Personal injury or death can result from improperly checking for a leak.
Always use a board or cardboard when checking for a leak. Escaping air or fluid under pressure, even a pin-hole size leak, can penetrate body tissue causing serious injury, and possible death.
If fluid is injected into your skin, it must be treated immediately by a doctor familiar with this type of injury.
