You smell gas and have called the gas company and they have determined you have a leak and turned your gas off. The Gas Company tells you to call a plumber they can’t fix it. The gas company is a public utility company and cannot make repairs to the gas system on the homeowners side of the service meter.

  1. I HAD MY GAS SHUT OFF DUE TO A LEAK NEAR MY GAS METER. I CALLED AROUND AND GOT HORRIBLE QUOTES OR TERRIBLE REASONS WHY THEY COULDNT OR WOULDNT COME OUT. I CALLED ALL AROUND PLUMBING AND THEY WERE NOT ONLY PROFESSIONAL AND HELPFUL THEY GAVE ME A QUOTE OVER THE PHONE THAT WAS MORE THAN FAIR. TWO PLUMBERS WERE OUT TO MY HOUSE WITHIN AN HOUR AND HAD LOCATED THE LEAK WITHIN 20 MIN. I WAS IMPRESSED. THEY SHOWED ME EVERYTHING THEY WERE DOING AND HAD NO PROBLEM WITH ME WATCHING THE REPAIR BEING MADE. ONCE THEY FIXED THE LEAK THEY TESTED MY WHOLE GAS SYSTEM AND FOUND NO MORE LEAKS. I WAS ABLE TO GET MY GAS BACK ON THAT DAY. I WANTED TO SHARE THIS STORY WITH OTHER FAMILIES THAT NEED PLUMBERS. THESES GUYS ARE GREAT! I AM HAPPY I CHOSE THEM. THANKS ALL AROUND PLUMBING!!!!!
