What can you do yourself?

If you suspect a natural gas leak inside, immediately stop what you're doing (do not flip any electrical switches, unplug anything or use a telephone) and go outside. Inhaling high concentrations can also lead to asphyxia (when the body is deprived of oxygen) and possibly death. Early symptoms of asphyxia include fatigue and chest pain.

If you know the location of your gas meter turn off the gas at the first sign of a gas leak.

It needs to be stated before going ahead and doing anything yourself that Gas leaks are dangerous and should be located and repaired by a registered gasfitter. If you can smell gas or your bill has raised for no reason you will need a licensed gasfitter to test and check your gas service for faults that could be dangerous.

That sulfuric, rotten egg smell that signals a natural gas leak isn't an ordinary component of the carbon-hydrogen compound. Because of the potential danger associated with natural gas leaks, suppliers add the noxious scent to natural gas as a warning that the harmful vapors are loose in the air.

Although generally safe to use in the home, when natural gas does not burn up completely because of faulty installation or lack of ventilation, it emits a by product of carbon monoxide. The more carbon monoxide present in the air, the less oxygen you can inhale which can potentially kill you.

If you cannot smell a gas leak but would like to check for the possibility of a gas leak yourself, turn off all the appliances in your house that use gas, including those with a pilot. Find your gas meter and take a reading and then again periodically over several hours while not using any gas appliance. If the reading has changed you may have a leak and should call a licensed gas fitter to investigate further to locate and repair as required.

A licensed and registered gas fitter should be used for all your gas fitting work. There are strict regulations for persons performing work with gas in South Australia so do not be tempted to put yourself or others in a dangerous situation by trying to repair it yourself or by using an unlicensed handyman.
