Gas leak is a leak of natural gas from a pipeline to an area where gas should not be present. Gas leaks can be extremely dangerous. Small gas leaks can gradually build up to an explosive concentration. This is why a professional should handle them immediately. If you suspect a gas leak in your property, you have to act fast.
Don’t smoke, or light a match, candle or other flame!
Don’t turn electric appliances or lights on or off, operate machinery, or use any device that could cause a spark! Note that gas leaking from a plastic pipe can create static electricity that can ignite the gas.
Evacuate the property!

Signs you may have a leak
- A damaged connection to a gas appliance.
- Dirt, water or debris being blown in the air.
- Dead or dying vegetation (in an otherwise moist area) over or near pipeline areas.
- A fire or explosion near a pipeline.
- Exposed pipeline after an earthquake, fire, flood or other disaster.
- An unusual sound, such as a hissing, whistling or roaring sound near an appliance, gas meter or pipeline.
- The distinctive odor of natural gas.
Please note: You may not be able to smell this odor for any number of reasons, such as: a diminished sense of smell; olfactory fatigue (normal, temporary inability to distinguish an odor after prolonged exposure to it); or the presence of other odors (such as cooking, damp, musty or chemical smells) that mask or hide the odorant added to natural gas. In addition, certain conditions in pipes and soil can cause odor fade – the loss of odorant so that it is not detectable by smell.
Smart Plumbing Solutions Inc. strongly recommends Earthquake gas shut off valve installation: In the event of an earthquake 5.1 and higher this valve will automatically shut of the gas supply to your home. This will prevent your home from potential serious damage during of after the earthquake. Gas leaks may cause fire and explosion.
