Most Common Causes of Gas Line Leaks
Read more here about sneaky gas line leak symptoms not to ignore.
Corrosion is Usually the Cause of Gas Line Leaks
Gas line leaks are usually caused by corrosion. And that is usually underground gas lines installed before the newer PE material was introduced about 20 years ago. So if your home is older than 20 years, you may have gas pipes that are more susceptible to corrosion.
When a gas line leaks, you risk a fire, an explosion, or rising levels of dangerous carbon monoxide. Here are a few common causes of gas line leaks:
- degraded fittings/connections between the gas line and a specific appliance
- not properly maintaining a gas appliance
- gas appliance malfunctions
Another common leak is from old appliances or old shut-off gas valves. A damaged fitting caused years of slow gas leakage at this valve for example.
Gas Line Installation Requires Precision
The pipes, valves, and meters used to transport gas from your home’s main gas supply line to each gas-powered appliance are called fittings. Connections are the points between the fittings and the gas appliance. Installing the connections and fittings so that they are perfectly aligned to reliably last takes training and skill. An entire field of plumbing, in fact, is dedicated to this critical area. Otherwise, you can easily end up with an installation that eventually leaks gas.
We’ve got the training and experience to do the job right right the first time.
Other Causes of Gas Leaks
Aging Pipes and Fittings
Over time, materials in aging pipes and fittings break down — even when they’re installed by experts. Newer materials introduced twenty years ago are more durable. But still, they haven’t been around long enough to know exactly how they stand up over time.
Gas Appliances Not Properly Maintained
We use our gas appliances often, some of them throughout the day. Eventually the wear-and-will may lead to malfunctions, which in turn can lead to leaking.
Fortunately, you can help extend the life of your gas appliances and help prevent leaks by properly maintaining your gas appliances. How? First, read the manufacturers’ paperwork or search them out on the internet if you’ve lost them. Then visually check the fittings leading from the appliance to the gas line and shut-off valve. If they look corroded, that’s a red flag.
Gas Appliances Sometimes Malfunction
Aging gas appliances can cause problems with the gas line when they malfunction. But even relatively new and properly maintained gas appliances can malfunction. If the source of the problem impacts the normal flow or combustion of the natural gas fuel source, you could have a gas leak.
Reduce the risks of gas leaks. Just call us and we can set up a convenient time to check the gas lines, stop valves and fittings leading to your gas appliances. If anything looks potentially troublesome, we’ll tell you. Then we can fix it before it leads to a leak.
