when gas goes bad

There is an old wives tale that goes “When a LPG bottle is getting low you get a slight smell of gas.”

This is totally incorrect. If you can smell gas in your kitchen, at your bottles or anywhere - chances are you have a gas leak.

Two serious incidents of gas explosions during the week on the Central NSW coast and suburbs of Sydney show how dangerous gas leaks can be. If you suspect a leak, turn off your bottles or gas meter, call a REGISTERED GASFITTER- Not a plumber!

However, if your gas bottle is getting low the gas mixture changes to have more Butane mixed with the Propane. Butane is heavier and sits at the bottom of the bottle. With this mixture a slightly different odour is given off from the combusted gas at your cooktop. It is not dangerous. If the smell continues when you’re not using your cooktop, you will have a leak- again- call a REGISTERED GASFITTER- Not a plumber!

  • "Doc" is always on time and does a great job keeping my restaurant going! Reliable and reasonably priced.
  • Highly recommended! Doc is a total professional who delivered great service.
  • I had one of those stupid out of hours accidents where you're doing a simple gardening job, and you swing the maddock through a water pipe that isn't meant to be there. Water everywhere, late Saturday afternoon, what are you going to do? I googled for a local plumber, and Doc was the first one I found who answered the phone. He was around in less than 1 hour, and fixed it in about 15 mins. Charged a fair price, delivered great service. I would recommend him to anyone.
