Westown Gas Leak Repair: Identify Fugitive Gases

Published on May 13th, 2021

Tips To Identify A Mild Gas Leak In Your Home

If you’ve been noticing a slight gas odor in your home, it is important to get the leak repaired right away!

Not only will this help keep your family safe from potential hazards, but it may also save you money on high utility bills.

A gas leak can be found by using a pipe locator or gas leak detector before calling a plumber or service provider to turn off the main gas valve at the house’s meter box.

Even a small gas leak if left untreated can have significant side effects on both health and safety for tenanats. It’s important to take proper measures to fix the problem before it escalates.

What To Do If You Have A Huge Gas Leak

If you are noticing symptoms or smell a strong gas odor you should immediately:

  • Turn off all gas appliances and pilot lights!
  • Warning family members to stay out of the home until it is safe again!
  • Call your local fire department, police, or a plumber for help!

A big leak can lead to serious consequences such as creating carbon monoxide in your home that could become fatal if not treated properly.

West Town Gas Leak Detected

This job was completed in the glorious West Town neighborhood in Chicago.

The customer called the gas company due to a strong gas odor in the building. The gas company instantly came out and shut off the gas immediately and instructed them to hire a licensed plumber to repair the gas leaks.

It was a pretty long and cumbersome day, due to the gas shut-off, the Rescue team was forced to hook up an air compressor to the gas system to identify the leaks. 

Gas Line Pressure Test

In the picture above, you can see clearly the bubbles created by the leaks.

After a gas leak is detected the team runs what is called a pressure test.

A gas pressure test is used to test for leaks. It is done by connecting a hose to the gas pipe and then “shooting” compressed air into it, if any bubbles are detected it is a clear indication of where the leak is infiltrating.

We then shoot air back into the pipe and perform a 5 minute pressure test. If the test holds together, we are good to call the gas company so they can restore service.  

As you can see from the picture below, our team inspected every inch of piping throughout the building and found no additional gas leak issues – awesome work guys!

Rescue Plumbing Repairs The Gas Leak.

In conclusion, gas leaks can be very cumbersome and costly, which is why we recommend you have them fixed as soon as possible.

Sewer Line Repair West Town Chicago Plumber

Fixing a Clogged Sewer in West Town Chicago

We are everywhere in Chicago.  But sometimes, that also means you are at the same place more than once.

Recently, we completed a sewer cleanout in West Town, Chicago.  Previously, we completed jobs at the condominium complex, addressing an ongoing servicing of the kitchen lines in several units.

This time, the issue was in the sewer lines that several units drain into.

Kitchen Sink Plumbing Repairs

Units on the lower floors were flooded due to no maintenance on the kitchen lines. We already pumped three catch basins, and hydrojetted all main kitchen lines.

The only access to the sewer line is was a cleanout in the basement unit living space.  Which meant, every time we needed to service the sewer line, we had to enter someone’s residence.

We went further by proactively installing an exterior point of access for future maintenance of the kitchen line.  That way, in the event we need to hydro jet or power rod the lines in the future, we do not need to enter someone’s residence to access the sewer line.
