*** Important: Gas Repair & Installation Permitting
Any time gas lines are installed or repaired in your home, the gas company needs to shut off the supply completely. There are specific requirements from Consolidated Edison and National Grid about gas repairs and new installations. Before service can start or be restored, the gas system should be inspected by the gas company. The local municipalities will also require permitting and inspection.
Only a plumber authorized to work on gas systems is allowed to test, repair, or install gas systems. The license indicates they are a gas plumber. If these requirements aren't followed, gas will not be supplied to the home.

Preventing Gas Leaks With Repair & Maintenance
Air or water in the home is cooler - If your hot water or furnace isn't heating as well as it normally does, call Bluewater, Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning for gas line repairs in Queens or our other service areas. This is a sign that there is a blockage which isn't letting enough gas through the lines to produce the normal amount of heat.
- Thinning gas lines - As a gas line ages, it will thin out in certain areas. Frequently, thinning occurs near the joints before the other sections. The seals, or gaskets, also often thin out where gas lines are connected to appliances.
- Obvious damage - You may see dents, bends, warping, rust, or other irregularities. The gas lines will need repair or replacement so future leaks don't occur.
- Dead plants in the home - If you have indoor plants that die, it could be due to a gas leak nearby. Sometimes there are medium to large dead patches in the landscaping which die off for no obvious reason.
- Noises - A hissing or whispering noise IS something to worry about.
- Smells - Natural gas has no odor, but there is an additive infused to make it smell a bit like rotten eggs. If you get a whiff of something foul smelling, better to be safe than sorry and act as if you do.
