LP Detector Problems CCI 7719

I've read some of the past threads about replacing a CCI 7719 detector. As the company has gone out of business I can't find the same model.

It appears that the newer detectors are not compatible with the existing solenoid valve. Pardon my ignorance, but is it possible to remove the valve from the system altogether and then simply have a stand alone gas detector/alarm?

Dennis, what you surmise is easily doable but care must be taken to test the connections in that area after removal of the emergency cut off valve. Use a solution (very diluted) of dawn dish detergent and water on a pressurized system to check for leaks. If there is a leak it will bubble up. Do not use any kind of thread tape or dope on flare fittings but a must on pipe thread fittings. Be sure the tape or dope is rated for LP fuel. Once you have it removed and no leaks are in the system, you can use a regular LP leak detector that only warns of a leak but does not shut down the system.
