Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

A word of advice from your licensed gas line installation expert. Don’t attempt installing any gas lines in your home, whether you’re a good do-it-yourselfer (DIY) or not, that includes both propane or natural gas lines. Leave those installations up to your licensed plumbing contractor. And we’re not talking about the small flexible gas line connectors behind the stove or barbeque. We are talking about underground gas lines leading up to your home, a water heater, outdoor barbeque, or swimming pool.

Talk To Your Gas Installation Expert

We’re not out of summer yet, but if you live in Southern California, you can expect barbequing to be in full force year-round. The hardcore barbequing family will fire up the grill any time of the year. Use the better part of caution when you decide to rid yourself of those horrible propane tanks and choose to install that natural gas barbeque. Hire a licensed plumbing contractor and get the proper permits from the city. Having the appropriate permits will ensure your home stays safe. Permits do not apply to the small stuff; for instance, installing and changing fixtures, upgrading receptacles, or installing new faucets do not require a permit. If you are installing or moving a gas line, you’ll need a licensed gas line installation expert. 

Is It Time To Switch To The More Affordable Natural Gas?

Have you decided to make the change to a tankless water heater? In every case, your gas lines will need modifying. On the other hand, maybe you want to switch your electric water heater to a natural gas heater. Natural gas will provide significant savings over electricity. At Big B’s Plumbing, we’ve completed hundreds of natural gas conversions. Natural gas is an excellent source of energy, and the United States has an abundance of it. In addition, natural gas frequently gets lauded as a cleaner form of energy.  It’s more environmentally friendly, emitting lower levels of harmful emissions like fossil fuels, nitrous oxides, and carbon monoxide when burned.

Are You Ready To Move From Propane To Natural Gas?

Has the City or County brought natural gas to your area? Have you considered switching? Installing a natural gas line means you won’t have to worry about running out of propane any longer. However, propane is a higher density than natural gas, so you’ll need to make adjustments, including converting your appliances to work with it. When you purchased your appliances, they may have come with a converter kit. However, consult with your product’s manufacturer before using a converter kit. You’ll almost always have to hire a professional contractor to convert your appliances. Your Licensed plumber may also have to re-pipe your house with larger-diameter lines.  The diameter of a propane gas line is about half an inch. Required gas lines for natural gas are about 3/4 of an inch.

Does Your Home Require A Gas Line Repair?

Broken gas lines are more common than one might think, especially in older homes. The threaded fitting on the gas line is the most common place where your pipe will begin to leak. Pipe corrosion, low-quality pipes, corroded fittings, poor assembly, faulty pipe threads, and old valves are the most common causes of gas leaks. Then there are your old appliances that have not seen proper maintenance for many years. As a result, they have poor degraded gas lines, and the connections have begun to leak, giving off the smell of natural gas. 

Don’t Chance It Without A Permit

An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure when it comes to gas. The most common type of repair we see is from those that choose to install their own water heater. Honestly, even water heaters require a permit. I know it doesn’t sound fair, but neither does blowing up your home. The San Diego County has made the process simple. It’s called a “no-plan permit,” and you can get one online. They cover water heaters, gas lines, and furnace replacements. In Riverside County, replacing a water heater requires a permit. If you hire a plumbing contractor, they’ll handle the installation as well as permits.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
