Gas Line Plumbing

San Jose Gas Line Plumbing

Natural Gas Plumbers Serving Santa Clara County

Homeowners rely on natural gas to power their furnaces, water heaters, ovens, stoves, and more. This gas is carried from the public supply line throughout the home in a series of small pipes known as gas lines. Gas lines are generally small and durable, but because gas is pressurized and gas lines don’t last forever, you may eventually encounter an issue that needs to be resolved. Our San Jose gas line plumbers from R.P.S Ribbs Premier Services are ready to come to your aid.

Schedule your gas leak repair or new gas line installation service by calling (408) 539-7503 or by contacting us online today.

Gas Line Repair in San Jose

Breathing in natural gas can be extremely dangerous and potentially fatal. If you smell gas in your home, do not hesitate to call 911 right away. 

A gas line leak is an urgent situation that cannot be ignored. If you smell natural gas on your property (which may be described as a rotten egg odor), open the doors and windows and vacate your home immediately. Then, from a safe distance, call your gas company to report the leak. Once you've had the problem inspected by the gas company, get in touch with our San Jose gas leak repair experts to get your gas lines back to safe, usable condition.

Signs of a Gas Leak

A broken gas line can be stressful. Even a slow leak could allow gas to escape into your home, and, as mentioned above, escaped gas could be dangerous. 

Some signs you might have a gas leak include:

  • A strong, distinct smell of rotten eggs in or around your home
  • Greatly reduced effectiveness in your heater
  • A hissing sound coming from your gas lines
  • Weak flames in your gas-burning stove
  • You or anyone in your home experiencing unexplained nausea, headaches, confusion, or other symptoms

If you suspect you have a gas leak, it’s important to get help from a licensed professional right away. Once you have notified emergency services and vacated your home, reach out to the San Jose gas line repair team at R.P.S. We’ll find the problem with our special leak detection equipment and get it fixed as soon as possible.

Common Causes of Gas Line Leaks

A problem we often encounter involves the gas caps. Capping an uncapped line or fixing damaged caps requires the help of a professional because, if improperly repaired, a cap could leak, resulting in potentially dangerous conditions.

Gas lines can also break as a result of wear and tear through years of exposure to the elements or through natural disasters like an earthquake that causes your foundation to slip or settle. Whatever caused your leak, R.P.S can find it and get it fixed.

Gas Line Earthquake Shutoff Valves

As a California resident, it's important to know what to do when an earthquake hits. When it comes to your plumbing, its critical that your gas service is shut down immediately after a major earthquake to prevent a possible fire or explosion. R.P.S. Ribbs Premier Services can install a seismic gas shutoff device on your gas piping that will automatically shut off your gas service if there were to be an earthquake larger than 5.4 in magnitude. 

All automatic, earthquake-activated shutoff devices must be certified by the State of California and installed by a licensed plumber. Don't leave the safety of your home and family to chance! Give our San Jose gas line plumbers a call today and we'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about shutting off your gas line after an earthquake and how you can best prepare yourself for when the next big one hits!
