I recommend GGS GasClam® service and the way they interpret the data as being a fantastic asset to coming up with the right answer. They will really make a difference to you if time is critical – they have the potential to shorten the monitoring period from months or years to a matter of weeks and the data they provide is still far, far better than you would get through conventional methods.
