Gas Line Repairs

Do not try this at home!

If you are not a professional plumber, you shouldn’t try to handle a Gas line repair.

You should never attempt to repair a gas line yourself and in emergencies you should always call 911 if you suspect a gas leak. As a safety precaution, a sulfur-like odor is added to natural gas to help people identify gas leaks. If you smell this odor in an emergency situation, leave the building then call 911 immediately. City Wide Plumbing Service and Company will assess your situation and advise your next safe steps as well as handle repairs and replacement of necessary gas lines.

Know How to Recognize and Respond to a Gas Emergency

Take immediate action if you encounter any of the following signs when you clean out a sewer line with a rooter device:

  • A natural gas odor at the cleanout or inside the building served by the sewer line, even if it’s faint or momentary
  • Bubbles rising through standing water or in the toilet bowl

If these signs are present, stop what you’re doing, and:

  •  Leave the area immediately.
  • Don’t use an automated door or turn on or off any electric switches, thermostats or appliance controls.
  • From a safe place call 911 and Southwest Gas at 1-877-860-6020 immediately, day or night. A Southwest Gas representative will be there as soon as possible.
  • Don’t smoke or use lighters or matches.
