Signs Your Gas Pipes are Leaking
Gas leaks are extremely dangerous and can be a threat to health and safety. If you notice any of the following in your home or business, call NTX Plumbing as soon as possible to schedule a professional inspection.
Natural gas is odorless, but Mercaptan is added to it so that we are able to detect a gas leak from its smell. Often compared to the smell of sulfur or rotten eggs, the smell of gas is a clear indication that there is a leak in your gas line. Leaky pipes may give off a hissing or whistling sound.
Orange or Yellow Flames
The flames on any gas appliance should always be blue. Pay close attention to the color of the flames on your stovetop or other gas-powered devices. Orange or yellow flames can be an indication that the appliance is leaking gas.
Dead Houseplants or Landscaping
If your houseplants, or shrubs and grass outside, have suddenly turned brown and rusty, or have died, you likely have a gas leak either inside or outside the property. When gas leaks out of your pipes, the oxygen that plant life needs to survive is replaced with carbon monoxide, effectively suffocating your plants.
Gas leaks will result in gas poisoning for people, pets, and plants. Carbon monoxide poisoning will deplete the body of oxygen and cause physical symptoms. If you experience any of the following, exit the building, removing any animals or children as well, and call 911 for possible gas poisoning right away.
- Difficulty Breathing
The Atmos Energy website is a good resource for information about how to stay safe and enjoy the benefits of safe, efficient gas.
Locating Gas Leaks
If you suspect a gas leak, it’s critical that you have a plumbing professional inspection scheduled right away. Our trained licensed plumbers will turn off your gas line and inspect all gas piping connections, including each valve and every connection to an appliance. We will then connect a gas pressure gauge to a burner orifice, and reopen the gas line to allow natural gas to flow through the entire system before securely shutting it off again. A gas pressure gauge will tell our gas repair experts if there is an issue as we isolate various sections of the gas line to identify the leak.
