GAS BBQ

Natural gas is the most economical way to BBQ at home, bottled gas is around 4 X more expensive than natural gas. If your home is connected to natural gas already, this can be as simple as extending an existing gas service, or installing a new connect point close to your BBQ.

GAS HOT WATER

If you have natural gas connected to your home, check to see if you have a gas hot water system. If not, it may be time to make the swap. Gas Continuous Flow systems ensure your home never runs out of hot water and they're super economical to run.

GALVANISED PIPE REPLACEMENT

Many homes in the inner west and Sydney's inner suburbs still contain galvanised pipe. Commonly used in construction until the 50's/60's, this pipe is prone to leaking joints and rust. We recommend replacing galvanised pipes to preserve the integrity of the plumbing in your home.

GAS CONNECTIONS

Looking to install new gas connection points in your home? We can help. If you're home is already connected to natural gas, great! Give us a call. If you're home isn't connected, visit www.gonaturalgas.com.au to check if a gas is available to your home. If so, you'll need a utilities company to install a gas meter installed and connected to the gas main. Once installed, we can help connect the meter to your home.

WHILE YOU WAIT FOR THE PLUMBER:

TURN OFF ALL GAS APPLIANCES

IMMEDIATELY TURN OFF THE GAS SUPPLY AT YOUR GAS METER

Locate your gas meter. It should have a yellow handle.To turn the gas supply OFF, turn the yellow handle so it sits perpendicular or at a right angle to the pipe. This is generally quite simple to do. If in doubt or if your gas meter does not look as described, please wait for the professionals.
