Gas Line Plumber In San Jose

Natural gas is the purest and one of the most clean-burning fuels, commonly used in residences and commercial establishments all over the world. However, natural gas is also dangerous as it is highly explosive, so it can be fatal when not handled properly.

Even a small leak in a gas line can be dangerous, as gas can build up over time and eventually cause an explosion. While this risk is relatively low, it’s a reminder of the importance of good maintenance on all plumbing lines. If you suspect the plumbing lines in your facility are at risk, be proactive and have the lines inspected by a qualified gas line plumber in San Jose.

Our Specialties:

  • Residential Gas Testing – When it comes to gas testing we are the best company to get it done safely to protect you and your family! It is super important prior to test any gas system that you disconnect each appliance and shut the gas off to the house. Once all appliances are disconnected we then perform an air test on your entire gas system to ensure there are no leaks anywhere. If it does leak, we go around to any visible fittings to try and locate it. Safety is our core value to you and your home!
  • Residential Gas Leak Detection – When it comes to trying to locate a gas leak throughout a home or outside of a home, we have multiple ways to try and identify where it’s coming from. The first way is to perform a gas pressure test and pump up the system double what it normally is so we will hear it and or see the bubble forming at the fitting. A lot of older homes have old grease valves for the shut-offs on appliances which is the main cause for leaks. Call us and we will guarantee to find it or we will provide you a solution to stop the leak.
  • Earthquake Gas shutoff Valve Installation – We are all super blessed to be able to say we live in the Silicon Valley of California. But with that being said, we do have our wonderful earthquakes and we want to ensure that when the next big one happens we can protect you and your home and your investments! So let Bueno Plumbing prepare you and your family and install an earthquake shut-off valve for a very small price.
  • Gas Line Repairs – Prior to making any spot repair on a gas system we always perform a whole-house gas test. Once we make the repair on the line we then perform another whole house gas test to make sure the repair is holding. Gas line repairs have recently made a new piece of machinery that we have here that allows us to cut into any galvanized line and make a spot repair whether it is leaking right in the middle of the pipe and/or fitting.
  • Outdoor gas and BBQ/Firepit Installations and Upgrades – Let your dream backyard be a realization! We have done countless amounts of gas lines to multiple fire features in the backyard to make your own beautiful backyard oasis. We take all necessary steps to run a new gas line to make sure the piping we install is sized correctly for all the gas appliances. We also install tracer wire with each line, so in the future, you will always know where it is located at. Call us for an appointment.
  • Complete Gas Re-pipes – Here at Bueno Plumbing, we are certified to work on all kinds of gas piping. There are 3 main types of gas piping that can be installed -the most common is galvanized pipes, trec pipe, or poly piping. When performing a complete gas repipe we start at the gas service manifold with a new earthquake shutoff valve. We size your entire gas system accordingly to make sure each gas appliance has plenty enough gas. Gas only comes into your home at 7PSI which is really low. So it is crucial to make sure you’re not starving each gas appliance when others are being run. We install new shut-off valves and supply lines for each fixture and perform gas pressure tests to ensure all work plumbed doesn’t leak at all.

Gas Leak & Safety

Perhaps the plumbing in your building is old, or environmental factors have potentially caused damage. Compromising on maintenance not only puts your building occupants at risk, but can lead to downtime for your business in the event of a code violation from your municipal authority. 

First and foremost, if you ever suspect a gas leak, leave the building immediately. Using the phone, turning on a light switch, or operating any electrical device can create a spark and ignite the gas. In its natural state, natural gas is odorless, but the addition of a sulfur odor provides a sensory alert in the event of a gas leak. 

Once you’re safely away from a possible leak, call 911 from a safe location. 

Gas Lines

Gas line testing and repairs are not a do-it-yourself job. A professional gas line plumber in San Jose has the expertise and the right equipment to test and repair gas lines, so call an expert to have the job done right. If gas service to a building has been discontinued and has been plugged, tagged, or pulled by a municipality, a gas test – along with any necessary repairs – must be performed by a licensed plumber before service can be restored. 

A permit is typically required for a gas test, and testing is done by applying a pressure gauge and monitoring the pressure of the system. The cost of any necessary repairs will not be included in the cost of the test, and are typically billed according to time and materials. A reputable plumbing company will provide a quote before any repairs begin. 

Don’t wait for an emergency. If you believe your building may be at risk, make a small investment now to ensure the safety of everyone in your building, and put your mind at ease. Call (408) 317-7137 today for gas line installation, repair, and other service that you may need!
