Gas Line Re-Piping – San Diego, CA
A natural gas leak in your home, business or surrounding areas should be considered an emergency and immediately addressed. Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, and Flood & Restoration are San Diego’s leaders in gas line repairs and a licensed plumber can help business and homeowners feel at ease that they are safe. If you suspect a natural gas leak in your house, a few warning signs are:
- A sulfur or rotten egg smell
- The sound of whistling or hissing sound near a gas line
- A white cloud or dust cloud near a gas line
- Bubbles in your water
- A damaged natural gas pipe
If you suspect there is a natural gas leak nearby, evacuate the area immediately and call your utility company’s emergency line. Do not call your utility company until you are safely outside of the affected area. If you opened windows or doors before evacuating, keep them open to help with ventilation. If you are able to safely locate the shut off valves, turn off the gas to the house. Failing to fix a gas line repair could result in illness, fire, or worse.
Don’t wait for an emergency to have your gas line repaired as prevention is key. A few ways to prevent a carbon monoxide or natural gas leak from occurring are:
- Insure that gas appliances are properly installed
- Install carbon monoxide detectors
- Inspect and service any gas or coal-burning appliances, such as your water heater, heating and air conditioning units and gas fireplaces, annually
- Have your flues in your fireplace cleaned out regularly
- Have your gas lines re-piped by thoroughly trained gas line plumbers
