FAQs about emergency gas leaks
As it is an emergency plumbing issue, it may cost more than regular plumbing jobs. An emergency plumber will have to consider a few things to arrive at a final cost. The location and type of property, the day and time of day, the severity of the problem, the parts needed, and the time it takes to find and fix the gas leak thoroughly are all considered. The cost of an emergency plumber will be well worth it as they will ensure that life and property are safe and that your gas plumbing is working perfectly.
If you suspect one on your property:
- Turn off the gas at the meter box, or the gas bottle or cylinder on your property.
- Eliminate all ignition sources, such as pilot lights, electrical equipment/switches, and matches,
- and call an emergency plumber.
If you are a homeowner, you may have done some DIY work around the house when minor problems arise. Even if you have attempted some larger renovation projects, you should not attempt to fix gas leaks yourself.
The handling of gas by an inexperienced person can be extremely dangerous. Professional plumbers install water systems, but many are also trained to fix gas lines in homes and businesses. Gas has much more severe consequences than water when it comes to mistakes. So please, leave gas leaks to the professionals.
