When working with natural gas, safety comes first. That’s why our qualified professionals undergo continuous training that keeps them safe when they’re on site.
When it comes to improper piping, please contact a qualified heating contractor or plumber to install gas lines.
- If work is needed, ask the contractor to install rigid steel pipe or flexible stainless-steel piping.
- Corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST)
- If lightning strikes a structure with CSST, it is possible for natural gas leaks or fires to occur.
- A qualified plumber should conduct an inspection to determine if CSST is present in the structure. If so, a licensed electrician can install a bonding device, which will reduce chances for natural gas leaks or fires to occur in the event of a lightning strike.
Obstructions that are too close or on top of gas facilities are known as encroachment. Call 1-800-365-3234 if a construction project will be done on your property, even if the project is not expected to interfere directly with existing pipelines.
