Gas Fitting and Leaks
Gas Pipes and Leaks
Did you know that you could have a gas leak, but not even know it? It’s well-known that a gas leak can lead to serious damage, and even fatalities, if it’s not detected. That is why it’s imperative that a leak is caught early.
Detecting a gas leak isn’t too difficult. A common indication is if you can smell something similar to rotten eggs. A more sure-fire way of checking if there’s any leaking gas is to turn off all your gas appliances and look at the gas meter to see if it’s still ticking.
