Common Questions We Receive Regarding Gas Leak Repairs:

What is your warranty for gas line repairs?

Depending on the material used, gas line repairs will range from 10-28 years of warranty.

What if my gas leak is within an appliance?

If your gas leak is within the appliance itself, and not in one of your gas lines, the repair usually needs to be made by an appliance specialty company. Such as Tucson Appliance Services. Licensed Gas Plumbers are limited to only repairing gas piping within the home and not within the appliance.

What do you guys charge?

Understandably, price is relative to the exact service you need.
To provide you with transparent, accurate, and fair pricing, we use a sophisticated construction estimating software to predetermine costs through RSMeans and Xactimate.

This provides you with security and peace of mind knowing that our prices are not unique and arbitrary, but accurate and justifiable based on job requirements. Because we use this software for standardized pricing, we are usually one of the cheapest in town. Because gas repairs vary so greatly between houses, it’s challenging to provide an average repair price. Exposed gas leak repairs usually range $249-$519. Underground gas repairs are usually $400-$1500. Exposed gas leak repairs on your roof are usually $385-$700. Please use this as a guide for what it might cost, as this may not be the cost for your gas leak repair.

Tucson Gas Leak Detection

If you have a gas leak and need immediate service, contact us 520-900-9010. We will do all we can to get to you immediately and ensure a safe, efficient, and quick repair.

Here at the Plumber of Tucson, we carry various advanced equipment to help us detect the smallest leaks. We will find it, fix it, and keep your home safe during repairs. You can count on us when you have a gas leak, and we are sure to save you money in the process.

Common Questions We Receive Regarding Gas Leak Detection:

How does a plumber find a gas leak?

Gas leak detection is done through a combination of techniques. We use gas detecting instruments, air test gauges, and conduct a manual inspection of exposed fittings.

Additionally, if the suspected leaking gas line is concealed or under the slab, we modify some of the piping to segregate sections which helps us locate where the gas leak is sourcing.

Bottom line… if you have a leak, we can find it and fix it.

How do you fix a gas leak in your house?

If you already know where your leak is, repairing it is pretty straightforward. The leaking section can be cut out and replaced with new pipe and fittings. If you don’t know exactly where your leak is coming from, the leak needs to be pinpointed with leak detection equipment before a repair can be made.

Who should fix a gas leak?

Licensed Plumbers will have the qualifications and experience to make gas line repairs. If your gas leak requires a permit and inspection so that Southwest Gas will restore your gas service, we can certainly handle that for you.

Are gas leaks easy to fix?

It depends on the location, age, and condition of the gas line. If the leaking pipe is exposed and accessible, then yes, gas leaks can be easy to fix. Most gas leaks occur underground. Gas leaks that occur underground in metal gas piping are usually not easy to fix because the piping corrodes after years of being in service. Corrosion weakens the metal pipe and sometimes doesn’t allow us to make repairs. In that circumstance, we will look to reroute or fully replace that section of gas piping. However, if your gas line is made of plastic or high density polyethylene, then repairs to that type of gas line are generally straightforward.

Can you seal a gas leak?

No, gas leaks can’t be sealed as they don’t make an approved sealant for gas repairs. All gas repairs have to be made by removing the leaking section and replacing it with new pipe and fittings.

How much does a gas leak repair cost?

Pricing for repairs will vary based on the size of the pipe, composition of material, accessibility, location, and time it will take to complete the repairs. Because gas repairs vary so greatly between houses, It’s very difficult to give an average repair price. Exposed gas leaks inside the home can range from $249-$519. Outside leaks that are underground can range from $400-$1500. Repairs on the roof in exposed piping can range from $385-$700. Please use this as a guide for what it might cost, as this may not be the cost for your gas leak repair.

Help! Southwest Gas Turned My Gas Off

If Southwest Gas turned off your system due to a leak, we can help you get your gas turned back on. Before Southwest Gas turns the gas service back on they will need to see a permit and repair from a licensed plumber. We can acquire the permit, repair it, and be on-call for the inspection to get your gas turned back on as soon as possible.

Call us today to discuss your gas piping needs and set up an estimate.

Common Questions We Receive Regarding Southwest Gas:

How long will it take before my gas is turned back on?

In most cases, it takes between 1 to 2 weeks. But sometimes, it can take longer. If you’re like most people, you’ll want your gas restored immediately. We get it. We also want to get your gas service restored as quickly as possible. However, when you work with the City of Tucson or the County, you have to work on their time and schedule. And there is nothing anyone can do to speed up their process. What we can do is get over to your house as soon as possible to complete repairs so that we can get the ball rolling on getting your gas service restored asap.

Southwest Gas locked my gas meter, do I need a permit for them to turn it back on?

Yes. Southwest Gas will only turn the gas back on to the property after the building department provides them with a passed inspection.

This means you’ll need- a permit for the repair or repipe, a licensed plumber to complete the project, and a passed inspection from your local building department.

Here at Plumber of Tucson, we are licensed and recognized by the local building departments as qualified gas pipe experts and are part of the SW Gas contractor preferred vendor list.

Who gets the gas permit?

Either the homeowner or the plumbing contractor. Most property owners request that we obtain the permit because we are usually more familiar with the process. We can obtain your permit, make the necessary repairs, and get your inspection passed and completed to get your gas back on as soon as possible. If you’d like to get your own permit, that’s not a problem.

Who turns the gas back on?

