As with the water lines running from your water meter to your house, the gas lines that run from the gas meter into your home are your responsibility. If there are any problems with those gas lines, the homeowner is fully liable for all repairs and maintenance.
Many factors can result in gas leaks or other problems with your gas lines, including poor installation, age and pressure, or inadequately durable pipe.
A gas line repair is not a DIY project–always call your local gas company or a professional, licensed plumber if you suspect a gas leak.
Natural gas is odorless. Your local gas company adds a strong-smelling, sulfuric odor to natural gas to help residents identify gas leaks when they occur. If you notice this odor, your safety and the safety of your family is the paramount concern. Leave the building immediately and notify the gas company of a potential leak.
Make sure your gas appliances, ranges and BBQ fixtures are working safely and efficiently with expert gas line repair and installation services by Dog Gone Right Plumbing.
There are several problems that most commonly affect your gas lines and BBQ fittings. They are:
Cracked seals: Seals located on the ball joints of your gas line will dry out over time and crack. This issue is often difficult to diagnose without the help of a trained eye.
Fittings that are incorrectly sized: We also often repair work that was completed by an amateur. Fittings that are the wrong size will create numerous problems within the gas line.
Joint and connector issues: The most common issue often stems from deteriorating components such as the joints and connectors. They will wear out over time, corroding the protective layer and creating issues within the system.
Your gas appliances require specialized service from technicians who are trained and experienced in dealing with gas line repairs and installations. At Dog Gone Right Plumbing we have been helping homeowners in Marshall County, AL with their gas lines for over 20 years.
