Gainesville Gas Line Repairs

A leaking or faulty gas line or gas tank can be disastrous, and it’s not worth the risk to try to fix the problem yourself. Only a certified professional should repair or replace natural gas, propane, and liquid petroleum lines and tanks. The certified technicians with Quality Plumbing of Gainesville Inc. have the expertise needed to locate, identify, and repair natural gas or liquid petroleum leaks. If you suspect a gas leak at your home or business, leave the building immediately and call Quality Plumbing of Gainesville Inc. We are available 24 hours a day for your safety and convenience.

How To Detect A Gas Leak

Because gas line leaks can cause explosions, suffocation, and other dangers, it’s essential to know the signs of a gas leak so you can react immediately. Some gas leak symptoms to be aware of include the following.

  • The smell of rotten eggs. Natural gas is odorless on its own, but gas companies add an odor similar to sulfur or rotten eggs. If you’re smelling something funky, it could be a sign of a gas leak.
  • Hissing noise. Many common household problems can lead to a hissing sound, such as a burst water pipe, but if you hear hissing and cannot find any spraying water, that might be because what’s spraying out is imperceptible gas.
  • Cold pipe. The reduced pressure from a gas leak may cause your supply line to be cold or even frosted.
  • Lower pressure. A leak could cause lower pressure at your gas stove.
  • Dying landscape. A leak from a gas line leading into your home or business may cause the surrounding vegetation to wilt or die. If the rest of your landscape is lush except for one area, it may be due to a gas leak.
  • Gas leak detector. Investing in this relatively inexpensive gadget could save your life.

If you suspect a gas leak, it’s essential to act fast. Quickly move away from the area, going outdoors if possible, and call a leak detection service or 911. Do not waste time turning off lights, appliances, or plugging or unplugging anything, which may cause an ignition spark. Don’t even try to air out the area by opening windows. If the main shut off valve is far enough away from the leak, you can go shut it off. Otherwise, leave it alone for when the professionals arrive.

Carbon Monoxide Detection

If you use natural gas or liquid petroleum on your property, we strongly recommend installing a carbon monoxide detector. These small devices are often lifesavers when a leak occurs during the night or when a homeowner is away, alerting families, and sometimes neighbors, of danger. While our Gainesville plumbing team has the necessary equipment to locate and repair a gas leak quickly, it is never safe to try and do so on your own. Let our professionals take care of it while you get yourself and your family to safety.
