A Comprehensive Guide to Gas Lines

You thought you were insane, but no, you did hear hissing noise coming from the wall. Could there be a gas leakage?

Utilizing gas can assist in saving you loads of money; however, you need to act quick if you believe a leak in your gas line.

Should you install a gas line to avoid these costs? Could you DIY the repair service as well to save a few hundred or thousand dollars?

We searched the most effective resources to come up with a fast guide to installing a new gas line for your Pearland house. Continue reading to discover everything you need to know prior to choosing whether to hire a professional or attempting to complete the job, by yourself.

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 Pearland 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 Pearland 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.

Tips for Gas Line Installation in Pearland

Again, repairing or installing a gas line in your home is a dangerous task. If you plan on tackling your gas line repairs yourself, these tips should help keep you safe:

  • Buy pipes in the correct size for your system
  • Use flexible pipes to connect to appliances
  • Be sure the pipes are airtight before turning the gas back on
  • Once you're done, test the line by turning on the gas and checking for leaks

Remember, if you feel nervous about attempting a gas line repair, or need emergency repair service, call your Pearland 1800 Plumber.

Kyle did an excellent job. H was very thorough and explained everything from start to finish. I would strongly recommend Kyle for any plumbing you might have.

Kyle

Excellent work by all, starting with the ease of making an appointment, the arrival of the service crew in a timely manner. They were on neatly dressed, very pleasant, explained everything and took the little extra steps to make the visit a success. I have used this plumber three times now and have always had exceptional service from them.

Plugged drain outside of house. Came out the next day, showed us the video of the tree branches in our line, gave me a quote over the phone and I had them start work. Finished in a few hours and left with our system drain restored.

Craig C.

Very professional and knowledgeable. The office staff communicated well and were helpful and courteous. We had a major plumbing job done. The cost for all they did was reasonable. The service pro tech, Emanuel Reyes did a great job! We will definitely recommend 1-800 plumber of Pearland,

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.
