What To Do If You Have A Gas Leak
In the event of a gas leak, the most important thing to do is to leave the property immediately. Avoid turning on any electronic devices or anything that could create a spark. Do not start your car if it is near the house. Do not use a lighter or any open flame. Do not use any electronic devices hooked up to switches and outlets, such as lights or appliances.
If you suspect a gas leak, Legacy Plumbing can help you locate the leak and repair or replace your gas line. In addition, we recommend having your gas line inspected regularly to prevent any potential leaks. We are experienced in:
Gas Leak Testing – Legacy Plumbing can perform a whole system gas test by adding a pressure gauge to the line to determine if there is a leak in the system.
Gas Leak Detection – Legacy Plumbing uses a variety of methods to detect and locate a gas leak. Once the leak is located, our technician will go over options for the repair, always giving you the pricing up front and before we start any work.
Gas Leak Repair – Once located and approval from the customer has been established, the gas leak will be repaired by our qualified technicians. Most likely, a city permit will be required for gas repair work. Legacy Plumbing will take care of all the permitting requirements with the city so you don’t have to. In some cities, the entire gas system must pass a gas pressure test before the inspection will pass. In any case, Legacy Plumbing can perform the work necessary to get your gas turned back on as quickly as possible.
Installation of new Gas Lines – Whether you want to run gas to your new gas cook-top or out to the outdoor kitchen, Legacy Plumbing has the experience to make your dream a reality.
