Signs of a Gas Leak

Natural gas is odourless making leak detection impossible. That's why a chemical compound, methyl mercaptan is added which gives the gas a pungent smell of sulphur or rotten eggs.

Watch out for the following signs of a gas leak:

  • The smell of rotten eggs or cabbage
  • Hissing or whistling noises from a gas appliance or gas pipes
  • Gas running out quicker than usual
  • A yellow or red flame from your gas stove or a weak flame
  • Dying house plants or grass
  • Bubbles in standing water
  • A cloud of dust near gas pipes
  • Physical symptoms including nausea, dizziness, headache, breathing issues which happens when you are indoors but go away when you go out of your home
  • Your pets may also show the above physical symptoms

Note: Call the emergency services or visit the hospital if you are experiencing any health issues.

What to do if you have a Gas Leak?

While you wait for our gas fitters to arrive, take the following important steps:

  • Turn off the gas and electricity supply from the mains
  • Open all the doors and windows for ventilation
  • Do not use any electrical appliances, smartphones, touch or open flame in the area of the gas leak
  • Stay outdoors in a well-ventilated area
  • If you are experiencing any health issues, call the emergency services or go to the hospital
  • Do not attempt to use DIY solutions to fix gas leaks

Emergency Gas Leak Detection and Repairs Logan, Redlands and Brisbane South

At Purity Plumbing, we use specialised gas detection tools to locate gas leaks. One of the most common leak detection tools is called a manometer. A manometer can detect drops in gas pressure. If the manometer detects a drop in the pressure, we will find the source of the gas leak. It could be due to a gas appliance or a gas pipe.

Depending on the source of the leak, we will repair the problematic fixtures and fittings. If it is due to a faulty connection or dirt inside the bayonet fitting, it is an easy fix and we will quickly fix the issue.
