Can I DIY My Gas Line Repairs?

The short answer is no, because repairing your gas lines in Texas is illegal. This job has to be done by a qualified and licensed professional because it can be dangerous and in worst cases, fatal, if not done the correct way. Safety is the biggest reason you can't do this job alone. For the safety of your family and your home, make sure you don't try to fix gas lines by yourself, and hire a professional to help you.

What Should I Do If There's a Gas leak?

If you have a gas leak or suspect a gas leak, leave your home or building immediately. A gas leak is dangerous if inhaled and can cause explosions. Don't stay in your home to open any windows, don't use any electronic devices. Don't stay inside your home for any reason if you suspect a gas leak. Evacuate with your family and get a safe distance away from your home. Then call 911 to let them know of the gas leak. Then you can call your gas company or a licensed technician to take care of the issue.

Signs of a gas leak include:

  • The smell of sulfur (sulfur smells like rotten eggs)

  • A hissing or whistling sound near a gas line

  • A white cloud or dust cloud near a gas line

  • Bubbles in puddles in the yard

  • A damaged gas pipe

  • Dead plants, trees, or bushes near a gas line

  • If your gas bill is higher than normal


There are also physical symptoms that are important not to ignore:

  • Breathing difficulties

  • Dizziness

  • Fatigue or drowsiness

  • Feeling lightheaded

  • Flu-like symptoms

  • Headache

  • Eyes and throat irritation

  • Nausea

  • Nosebleeds

  • Chest pain

  • Ears ringing

A gas leak is dangerous to your health and must be dealt with immediately. Evacuate if you see any of these signs, feel any of these symptoms, or suspect you may have a gas leak. If you feel any of the above symptoms, or a member of your family does, go to a hospital immediately to seek medical treatment.

Do not re-enter the house until it is confirmed safe by a certified inspector. They will use a tool called an electronic gas analyzer to check for a gas leak and to determine if the levels are gone and the house is safe. Once the house is safe, make sure to install a carbon monoxide alarm if you do not already have one.

Am I at risk for a gas leak?

Anyone that has gas in their home can be susceptible to a gas leak, but there are things that make a leak more likely. Gas pipes, over a long period of time, can age and warp, bend, or break. Age and exposure can age gas lines and corrode their outer material until breaks start to happen. Other than age, poorly installed appliances can also lead to gas leaks, this is why it's important to always have a licensed plumber hook up appliances and handle gas lines.

Alex was just wonderful. He explained everything did a great job and was friendly and courteous. Very professional in every way.

Satisfied Customer

Very nice and knowledgeable people from office staff to the plumbers. Would definitely recommend using this plumbing company.

Linda G.

Fine young man and as far as I am concerned he can be his permanent tech. He was very polite and he was very pleased with him and will be calling us again to work with Manolo. Manolo needs a pat on the back and he did a good job.

Satisfied Customer

This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.

How do I minimize risk of a gas leak?

The best thing to do to minimize risk is to schedule regular inspections. A certified professional can inspect your house regularly to ensure your gas lines are in proper working order and safe. They can let you know if it's time to make repairs or to replace gas lines before any problems occur. Make sure to install carbon monoxide detectors. While this can't get rid of a gas leak, it can help you be prepared if one does happen.

Who will fix the gas leak?

After you've called 911 and the utility company to report the gas leak, then you can call the professionals at 1-800-Plumber +Air of Pearland. Our licensed and insured professionals can fix your gas leak and do regular inspections so it won't happen again!

How Often Do Gas Leaks Happen?

Gas leaks are more common than you might think. They're common in front yards. If you see little patches in your yard without grass growth, this could be a sign of a gas leak. Gas leaks that are major and cause explosions are less common, but they do happen. That's why it's extremely important to diligently have a licensed professional check up on your gas lines and get them repaired or replaced before any major damage can happen.
