San Jose Gas Line Plumbing
Repairs & New Installations in Santa Clara County
If you smell gas in your home, do not hesitate to call 911 right away. Ingesting too much natural gas can be extremely dangerous and even fatal. Open the doors and windows in your home and vacate your home immediately until a professional gives you clearance to re-enter.
Modern homes rely on natural gas to heat their homes, water, and cook meals. This gas is carried from the public supply line throughout your home in a series of small pipes, known as gas lines. Gas lines are generally small and durable, however, because gas is also under pressure and gas lines don’t last forever, you will eventually encounter an issue that needs to be resolved. R.P.S Ribbs Premier Services is ready to come to your aid.
Schedule your repair, leak detection, or new line installation service by calling (408) 539-7503 today.
Gas Line Shut Off After Earthquakes
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 possible fires from breaking out at your home. At R.P.S. Ribbs Premier Services, we 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 us 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!
Gas Line Repairs & Leak Detection
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. 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.
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
A problem we often encounter involved the gas caps. Capping an uncapped line or fixing damaged caps require 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.
