One of the most wanted but dangerous elements of a plumbing system in any home or business is natural gas. Gas makes our daily lives comfortable, but if it is improperly installed, it can be a dangerous thing, causing costly damages, or even death. Gas systems help us to have hot water by keeping the water in our water heaters hot, in homes that run gas, the stoves, fireplaces, even dryers can run on gas. Barbecue and fire pits in the yard also commonly use gas.
A new gas line is considerably more than just throwing in some piping and job done. A new gas line has to be carefully designed, installed, and inspected for quality assurance and reliable function. We pull permits according to law with the city of Murphy, make sure all code requirements are up to date for your safety, and then the city inspects the gas system.
Gas leaks are one of the most common problems with gas systems in Murphy. Many times, home and business owners don’t even realize they have a gas leak until the city of Murphy turns the gas off. Once this happens, a Texas licensed plumber must pull a permit with the city, and then test the gas line and find the source of the leak(s). Once the issue is found, the plumber will then repair the leak. The plumber will then assess the whole system, per law, to find any code issues within the gas system. If any problems are found, they must be brought up to code. Once this is done, and the plumber is satisfied the system is up to code and not leaking, the city will be called out for an inspection. If they are satisfied, they will give a green tag and the gas company can then be called to turn the gas back on. This can be a couple of days without gas, so if you suspect you have a gas leak, call us immediately and let us get your system back up to par.
Gas line installation: When you have a new gas appliance, water heater, or outdoor fire pit, hiring a licensed plumber is the best way to go. This will ensure the system is secure and safe and installed per safety guidelines and state code. We use the best materials for the gas line installation making sure the necessary sizing is implemented so the rest of your home or business is not affected and then we ensure the system is inspected by the city.
Gas line augmentation: When adding a gas run item to your system, it may be necessary to update the entire line. One common instance of this is converting from a tank water heater to a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters take a great deal of gas, and it may be that the amount of gas needed will require a larger gas line, so the rest of your system is not affected.
Plants and Landscaping Dying: Natural gas escaping a line can kill vegetation within a single day, making it a good sign to watch for!
Sulfer Smell like Rotten Eggs: Though natural gas has no odor of its own, the companies that supply it add a chemical called mercaptan to gas to aid in detecting leaks. The chemical is responsible for the sulfur/egg odor.
Hissing noises: Noticing a hissing sound in your home that sounds like a snake with no obvious source? Immediately check your gas lines! If you spot an issue, it’s wise to shut off your gas and call for repair ASAP.
