Customers using natural gas have pipes from the gas meter to the point of use. These lines may be above or below ground. For example:
- To a detached garage, shed or workshop.
- To a swimming pool heater, gas light or outdoor gas grill.
Buried Metal Piping Will Corrode.
Natural gas pipes that are buried in the ground can leak and metal pipes deteriorate with age, causing a potentially dangerous situation. For safety’s sake, have your gas pipes inspected periodically, and repair them as needed.
Plumbing or heating contractors can provide assistance with inspection, repairs, and maintenance, if necessary. Valley Energy will be happy to discuss your situation with you.
