If the smell of gas is very strong call 000

Quite often people find out they have a burst pipe or underground leak by getting a letter from their council, or seeing a massive increase in the price of their water bill. Another obvious giveaway is if you have areas of your house or outdoor area that is damp or soggy. Water leaks can be hard to find when they’re underground, but fortunately, with the advent of modern technology, finding an underground leak is much easier, cheaper, and less headache inducing than it used to be.

Accurate Sound Detection:

For underground leaks, we use state-of-the-art, modern acoustic detection equipment to accurately detect the leak, allowing for minimal digging. Gone are the days of having a plumber tear up your beautiful driveway to find a leak.

Gas Leaks:

As certified gas fitters, we can accurately detect, clamp, fix and certify any faulty gas lines on your property. Naturally, because of the potentially dangerous aspect of gas leaks, we treat them very seriously, and attend to the problem as quickly as possible. For severe gas leaks, don’t hesitate to call our emergency services number. 000

What do I do in the event of a leak of gas?

If you can either physically see blurred gas in the air, or smell a rotten-egg like smell, we first ask you to remain calm. Vacate people in the local area of the house, and turn off your gas supply. Depending on the severity of your gas leak, there are a couple different courses of action after turning off your gas supply.

Obviously, if you can already start to smell fire or smoke, get out of there immediately and call 000. Similarly, if you’ve gotten home from a trip somewhere and your house is filled entirely with gas, it’s best to call  emergency service 000. If there’s a small leak you’ve just noticed, accidentally dug up or damaged a gas lines, give us a call and we’ll be out to you ASAP to keep things safe for you, your family and neighbouring businesses and households.
