Gilbert Gas Line Plumbing

Safe, Professional Assistance in the East Valley & Surrounding Areas

Gas lines supply needed fuel to appliances in our homes. Gas might be what powers your oven, your washer and dryer, and any outdoor fire areas you may have. Gas is needed to make water heaters function. We rely on gas lines, but a gas leak can be a very dangerous thing. It’s important that all homeowners know the warning signs and what to do in the immediate aftermath of discovering a leak.

Six Warning Signs You Have a Gas Leak

1. Rotten Egg Smell

Gas is installed with methanethiol, a chemical that creates an odor that smells like rotten eggs. This is done for safety precautions, to provide homeowners with an unmistakable scent that will warn them of a gas leak. Be aware that not every gas leak will produce this smell, so other warning signs must be watched closely. 

2. Hissing Sounds

When gas lines start to leak, the resulting hiss can be tip off. It is possible that the hiss might have other causes, like a leaky valve to a bad compressor, but none of these causes are harmless. 

3. Dying Plants 

You’ve dutifully watered your plants, but they’re slowly dying. When gas gets out of the plumbing system, it prevents the roots of a plant from absorbing needed air. You might notice similar problems outdoors. In this case, a pipe running underground that’s leaking gas can be the cause. 

4. Your Health Suffers

Gas in the air is no better for you and your family than it is for the plants. Do you or anyone in your household find yourself suffering from headaches, fatigue, nausea, or breathing problems? While these symptoms have a wide range of causes, breathing in the air after a gas leak is one of them. It’s also possible you might see skin damage, including blisters, resulting from the excessive exposure to gas. 

5. High Gas Costs

A small gas leak might be able to hide from your eyes and even be small enough that the symptoms discussed above might not manifest, but there’s no hiding from the gas bill. Any leak means higher usage, and if your gas bills are higher with no other discernible cause, the possibility of a leak must be considered. 

6. A Foggy Mist

When the gas lines that are outside the house start to leak, a result can be the development of an unnatural mist in the area where the leak is coming from.

What to Do When You Have a Gas Leak

Let’s say you suspect a gas leak but aren’t really sure. You aren’t smelling or hearing anything, but some of the other signs above are present. If you have an idea of where the leak might be coming from, you can try an at-home test, called the bubble test. Bring a mixture of water and dish soap to the area you suspect the leak might be and wipe the soapy water on it. If it starts to bubble, a gas leak is probably the reason. 

This is a short-term test. A good long-term solution is to install a carbon monoxide detector that can alert you if excess gas is in the house. 

Right now, you need to get to safety. If you suspect a gas leak, the important thing to do is evacuate. Go to a neighbor’s or a friend’s house and give us a call. Even if it’s just a suspected gas leak, safety precautions include not using anything electrical and keeping your doors open. 

If you’re sure of the gas leak, the need for evacuation is absolutely necessary.
