Gas line installations are not one of the do it yourself plumbing jobs. A gas line installer should have served an apprenticeship, and had proper on the job training. This is to ensure the safety, and functionality of the gas line they install. As an end result this will ensure the safety of the people who use the building the gas line is installed in.
Below are 5 tips on how to choose the right plumber for your gas line installation
#1 Find out if they hire trained help. Optimized Plumbing & Piping only uses Sonora, Ca plumbers who are qualified to install gas lines. Sometimes in order to keep payroll low contractors will hire unqualified help to do gas line installations. This is a shortcut that could put you and your family at risk
#2 The ability to size the pipe properly. Gas lines should be sized properly per Uniform plumbing code charts to ensure adequate supply reaches each appliance, or piece of equipment.
#3 Using the right material for the gas line installation, ( not what is cheapest. )For larger gas lines nothing beats welded iron pipe done by a certified pipe welder. For smaller residential installations threaded iron pipe and fittings are best. Plastics can be adequate for underground but can easily be pierced by digging in your yard with a shovel or pick.
#4 Installing the right shutoff valves. Some people cut corners on gas lines by not installing the proper shutoff valves, gas flex lines, and dirt legs at all appliances or equipment. This can lead to problems in case of a gas leak. In the case of dirt legs it can cause problems with your gas appliances by letting small pieces of dirt into the appliance.
#5 The commitment to only do quality gas line installations. Even when the right materials and sizing are used there is a lot more that goes into a quality gas line installation including the supports, leak testing , and inspection.
