    Frequently Asked Questions

    How safe is natural gas?2021-10-06T12:53:33+00:00

    When installed and used correctly, natural gas is a very safe and efficient source of power. The overwhelming majority of incidents involving natural gas are due to not following the correct procedures, especially when it comes to connecting and disconnecting natural gas lines. When you have your natural gas line installed by licensed professionals such as those at Drain Pro Plumbing Services, you can rest assured that your natural gas system is safe.

    Why does natural gas smell like rotten eggs?2021-10-05T18:31:41+00:00

    Believe it or not, natural gas smells like rotten eggs to keep you safe! Since natural gas on its own is odourless, a harmless and safe chemical called mercaptan is mixed with the gas so we can smell it if there is a gas leak. Most people describe the smell of natural gas mixed with mercaptan as similar to rotten eggs or sulphur. If you use natural gas in your home and notice a smell of rotten eggs, you might have a natural gas leak.


    If you suspect you do have a leak, vacate your home and contact Drain Pro Plumbing immediately.

    How often do my gas lines need to be replaced?2021-10-05T18:31:23+00:00

    There are many types of pipes that work together in your natural gas system. Their lifespans vary depending on the material they are made of:

    • Copper Pipes: 70-80 Years
    • Brass Pipes: 80-100 Years
    • Galvanized Steel: 80-100 Years

    Damage to these pipes can still happen at any time across their lifespan due to faulty components, corrosion, improperly moving gas appliances, tree roots near underground lines and more. It is important to have your pipes inspected every so often to ensure they are in working order.


    Contact Drain Pro to set up an appointment for us to replace your gas line.

    How can I tell if I need my gas line repaired?2021-10-05T18:31:06+00:00

    Aside from the obvious rotten egg smell, or alarm from your home’s carbon monoxide detector, there are a number of things you can look for and notice that will tell you if your gas line needs to be fixed:

    • Pipes are starting to crack or look like they will at any moment.
    • Hissing noises near your gas pipes.
    • Rust or corrosion on your gas pipes
    • Gas appliances slowing down
    • Dying house plants or grass around buried gas pipes despite regular watering
    • Drastic increase in your utility bill

    All of these are easy ways to tell if there is (or soon will be) a gas leak somewhere in your gas line that urgently needs to be fixed.


    If you notice any of the above signs, get in touch with our team at Drain Pro. We will be able to assess your situation and provide you with the next course of action.

    Can I use flexible gas pipe like PEX in my gas line?2021-10-05T18:30:40+00:00

    Yes, but only under certain conditions. Certain grades of polyethylene pipes like PEX (cross-linked polyethylene) are capable of being used for gas lines. However, due to the fact that it is plastic that expands easily near heat, they are not recommended to be connected directly to any heat-producing appliances like a gas furnace, water heater, stove or BBQ. Doing so is an easy way to spring a gas leak.


    PEX pipes are great to use in gas lines when you are transporting natural gas from one point in your home to another because it is flexible and doesn’t require as many directional connections. The pipes should connect to metal pipes near appliances in such a way as it isn’t exposed to extreme heat.


    PEX pipes also work well as buried pipes used to connect detached buildings such as sheds and garages that are on your property.


    If you would like to learn more about how we can install PEX pipes in your home, contact our team today!

    Do I need a permit to have work done on my gas line?2021-10-05T18:30:09+00:00

    Gas line work is fully regulated under the BC Safety Standards Act. These regulations state that unless you have an emergency such as a gas leak, you need to have a permit before having any work done on your gas line. This work could be:

    • Installations
    • Alterations
    • Extensions
    • Preventative Maintenance

    Our team of experts will help you with permits every step of the way so there is no need to stress. Contact us today!
