Road Runner Posted August 6, 2014 Share #1 Posted August 6, 2014 So I am putting new detectors in my house, just for drill. My old ones are like 25 years old. The instructions say to test them weekly (yeah, right, like that is going to happen). They also say not to use a lighted item that creates smoke to test them. This is the way I have always tested them in the past. I don't trust that "push-a-button thing". I want to know the damn thing can detect smoke, not just whether it can respond to a pressed button. So how do you test yours? How many do you have? The instructions say you should have them in almost all rooms, except the kitchen (where most home fires usually start, I would guess).
