It goes without saying that gas leaks are a serious and potentially dangerous problem. The associated risks include negative health side effects or severe household damage such as fire or an explosion.
Often your nose will react to natural gas first with the familiar odour of sulphur or rotten eggs. It’s a natural warning sign that should always be acknowledged for your safety.
However, finding gas leaks can often be much harder. This is why it’s best to organise immediate help from professional gas fitters like Jim’s Plumbing.

With fast service in 1 hour* and no additional after hours fees, you can also feel confident about calling Jim’s any time or day of the week. Our friendly technicians will arrive immediately to get the job done and ensure your home is 100 per cent safe.
We provide on the spot gas fitting repairs and lifelong solutions for a positive experience. So if you suspect a gas leak, contact Jim’s Plumbing ASAP.
Signs of a Gas Leak
While Jim’s Plumbing is available for all of your gas plumbing services, unless you call us for a routine gas fitting check-up, you will most likely discover the first sign of a leak.
Therefore it’s incredibly beneficial you know what gas leaks look, smell or sound like. The warning signs can include:
- A nasty odour that has been described as rotten cabbage or eggs, dirty socks or sulphur. This is from a harmless gas called mercaptan which has been added to odourless natural gas.
- Health side effects such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, irritation or difficulty breathing.
- Hissing or whistling sounds coming from gas pipes
- Plants or grass which has unexpectedly died
- Physical damage to the gas meter or pipe
- A weakened pilot light flame
Depending on the gas appliances you have the signs could be different. Your heater could show a more visible spluttering pilot light than a hot water system would. You are also more likely to notice a leak from your oven than the hot water heater tucked away at the back of the house.
We recommend you call an experienced plumber or gas fitter for annual gas appliance servicing to help uncover any potential problems. Jim’s Plumbing can easily keep you and your family safe with on the spot gas leak detection and repairs.
