How To Tell If There Is A Gas Leak
Smell rotten eggs? The first and most obvious sign you have a gas leak is a strong rotten egg smell. This could happen at connections to gas-powered appliances that have become damaged, at gas fireplaces, near gas water heaters or outside the home.
Hear hissing sounds? Hissing or whistling sounds from your gas line also point to a possible leak.
Notice dead vegetation in your yard? If you notice a patch of dead vegetation in your yard, it could be the result of a damaged gas line leaking onto the surface and affecting your vegetation. Other factors contributing to damaged gas lines include pipes becoming exposed after extreme weather, ground shifting, or normal wear and tear.
