Do I Have a Gas Line Leak?
There are a couple of telltale signs that will let you know you have a gas line leak in your home, and it is important to pay attention to them. If you notice a strong odor that resembles rotten eggs, then the gas pipe may be punctured or damaged. You may also hear a hissing noise as the gas is escaping from the line, but that isn’t always the case. If you smell rotten eggs, it is important to take action quickly to prevent any serious problems and to keep everyone safe.
Because you have to move quickly in the face of a gas leak, having a plumbing company on hand that you can call is imperative. Gene Johnson Plumbing & Heating has technicians extensively trained to find the location of the leak, and either repair or replace the pipe, depending on the severity of the leak.

Extreme Dangers with DIY Repair
Trying to repair your own gas line is like taking your life, and the lives of those around you, into your own hands. As with any plumbing issue or home improvement method, things aren’t always as they seem and there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. Only, with a gas pipe, the stakes are higher because of the fire and explosion risk. Regardless of how well-versed you are in DIY matters; never try to handle a gas line repair or installation on your own.
