Had a major natural gas leak in my 100 year old house and had to disconnect all of the the gas heaters and cap off every gas outlet and then pressure test the whole system.
After finding several leaks I decided to have a professional gas plumber come in and do the repairs at a total cost of almost $3000.00 and yes that is a hell of a lot of money but it had to be done.
Gas is back on so now I've been cleaning and reconnecting all of my wall mounted and free standing natural gas heaters and also replacing all of the gas stops and gas lines with all brand new.
Thankfully I'm able to do this as the hired out cost would come at $95.00 an hour so yes I have been busy and since I'm 65 years old it takes me twice as long as it would my 35 year old gas plumber.
Good thing I'm retired and have the time to do this and thankful it was repairable and no explosions or fires.
I love being a homeowner.
I'm grumpy because I can be not because I'm old.
The world is what you make of it, if it doesn't fit, you make alterations.
Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer. (Mark Twain)
