Gas Line Pressure Testing

Gas line Pressure Test

A Gas Line Pressure Test Should Be Performed By A Professional.

Are you in need of a gas line inspection? In most cities, your energy provider will require gas line pressure testing and inspections every time certain things occur. For example, if a gas system has been turned off for longer than a certain period of time, it will need to be inspected before it can be turned back on. New construction lines need to be inspected upon completion, and any alterations or additions to an existing system will also need to be inspected. As a general rule, you should also consider having them inspected and tested any time you believe there might be an undetected problem or leak. At At-Ease Plumbing, our plumbers are happy to perform your gas line pressure test in Plano, TX or the surrounding areas! Just give us a call at (972) 947-2191 to get started.

Pressure Testing Gas Lines

So what does pressure testing gas lines usually entail? A permit is required and can be given to the homeowner, or to a certified plumbing contractor, such as ourselves. Next, we need to use an approved gauge for the test. The cheaper spring varieties just won’t cut it and aren’t recognized as a reliable option for this important test. A gas line pressure test usually runs a minimum of 15 minutes, but larger systems will require longer run times. If we find any problems, we will address them promptly. Problems could include improper pressure, loose fittings, and other things of that nature. We will also make sure that all pipe materials are up to code, and that any necessary vents or flues are present and in working order. This ensures proper ventilation at all times, which will keep your home safer in the event of a leak or malfunction.
