- Exit the building.
- Contact your gas provider.
- Give us a call for fast emergency plumbing services and we will send out one of our gas pipe repair specialists.
How Can You Tell if You Have a Gas Leak in your Orange household?
It’s important to know the common signs that can help you determine if you might have a natural gas leak in your home. Considering the age of many Orange homes and businesses, it is important to know when it’s time to repair or replace your gas pipes. Here are a few things to look out for when determining if the gas lines in your home or business have a leak:
- Corrosion or damage to your pipes
- Inconsistent or low water temperature
- A smell like rotten eggs
- Problems trying to run more than one gas appliance at a time
How Do You Fix a Gas Leak?
Depending on the problem with your gas line, our experienced plumbers in Orange will repair your gas pipes in different ways. In some cases, your gas pipe may only require a simple patch, while in other cases, your gas lines require repiping. Most Orange County buildings use steel pipes and fittings for natural gas lines. However, gas pipes in newer homes built in Orange typically have corrugated stainless steel tubing, or CSST, which was recently approved by the California Department of Housing and Community Development. CSST carries with it a lower cost, both in materials and labor.
At Biard & Crockett Plumbing Services, Inc, our plumbing company strive to stays up to date with latest piping materials and plumbing technologies used in the plumbing industry and are certified to install CSST gas piping in your home. We explore new options for piping materials in order to make sure that we provide you with the very best plumbing parts available. Would you expect any less than the best for a plumbing company with more than half a century in the business?
Comparing Steel vs Polyethylene Gas Repiping Systems
Steel pipes and CSST are standard in aboveground gas piping systems, whereas underground gas lines often use factory wrapped steel pipe or various types of plastic. Our team of licensed plumbers are certified to install polyethylene (PE) gas pipe systems with heat fusion fittings. The test of time has proven that polyethylene gas pipes hold up much better underground than steel pipes.
Finding the Leak
Finding the source of a gas leak is a lot more difficult than detecting a leak. Our certified gas repair specialists will use a device commonly referred to as a “sniffer” to help locate the source of leaking gas. In certain cases it is necessary to use special equipment to test the pressure of your gas lines to locate the leak.
Gas Re-piping – Seismic Valve Installation
Earthquakes can cause serious damage to the integrity of your gas lines. In order to help prevent damage to your gas lines from seismic activity, our technicians can install seismic valves on your gas lines. Seismic valves are shut off valves and often referred to as earthquake valves. When they detect an earthquake, the seismic valves shut off the flow of gas to your home.
