Emergency Gas Leak in Pyrmont
It was a cold winter’s afternoon and Jasmyn had decided that she was going to watch ne of her favourite romantic movies, sitting inside out of the chilly wind staying and warm by her gas heater. She was going just sit and relax and enjoy a movie, something she had not done in quite a while.
She went into the kitchen and made a cup of hot coffee and grabbed the remaining shortbreads from the biscuit barrel. She walked into the lounge room, snuggled into the lounge chair that was located closest to the gas heater. She placed her coffee on the phone table and pulled a rug over her outstretched legs.
Just as she was starting to get comfortable she noticed that something didn’t smell right. She thought that she could smell gas. The heater was working, she could see that the flames were burning, so she decided to check if there was an obvious gas jet left on in the kitchen, but she could see nothing. She went back to the lounge room and the gas smell was stronger.
She decided to turn the gas heater off as she was wary of a gas leak. She could still smell gas. She never trusted gas and was always mindful of a gas leak. She decided to call Your Neighbourhood Plumber Pyrmont as she had used their services before and the plumber did mention that they also have an emergency after hour’s service.
Jasmyn called the number on the previous invoice and explained to the operator what was wrong. As it was gas they organised an emergency call out for that afternoon to ensure Jasmyn was safe. The plumber arrived at the agreed time and investigated the leak.
The plumber found that there was a slight leak on the old bayonet so the best option was to replace it, this would ensure that the heater connection to the gas fitting was sound. He also checked that the gas running to the kitchen was free from any leaks. He showed Jasmyn where the shut off valve for the gas supply was located so if there ever was a gas emergency situation that she could shut off the gas to the property until professional help arrived.
