Gas Piping – Not a DIY Job!

Did you know that plumbers can fix more than just water pipes, but gas pipes as well? For many homeowners who want to install a new gas fixture to their home, or need emergency repairs they don’t know who to call. Some adventuresome homeowners may even attempt to perform the work themselves. Unfortunately, many find the project to be a lot more complicated, time-consuming, and even dangerous than they originally anticipated.


Poorly installed gas piping can cause damage to appliances and can lead to leaks. Proper installation and sizing of gas piping are essential to the function of the appliance.

Gas piping installation requires a permit and inspection. The entity that governs the permitting process varies from city to city. Make sure that you have a discussion about permitting with your plumber prior to beginning work because permit fees also vary in price from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.


Gas leaks can be a life-threatening hazard and can result in poisoning, fires, or even devastating explosions. It is a much more exacting job than water piping due to the unwieldy and heavy nature of the material, and the precision required during the measuring and threading to do the job correctly.
