Gas leak detection

Gas leak detection is a vital procedure, which should never be delayed both for safety purposes and to save fossil fuels and money. A gas leak detector will probably find the gas leak and assist a professional gas plumber in repairing it. Also, a pressure test can be performed on the line. A gas bill that is excessive or inflated compared to the earlier bills or a faint lingering smell are the common indicators that you may need a gas leak detection and repairs service.

How can you spot a gas leak?
  • If you think, you have a gas leak that may need immediate attention and repairing, a good way to begin finding is to switch off all your home appliances at the appliance control including those with a pilot (e.g. hot water heaters).
  • In the evening before going to bed, take a meter reading and then check it again when you get up the next morning prior to turning on the appliances. If the meter reading has changed (showing an increase), it would hint that you may need a gas plumbing professional who can detect the gas leaks and repair it as soon as possible.

How is a gas leak repaired?
