Gas Piping Problems & Safety Information
Residential natural gas plumbing should be handled by professionals. But if you are doing a house inspection, are worried about a potential problem, or are considering an installation, keep these safety tips in mind.
When installed and maintained properly, gas piping systems are safe. However, there is always a small chance of a gas leak.
The most common problems in gas piping systems that can lead to gas leaks include:
- Bad installation
- Loose valves
- Worn materials
- Worn parts
- Damage to any part of gas piping
- Cracks in a gas line
- Missing parts
- Lose valves or connectors
- Piping installed in duct systems
- Lack of signage or labeling
Homeowners looking at an installation or inspection should be sure to shut off all gas mains before attempting to do any repairs.
If you smell gas while in an enclosed space, leave the area and call an emergency repair service right away.
