What are some signs that it’s time to repair or replace your gas line?
In order to tell if your gas line needs repairs, or outright needs to be replaced, you have to keep an eye out for certain signs that point out its state. Some things will be able to point to certain parts that may not be working at their max efficiency. Some signs you may be able to recognize are:
- Flexible hoses have become brittle or cracked.
- Corrosion and other factors that may cause cracks or joint separation on the pipes that are outdoors.
- If you suspect a gas leak due to the smell of sulfur or rotten eggs.
How do you know if you have a gas leak?
Gas leaks are a huge threat to any home. They can cause fires and even worse, explosions. Gas leaks are a plumbing emergency that you should never try to solve without the help of a professional.
Gas leaks can be identified by their obvious signs. If you hear a hissing sound, this could be a gas leak. The dead giveaway for a gas leak however is the smell of rotten eggs. Natural gas is odorless, so gas companies fuse the odor of rotten eggs into it so people can identify it by the smell.
If you suspect you have a leak, we can inspect your lines to insure they are sound. If you smell gas, you should check to see if all the burners on the stove are turned off and if the pilot lights are lit.
What should you do in the event of a leak?
In the event of a gas line leak you should leave things as they are and open the windows. Do not try to turn anything on or off or turn off any gas valves. It is important to contact us immediately. If the leak is severe, you should leave the building and call the utility company or 911. You should not use any electronic equipment in the presence of the leak. This includes turning on lights, using cell phones, starting any cars or use the garage door opener.
Under no circumstances should you ignite anything and you should not re–enter the property until told to do so. One of the benefits of having us inspect and repair your gas lines is it reduces the chances of there being a serious problem that could cause damage to your home or family.
