More often than not, gas is transmitted through underground pipes and lines, so it is only natural that your local license plumber be prepared to handle any gas leaks or gas line issues.
Most of the time, gas leaks can be located by smell alone, and this is because all natural gas has scent added at the local nearby petroleum plant. Additionally, underground leaks harden any soil surrounding a corroded pipe due to the chemical compounds within the gas. All official gas leak detection must be completed safely by a licensed plumbing contractor.
Frequently, gas companies will notify the property owner or manager about a leak and shut off the gas before a local plumber is even contacted. When the gas is already off, our team of technicians use high-pressure air to find a leak above ground.

The Importance Of Gas Line Plumbing
Because natural gas is flammable, it can be incredibly dangerous for property owners and occupants to encounter a leak and improperly handle a gas line. Only certified plumbing technicians ought to work on your gas lines. However, here are some simple preliminary tasks any property owner or manager can take on to confirm a gas leak or gas line break before calling a local plumbing professional.
- Smell: As mentioned earlier, many gas companies add a sulfur-like smell to gas, so leaks can be more easily detected. The smell is very similar to that of a stove burner that encounters a delay in lighting the flame after the gas it turned on.
- Discoloration: For outdoor leaks, the plants or grass near a gas line with a break and/or leak will be brown or discolored as a reaction to the chemicals inside the gas.
- Erosion: More often than not, the sulfates within a property’s soil will lead to the erosion of aging gas lines buried underground. This will inevitably cause a leak that is harder to locate and detect.
- Shut Off Gas: As an extra precaution, property owners and/or managers can shut off the gas valve whenever they suspect a potential gas leak. You can also contact your gas utility provider to help locate the valve and ask them any questions about your particular gas lines and system.
