  GAS LINE PROBLEM

GAS LINE PROBLEM

Snagged my gas line and it pulled apart under ground.
Can't find where it came apart under there.

Need suggestions on how to find where it was connected together?
Thanks

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

Call the gas company before you blow up the whole neighborhood!! NOW!!

Then be prepared to take it in the shorts for digging near an unmarked gas line.

They do mark the lines for free, you know. That would have save you alot of headache.

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

Once you have the gas shut off, well... not sure how you find where it broke. Maybe use some water to see if you can locate bubbles.

If you don't want to live forever or long, you could use a lighter to look for the gas.

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

Also be prepared for a bill from the gas company.

Every gas company I've ever dealt with has a strict policy, if you hit an unmarked gas line, it's there problem.

If you don't call for a *FREE* mark-out, it's on your bill to fix it.

They have a nifty solution for those that don't want to pay the bill too. They shut off the gas untill you do!!

Best of luck.

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

Guys thanks for the replies.

Problem Solved my next door neighbor who retired from the gas company after 35 years helped me find it.

BTW it was my gas line not the Gas Companies.

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

Hang on a second, when you say "gas line" do you mean a natural gas line bringing gas to your property from the gas company?

If that's the case I would respectfully say it is *not* your line.

The standard gas contract (when you signed on as a customer) says they own the pipe and the meter, it is only yours past the meter.

Either way it's a risky proposition to play with a gas line, especially for a retiree from the gas company. The liability is enormous, and could result in the gas company terminating his pension, among other things!!!

Best of luck.

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

MURF
I have a gas tank that runs my gas range. The 1/2" copper line is buried from the tank to the house. This copper line is my line I own it and maintain it. I can rip it up or replace it. This maybe Ibrown59's case.

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

Absolutely a possibility, which is why I asked if it was a *natural* gas line from a company's gas line.

Propane lines on private land are privately owned, I am aware of that, all of mine are such. I have a bulk tank that feeds several items including the pool heater and the generator.

I still think I'd rather have a pro. do the repair (read: someone with liability insurance in case my house goes boom!!) for me.

Best of luck.

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

The first tank they put in for me was under ground it popped up like a bad memory. When the gas company came out to address the problem, it was found out that the tank would not stay in the ground for what ever reason. They put the tank above ground and two weeks later I smelled gas. They came back out and discovered the tank had a hole. Gas was leaking out, and they did not seem to care. They put a new tank above ground put the old one on the truck leaking like hell and told me there was no danger of blowing up. All were happy and world peace was restored.Laughing out loud

  GAS LINE PROBLEM

The gas line is definitely my line as it's on my side of the meter.

For over 40 years I have always done my own personal plumbing as well as the plumbing for my company Budget Homes Co. that I owned for over 30 years.
So I have had a little experience running gas and water lines.

As for my neighbor he worked for the local gas company for over 35 years as their pipe line welder and the last 10 years before he retired as their construction crew supervisor.
He was probably their most experienced employ when he retired.
I don't think I could have gone anymore professional than that!
