How to detect and deal with a gas leak

Gas is a highly efficient and eco-friendly fuel to heat your home, power appliances and provide hot water. However, like anything installed in your property, your gas system requires regular maintenance and care.

Gas leaks can be dangerous to you and your property. Here is how to prevent them and how Lucid Plumbing can help if you do detect a leak.

Most gas leaks are obvious

If you open the door to your home and the first thing to greet you is the smell of rotten eggs or sulphur, a gas leak is the likely source of the problem. The gas we use in our homes is naturally odourless. A chemical compound causing this obvious smell is added deliberately to make leaks obvious.

There are a few additional warning signs, some of which you may notice before you smell gas:

  • Hissing noises from your gas appliances
  • Higher than average gas bills from your home
  • A pilot light on your gas system changing colour or extinguishing regularly
  • Sudden headaches and nausea

If you notice any of those signs at all, you need expert help. Call our team at Lucid Plumbing. We have qualified, experienced and licensed plumbers available to help you where you are.

Safety first - gas leaks can be dangerous

Ever underestimate a gas leak in your home, especially if there is a noticeable smell. Gas is highly flammable, and leaks can lead to dangerous emergencies. In fact, every year dozens of Australians are hospitalised after being exposed to gas fumes, let alone gas fires.

If you smell gas, turn off your supply at the mains. This should allow you to cut off any gas supply to all your installations and appliances in one step. Next, open windows and doors to allow gas to dissipate and air to flow through your home. Avoid using any electrical appliance, light switches or phones near the suspected leak. Obvious as it may sound, don’t use open flames under any circumstances. Move yourself and your family outside of the home to a well-ventilated space and wait for professional gas plumbing help.

No time for DIY – how Lucid Plumbing can help

Gas leaks are a job for experts: Lucid Plumbing has certified gas plumbers available throughout Australia. We can help you quickly and professionally.

If you have called us to deal with a suspected gas leak, we will start by ensuring your property is safe. Finding the leak is the next step. Depending on the nature of the leak, we will repair the damaged piping or replace it.

Each of our gas plumbers is experienced in working with different pipe materials, and all of our team carry extensive spare parts in their vans. If the damage is greater, a replacement may be needed, and we can help arrange that, too. Our aim is for your home to be safe again as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Always use this Service as they are always reliable, give a full explanation of work needed, and do a great job. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Ben who did the work.

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
