How You Could End Up With a Gas Company Violation
As a building owner or landlord, the condition of your gas pipes matters. Having leaking, corroded, damaged and improperly installed gas lines can lead to catastrophic consequences for the occupants of your building as well as the structure. It can also lead to National Grid Shutdowns and gas utility company violations.
Gas Line Hazards and Gas Company Utility Violations
Problems with your gas lines can result in a gas company shutdown of your gas service, which means you won’t be able to operate anything that requires gas, including furnaces, water heaters, stoves, dryers and boilers.
Gas Pipe Leaks Can Result in Gas Shutdown Bronx
If your residents smell gas, you’d hope they call the Gas Utility Company to investigate the potential leak and repair the leak before it causes a catastrophic explosion. Unfortunately, this may not be the case. The occupants of your building may first call the gas company, which could result in an inspector arriving on your property. If the inspector finds an active gas leak, you could be issued a Class I violation that results in a gas shutdown Bronx. A Class I violation is the most hazardous type of violation notice. It means that the area is immediately hazardous, and you won’t be able to turn your gas service back on until the problem with your gas lines has been corrected by a qualified master plumber.
Corroded Gas Pipes Can Lead to Gas Utility Company Violations
When is the last time you looked at the gas pipes in your Bronx building? If they are severely corroded, it could lead to a gas utility company violation. All it takes is one phone call from one of your residents to the gas company to report a problem. It could be that they smell gas, or it could be that the resident or building occupant has seen the gas pipes and is concerned for their safety and the safety of everyone else in the building. This can lead to an inspector arriving at your building and inspecting the gas pipes for signs of damage. Usually a Class I or Class II violation, and you will have to have your pipes repaired or replaced in order to remove that violation and restore your building’s occupancy status.
Improper Work Can Lead to National Grid Gas Shutdowns
Are you having your gas pipes repaired or replaced as part of a building upgrade? Being proactive about your gas pipes can help you avoid future violations, but if you didn’t hire a licensed master plumber or the individual you did hire failed to pull the proper permits, it could still result in National Grid gas shutdowns.
