DIY Gas Line?
The short response is, yes, you could DIY a gas line repair service or installment, yet you should not do it unless you have experience with this type of repair. Installing a gas line is extremely dangerous as gas explosions are a serious risk and harm to the community
Doing any kind of work with a gas line presents many safety concerns. While there are building codes to utilize as guidelines; but incorrectly installing a gas line could lead to disaster.
If you don't have experience fixing gas lines on your own, search for a local Ronkonkoma company that has experience with gas lines. While it may cost you a bit more, it will ensure you are not in danger. Likewise, these companies follow all the applicable Long Island and/or county codes.
Where is the gas line?
The first step in locating your gas line is turning it off at the shut-off valve. This will ensure there are no leaks. There are 2 valves on your gas line, so be sure to shut down the valve on the "residence side". Do not shut off the street-side (or main) valve unless you have someone from the public utility company.
If you follow the gas line to where it initially enters your residence, you need to locate the "house side" shutoff. Ensure you secure the shutoff valve before starting any type of service work.

They replaced our heater and did an excellent job.
1-800 Plumber + Air and Electric has done several jobs for me. They are professional and respectful. Shawn Harvey has been great to work with. Would highly recommend!
Mark was great! He took the time to not only give a price, but explain everything a new system could do and how it would benefit them not just in heating and cooling, but dust reduction, utility bills, etc. Very Very pleased.
On time, fast working, and did a great job
Thanks for getting here so quickly and finding the issue. Also thanks for suggesting the locking caps - Hopefully this will prevent theft of the freon.
Chad C. with 1-800-plumber really cared. He was extremely thorough and made sure the job was done correctly. Would definitely recommend him!
"1-800-plumber +Air is an A+ company !!! Our plumber was Robert , he was very knowledgeable and friendly! He was efficient and got the job done !l fixed two toilets for us! Thank you so much!! I highly recommend"
Chad was very informative and professional. He and his co-worker are a very rare breed in that they fully prepared to go to work and get the job done right then. I would definitely recommend and use again Chad an 1-800-plumber.
I had Kyle U as my plumbing tech. He did a great job and worked really hard to get to the bottom of things (like roots). He was also polite and honest.
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.
