Plumber Frankston: Tower Avenue Gas Leak

Gas leaks are extremely dangerous. If you are reading this because you have searched on google about a gas leak that you can smell, you should immediately get outdoors to an area that is well ventilated and switch off your gas meter by turning the lever. After this call Orbit Plumbing Somerville and we can come fix your gas leak issue.

Orbit Plumbing was called out to find a gas leak on Tower Avenue in Frankston as our client could smell gas around the house. Sure enough when our Mount Eliza Plumber accompanied by our Frankston South Plumber arrived on site and tested the pressure of the gas line with the manometer they found that it kept dropping.

Our Plumbers did a process of elimination by first shutting down all of the gas appliances and testing the main gas line which showed up with no leaks. The next step was to one by one turn on an appliance starting with the hot water unit and then testing the line again to find the correct position of the leak.

After the hot water unit then we turned on the stove top and all of the other gas plumbing products one by one. Eventually we discovered that the leak was coming from the ducted heater unit. Using some soapy water were able to discover that the compression elbow just before the line entered the unit itself was leaking.

A quick tighten up with the shifter fixed this problem and the customer was no longer spilling gas into the atmosphere. We did a final test with thew entire line connected testing at 5kpa for 5 minutes which showed up no leak whatsoever.
