How Does a Toilet Work Anyway?
WARNING! If you think you have a gas leak of any kind, call your gas utility provider immediately. Combustible gas is contained for a reason.

What to Know About Natural Gas
In its original chemical composition, natural gas is much like carbon monoxide in that it is colorless and odorless. However, producers of natural gas add chemicals called mercaptans, which give natural gas its characteristic rotten-egg odor. This allows for easy detection and, if smelled, should cause evacuation of the area to an outside location. Electrical appliances, lighters, or other such devices should not be used if you smell natural gas, as these can be ignition points for the escaped gas.
A gas line leak can be caused by a variety of things, from corrosion/wear and tear in your appliances, to poor piping installation somewhere in your home, to a general lack of ventilation. This is why our Phoenix gas line plumbers recommend periodic plumbing maintenance. By checking your system out annually, we will always be able to determine whether your gas piping is in good condition or in need of repair, so you never end up in an emergency situation.
What Are the Different Levels of a Gas Pipe Leak?
The Gas Piping and Technology Committee has set standards for grading natural gas leaks. These standards are ranked on a scale of one to three, Grade One being the most serious, Grade Three being the least.
The three types of gas leaks are:
- Grade 1: A leak that represents an existing or probable hazard to persons or property, and requires immediate repair or continuous action until the conditions are no longer hazardous.
- Grade 2: A leak that is recognized as being non-hazardous at the time of detection, but justifies scheduled repair based on probable future hazard.
- Grade 3: A leak that is non-hazardous at the time of detection and can be reasonably expected to remain non-hazardous.
If you suspect a possible gas leak in your home or business, call us right away. Remember, if you can, shut off the gas and open windows and doors to ventilate the house. This should be done in conjunction with evacuating your property and contacting your utility company.