If your gas meter has been locked, then Southwest Gas is the only one that can turn the gas back on. If the meter is not locked, then we can turn it on for you. After we complete your gas repair and the city or county approves the project, they’ll contact Southwest Gas to confirm the gas meter can be unlocked and service can be restored. Southwest Gas will usually come out the same day or following day of city/county approval.

If my gas leak is located under the slab, how will you access it?

When your gas lines are located under the slab of the property, we look for ways to “reroute” the gas pipe. We can reroute your gas pipes different ways- through your attic, walls, and ceiling.

Or, around the home by digging a new trench.

We can also reroute your gas pipes vertically up the side of your home and onto your roof, then back down into the home to each gas burning appliance. Once we are onsite, we can go over the various ways to make repairs or reroute.

Whole House Gas Repipe

If your property needs a gas repipe, we can help. There are various gas pipe materials on the market which allow more longevity than traditional black iron gas pipe. High-Density polyethylene and corrugated stainless steel tubing are two of the more common types of gas piping materials widely used in construction today. These materials cut down installation time and reduce the total amount of fittings needed on projects. This will bring down job costs and save you money.

As Licensed Gas Plumbers, we are qualified and proficient in the latest repiping technologies and methods, so we can quickly resolve your gas repiping needs. Our gas line installations adhere to the National Fuel Gas Codes and local building requirements. Each gas line we install comes with a warranty covering all parts and labor.

Common Questions We Receive Regarding Gas Repiping:

How long does a gas repipe take?

It depends on how many gas appliances are in the home, the access we have to run new piping, the size of your home, and where we are running the new gas pipe. For the average property that has 2 to 3 gas appliances in the home, most gas repipes will take 1-2 days.

What kind of material do you use?

We are licensed and qualified to work with all gas pipe materials and we only install building code approved materials.

When the pipes are exposed, we use black iron gas pipe and/or stainless steel pipe.

When the pipes are located in the walls, ceiling, and attic, we often use corrugated stainless steel gas pipe, which is currently the most commonly used gas pipe material for repiping in Tucson.

When the pipes are being installed underground, we often use high density polyethylene gas pipe.

Our choices for gas pipe materials are based on job efficiency, access, invasiveness, expediency, and financial sensibility. If you prefer one material over the other, we are more than happy to install whatever material you feel would be best for your home. That is, of course, as long as it is approved by building codes.

Our goal is to get your gas turned back on with you spending the least amount of money possible, while ensuring longevity in your gas pipe system.

Do I need a gas permit?

Yes. A permit is required for gas repiping. We can obtain the permit for you and complete the inspection process. However, if you would like to get the permit yourself, that’s totally fine with us, too. There is a fee to get a permit which varies based on the size of the project.

Will I have holes in my wall during a repipe?

We always look for the least invasive, most financially sensible route for your gas project. During the estimating process, we’ll go over with you the options for where we can install your new gas pipe and the corresponding prices. Sometimes, we can repipe without needing to open up walls and ceiling, but in most cases we need to open the walls. If you need wall repairs after we are finished, we can help with that, too.

Common Questions We Receive Regarding New Gas Line Installations:

Can you tap into my existing gas line and over to my new appliance?

It depends. Before installing a new gas line, we complete a required gas load calculation. In most cases, we can’t tap into an existing gas line. This is because gas lines are installed by predetermining the BTU load (gas volume demand of the new appliance) and sizing the gas pipe for the exact BTU demand. This means that your existing gas pipes are not usually oversized. So tapping into them can affect the way your gas system works. Also, city and building codes don’t allow us to tap into existing gas lines without confirming a gas load calculation. But not to worry, we’ll come onsite and go over all options with you.

How much does it cost to install a new gas line?

Pricing for a new gas line is very relative to the home. It can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. It really depends on the home’s existing gas system. What we can say about pricing, is that we always look for the most financially sensible route and go over any options with you while onsite to try and save you money anyway we can.

Kim S.- Tucson
“Before hiring Plumber of Tucson I struggled getting an inspection passed with another local plumber. The other plumbers were nice and did decent work, but they lacked the technical insight required to pass my inspection. I hired Plumber of Tucson based on their experience and online reviews. They were able to get my gas piping to code and pass inspection. My gas is now turned back on and I have heat and hot water! Thank you, Plumber of Tucson.”

Pool Heater Gas Line

Need an estimate for your pool heater gas line? That’ll be our pleasure. The first step is to schedule a site visit so we can gather project details and provide you with a quote. Reach out today so we can help.

Common Questions We Receive Regarding Pool Heater Gas Lines:

Do I need a permit for a pool heater gas line?

Yes, a permit is required. We can apply and get the permit for you, or if you’d prefer to get the permit yourself, that is totally fine with us.

How much does a new pool heater gas line cost?

Pricing is relative to the home. It can vary based on the size of gas pipe required, the BTU demand, the location of the new pipe, the material used, and the length of gas piping needed. Generally, pool gas line installations will range from $40-$80 per foot of new gas pipe.

Do you guys also install the pool heater?

No, we don’t install the actual pool heater, that is completed by the pool company. However, we can install the gas line and make the connection directly to the pool heater.

What material do you use for the gas line?

Since pool heaters are located outside, we most commonly use high density polyethylene (PE) gas pipe. This is the most commonly found pipe used for gas pool heater lines throughout Tucson. This material is building code approved, cost effective, and won’t corrode like its metal (black iron) counterpart. It also has a longer warranty than metal (black iron) gas pipe materials.
