Gas leaks are no joking matter. When you suspect a gas leak in your home, you need an expert gas fitter out urgently to repair this. Book A Plumber Online understands the seriousness of a gas leak and can have a licensed gas plumber at your home within the hour* to locate the leak and repair it.
Signs of a Gas Leak to Watch Out For
There are a few different signs of a gas leak you can watch out for. The most common, and most easily identifiable, is the smell of gas.
Whether you smell sulphur or rotten eggs, it’s difficult to miss the smell of gas. Natural gas actually doesn’t have a smell – we add a harmless gas, called mercaptan, to give it this distinctive smell specifically so our noses can detect a leak early on.
You don’t need to just smell gas to know there’s a leak, though. Here are a few extra signs of a gas leak you can keep an eye out for too:
- unexpectedly high gas bills
- hissing/whistling noise near a gas line
- damaged gas lines
- unexplained bubbles in your water
- dead plants or patches of grass for no reason
- inconsistent water heating from a gas hot water system
- your pilot light changes colour or keeps extinguishing
If you suspect there’s a gas leak in your home, you need to immediately turn off the gas supply at the gas meter and contact a professional gas fitter. While you wait for repairs, try to ventilate your home by opening all the windows and doors and get whatever gas has leaked in your home out.
Expert Gas Leak Detection
Gas leak detection requires expert skills only a qualified gas plumber can provide. Using a manometer, they can detect pressure drops in your gas lines to confirm whether or not you do indeed have a gas leak.
If you have sprung a leak, your gas fitter will need to precisely identify the location and cause of the leak. This involves isolating your gas lines and gas appliances and testing them with the manometer until the leak is found.
After a full gas leak detection, repairs can be done to stop the leak. This might involve capping off that appliance temporarily, repairing a section of it or replacing the faulty section entirely.
