Will You Know If You Have a Gas Line Leak?
The most common sign of a gas leak is the smell of rotten eggs. Did you know that the smell is added in so people can detect a leak? That’s right, the gas is naturally odorless. Aside from the odor, there are a few signs to be aware of to detect a natural gas leak. The first couple signs are a hissing sound near the gas line or air bubbles in water (like in a ditch or pond.) You may also have a gas leak if you notice dead houseplants, white clouds or dust near the gas line or if you are constantly feeling ill with flu-like symptoms, breathing difficulties, or nausea. Pets can also experience natural gas poisoning, the best way to determine this is by taking them outside to see if symptoms lessen or disappear.

What to Do and Expect When Dealing with a Gas Leak
If you suspect there is a gas leak in your home, stop what you are doing. Immediately leave without turning anything off, and call us. As mentioned, we are a 24-hour plumbing company and we realize how serious a gas leak can be. It is important to leave your home because a spark from static electricity can easily catch fire and inhaling natural gas is not healthy.
Once we have arrived, we will assess the situation. Most often we can go about repairing any damaged lines by turning the gas off, applying an epoxy adhesive and testing the line. However, if the leak is too large or is caused by corrosion of the pipe, we may have to replace the fuel line.
