We don't just find water leaks, we are also experts in finding and repairing natural gas and liquid propane gas leaks. Even if your gas has been shut off by PG&E we'll find the leak, make the repair, and get you back up and running. If you live in the Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, or Marin area and believe you have a gas leak, call us right away. We have a number of different methods for finding gas leaks.
In addition to repairing gas leaks, we also install new natural and propane gas lines. Most modern homes use galvanized metal gas piping. Typically the piping is black for gray in color. Both are still used today and considered to be a good material for gas piping. However, we also use a full line of the "newer" flexible metal and plastic gas piping.
The most common flexible gas piping is known as TracPipe or Warflex. Both of these brands of gas piping are made of stainless steel and use brass couplers to form all the fittings. The advantages to of flexible gas pipe is that they are somewhat earthquake resistant, resistant to corrosion, and use fewer fittings and connections than traditional gas piping. The one disadvantage is that both brands are not permitted for underground use. So for underground gas piping we use SDR gas pipe, also called Butt Pipe. Butt pipe is a yellow high density plastic pipe that is held together with mechanical fittings or by fusing, melting, the pipe together to form fittings. Butt pipe is permitted for use in the ground and under the house.
