Don’t risk a dangerous installation – use a fully accredited and registered plumberÂ andÂ gas fitter and be safe not sorry!
Gas leaks are very dangerous. For safety and to save you money, gas leak detection should not be delayed. If you can smell even the faint smell of gas or your gas bill seems too high, it is possible that you have a leak.
To check for yourself, turn off all the appliances in your house that use gas, including those with a pilot. Find your gas meter and take a reading before you go to bed and then again in the morning before you use any gas appliance. If the reading has changed you may have a leak and should call us to investigate further and repair as required.
A gas leak detection system would be to firstly pressure test the line. A device called a manometer can then be used to test your pipe work from the meter. It is also possible to check the service with special gas leak detection fluid.
A registered plumber with the necessary license, training and experience should be used for all gas-fittings. There are strict compliance regulations to adhere to so don’t risk a dangerous installation by using an unlicensed handyman or attempting a DIY. For installation and upgrade of gas meters and regulators, contact your local gas authority.
