WHY WE WERE CALLED

To protect your family and friends from the harmful symptoms of a gas leak, it’s important to be familiar with the causes of leaks and how to prevent them. Since a gas leak may be deadly, do not attempt to fix a crack or hole in your gas line without a licensed plumber or HVAC technician. We received a call from a client in Edgecliff after reports of a gas leak

 

WHAT WE DID

We attended the property to investigate a gas leak. Followed the gas pipe from the meter and it only feeds the bbq bayonet point. We found a very light leak at this point unsure if this was the cause of the smell. The tradesman removed the bayonet and reinstalled it. He also found a stress point on the gas hose caused by a bend in the hose. Over time this will crack and could cause a serious issue. We needed to supply and install a new 2.5m bbq hose.

 

RESULTS

If you have an appliance in your house that utilizes natural gas to produce heat, it’s important to have your gas lines inspected on an annual basis.
