of UEI sniffer you bought? Was replacing the control pricey? I too have had professionals out to diagnos the problem could be found! Really???? No problem?... Follow your nose guys.... Hope to hear from you soon. Guess I have to take the same route you did.

Do not rely on the snirffers. They sometimes do not show leaking gas where their is a leak and sometimes show a leak where there is none. Dish soap and water. Make it real soapy(lots of soap bubbles) and dob it on area where leak is suspected. Watch for bubbling. It could take 30 seconds or longer if the leak is real small. It will grow into a larger mound of bubbles indicating a leak.
