Gas Line Repair

Depicted is our plumber Patrick conducting a repair on a gas line leak with his helper technician. The line underneath the concrete going to the house had sprung a leak.


Gas leaks, especially ones inside the residence or business, have the potential to be dangerous. Thankfully, they can be easy to detect and the reliability of plumbing professionals like those at Smart Plumbers will ensure that the repair is done safely and thoroughly. 

If you suspect you have a leak somewhere, we recommend calling PG&E as the first step you take. The PG&E technician will come out, shut the gas off, and assess the situation before telling you the next step. If they instruct you to contact a plumber, that's where we come in to conduct the repairs. As always, call Smart Plumbers at (408) 247-2400 or email us at info@smartplumber.com.

We informed the property owner about these findings and made the initiative to get the city involved. The city signed off on the work after we got authorization and ended up making all necessary repairs. Smart Plumbers can be the…
