A Gas Line Needs A Plumber
- Gas lines require specific pipes, valves, and tools. Above all, a licensed plumber is needed to ensure gas line work is performed safely and correctly.
- Proper installation is key. Gas is a potential and deadly danger to your family, home, and neighborhood if improperly installed. Therefore, be safe and call Raymark.
- You must have a natural gas service already running to your home before a new line can be run to additional areas and appliances.
- The plumbing code determines the required length and depth of a gas line.
Gas Line Maintenance
Homeowners are responsible for maintaining the gas lines that exit the meter. Perform regular checks to make sure your gas lines are not rusting or leaking. Outside lines get more weather exposure and need protection.
Raymark recommends installing a main gas shut-off valve for earthquake protection. This valve is triggered by movement. Therefore, in the event of an earthquake, the gas is shut off and your home is protected.
Another key point is to assess if you’d like to install a manual shut-off valve on your outdoor fireplace or barbecue. This allows you to turn the gas off during Seattle’s months of inclement weather.
