Gas piping in Cordova, CA comes with its own set of special challenges thanks to the soil makeup of alluvial gravel, sand, and silt that’s very hard when compacted. It takes professional trenchers, specially trained plumbers, and a lot of work to do gas line installation. It’s important when laying gas lines that they bend in a strategic way using specialized tools to prevent a fold that can cause a gas leak. Gas lines are made from black steel most commonly, but can also be made from galvanized steel, CCST (Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing), and brass. Copper was used in the past but proved to be too soft and easy to puncture to use for piping volatile gas, so it’s no longer legal to install it in homes. If you have a copper gas line, it should be replaced as soon as possible. Additionally, certain types of brass fittings and stainless steel can’t be used together for piping gas.

It goes without saying that gas lines can be dangerous if they leak. A properly trained plumber knows exactly how to detect leaks and mitigate dangers in and around your home. If you can smell gas in your home or yard, your gas line or a gas line in a nearby home could be the culprit. The NOAA’s Office of Response and Restoration tells us that natural gas is odorless, but your gas company adds a sulfurous fragrance to it specifically so you can detect it and get help. If you smell that distinct rotten egg smell, call your gas company and turn off the gas as quickly as possible. Call us next and we’ll come out to fix your gas piping.
