How to Install a Gas Line

Installing a gas line is not something you should do for your first DIY project. If you make a mistake, you’ll end up spending lots of money on repairs. That is why it is better to hire professional Brisbane gas fitters to install it properly.

Here are the steps they will perform for the job:

  • For safety, they will turn off the gas valve in your house. Using a monkey wrench, they will turn it into a position perpendicular to the pipe. After that, they will double check the meter to see if it’s no longer moving. If it isn’t moving anymore, that means the valve is safely switched off.
  • After checking the safeness of the valve next is to extend the existing line by fitting the valves that needs to be added. This line should reach the new appliance you bought. It’s important to coat the threads of the pipe using tape to establish an airtight fit. Afterward, they will use a flexible pipe to connect the new line to the recently bought appliance.
  • It’s always important to find out if you have a leak. One way would be to pour a mixture of dish liquid and water into each seam of the gas line. If you see bubbles, it means you have a leak. Professionals can fix that by unscrewing that section that has a leak then strip off the pipe glue and reattach with new sealant. After that, turn the gas meter back on and test if the appliance is working properly.
