You should never attempt gas line work on your own. DIY-installation of these important home utilities can be dangerous and costly. Instead, leave gas line work to trained professionals. Keep reading to learn why only a certified, professional plumbing company should handle gas line repairs.
Plumbing Damage: The task of safely locating a gas line is one of most challenging parts of gas line repair. Unguided digging can lead you to damage your gas line on accident and increase your repair costs. Even worse, damage from digging can create an expensive gas leak. Consider hiring a trained professional to locate and solve your gas line issues. Plus, professional excavation methods can greatly reduce your overall repair costs.
Explosion Risks: Explosions often occur when a gas line is damaged by random digging. In fact, the American Gas Association reports that over a third of gas explosions are initially caused by “damage by outside force” to the gas line. These explosions can be deadly and have enough force to completely destroy your home. Thankfully, you can avoid these risks by letting a professional handle your excavation and repair needs.
City Fees: In the state of California, you must notify the Regional Notification Center before you begin any digging work. In fact, you can incur fees of up to $50,000 for digging without permission. On the other hand, plumbing professionals are experienced with these government-mandated digging rules. You can protect yourself from governmental disciplinary action by simply hiring a professional to do your gas line repairs.
