How To Recognize A Gas Leak

The main gas supply line to your home is most likely buried outside your home. But there are also gas lines running through your home to distribute gas to your appliances. Any leak in the main supply line or the gas lines inside your home should be taken very seriously. You should be concerned if you discover any of the following inside or near your home:

  • Natural gas and propane have no smell. However, a chemical called mercaptan is added to the gas to provide the odor of rotten eggs or sulfur. This step is a precaution to help in locating natural gas and propane leaks in a residential setting as well as in commercial applications.
  • If you see a white, dusty-looking cloud near a gas line or hear a hissing sound like a balloon that is leaking, then you are likely to be experiencing a gas leak.
  • If the gas leak is outside and the ground is wet, you could find bubbles coming up through the puddles in your yard. For an interior gas line, you could see bubbles on the pipe is the air is humid and has created condensation on the pipe.
  • When you find any visible damage, corrosion, or rust on a gas line, there is a very high possibility that the pipe’s integrity has been compromised and is leaking gas.
  • Plants are an excellent indicator of a gas leak. A group of dead plants near your outside gas line is a good indication that the gas line is leaking. Also, if you find that all of your house plants are dying, then you should have your gas pipes, and appliance checked for a leak.

Any time you suspect that you need a Gas Line Repair in Laguna Beach, Ca. Inside or outside your home, you should call the pros at Tweedy Plumbing as soon as you have safely evacuated everyone from your home. It is also a good idea to leave doors and windows open to for increased ventilation if you believe the leak is inside your home. Then remain a safe distance from your home until our licensed plumber arrives and determines that it is safe for you to return to your home.

Symptoms Of Exposure To A Gas Leak

A gas leak can cause serious injury to a person or pet and can also result in a fatality. This is because the gas saturates the air that the person is breathing and drops the level of oxygen in each breath. Persons suffering from low oxygen exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty breathing and possibly coughing
  • Dizziness or fatigue
  • Irritation to eyes, throat, and lungs
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Nose bleed
  • Ringing in the ears

In addition to these indications that you could find in humans, your pet’s reactions could also include:

  • Disorientation
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Watering eyes
  • Vomiting

At the first sign of any of these symptoms, evacuate your home and call 949-647-4785 for emergency gas line service.

    Everyone from scheduling to service were great. Honest, to the point, and knowledgeable. They were able to fit me into their busy schedule withing hours...SAME DAY!!! I would recommend them in the Newport Mesa are for sure. FYI- they replaced the pilot assembly kit/thermocouple in my GE water heater. Not an easy task as it requires dis-assembly and taking the heater pan out.
