Some common signs that your gas lines need repairs include:
- Bent lines
- Weakened lines

- Clogged gas lines
If you notice any signs of a leak or problem with your home or business’s gas lines, contact S & D Plumbing right away. Our trained technicians can quickly and correctly identify the issue and get to work making necessary repairs or replacements.
Do You Have a Gas Line Leak?
There are a few ways to tell if you have a gas leak. Cool gas lines, or lines with condensation, are one indicator of a leak.
As gas escapes from the line, the pressure within the line decreases, resulting in cool lines, condensation, or even ice formation. Other lines will create unexplained condensation or ice on the ground nearby or on vegetation surrounding them.
Other signs of a gas leak include:
- A distinct hissing noise
- Unpleasant gas odors
- Triggered carbon monoxide detectors
Because some gas doesn’t produce an odor, it’s important to have carbon monoxide detectors installed and maintained in your home. Detectors should be installed on each level of the home, especially near bedrooms, to alert people of gas leaks that have given off no other clues.
What Should You Do in the Event of a Gas Leak?
The most important step for someone who knows they have a gas leak or suspects there might be a leak is to get to a safe location far away from the leak.
They should refrain from using any electrical equipment, telephones, cell phones, or cars while leaving because this could create a spark, which could ignite any gas fumes present.
Next, the person should call 911 to notify authorities and should also notify the gas company, particularly if the gas leak seems to be coming from a main line.
Lastly, a professional plumbing repair technician should be alerted to find the leak and make any necessary repairs or replace the broken gas line. No one should return to the home until the leak is resolved.
