Do You Need To Locate & Repair A Gas Leak In A Property In Gloucester?
Gas leaks are not only dangerous but ultimately lead to the lack of facilities when dangerous appliances/installations are made safe by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Locating a gas leak can be problematic and can be costly, especially when in inexperienced hands. We use a combination of pressure tests, leak detection solutions and electronic gas detection equipment to locate leaks on both mains gas and LPG systems.
Sometimes it is not possible to access a leak due to where pipework is located, or the tracing of a leak could prove to be uneconomical due to the need to access pipes and fittings that are often concealed. In some situations, following an initial trace procedure it can be more cost effective to install a new gas supply than spending many hours trying to locate a gas/LPG escape that cannot be found.
Regardless of the situation, or the type of property, we are fully equipped and capable of resolving gas leak issues quickly and efficiently at properties in Gloucester.

“One of my first duties as a qualified gas engineer was to trace and repair gas leaks. Where I was unable to locate them, I was responsible for the re-piping of the system. Trial and error taught me a lot about the process, of which I managed to perfect over the years. I have seen a significant number of people get hit with excessive trace and repair charges or have seen quotes for re-pipes that were not needed.”
