Gas Line Leaks

Al’s plumbing repairs or replaces gas lines throughout your home.  As a Safety Precaution, we give the following advice if you suspect you have a gas leak in your home.

What To Do If You Suspect A Natural Gas Leak

If you smell natural gas (rotten egg odor) or see signs of a leak:

  • Remain calm
  • LEAVE THE HOME and Call 911 from a safe distance.
  • DO NOT attempt to secure or stop the leak
  • DO NOT light a match, candle, or cigarette
  • DO NOT turn electrical appliances or lights on or off
  • DO NOT operate or use any ignition source, such as a phone, flashlight, or any kind of open flame.
  • DO NOT start a vehicle.

AL’S TIP: For about $45, you can purchase a combination Explosive Gas & Carbon Monoxide Detector to protect your home.  Al’s Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning does not sell these detectors or endorse any specific brand.

The most telling sign of a natural gas line leak is a rotten egg odor. This odor is added to the natural gas so it can be detected in the event of a leak. Natural gas line leaks can be extremely dangerous. The biggest hazard of a gas leak is an explosion.
