How to Detect Gas Leaks

Because natural gas is odourless, utility companies add a harmless chemical to the gas to give it a distinct smell. This smell is often described as a rotten-egg-like, or smelling like sulphur. This chemical is added, so it is easier to detect a potentially deadly gas leak.

That said, if you detect a natural gas leak, you’ll need to use your senses to verify. Let’s run through how you can tell if your home has a natural gas leak:

The smell of sulphur from a gas leak

1. It smells like sulphur

As described earlier, utility companies add a chemical called mercaptan to the natural gas so that it is easier to smell and detect.

This chemical they add is often described as smelling like rotten eggs or sulphur. If you smell this, it may be a good indication of a leak.

Listening for a gas leak sound

2. You hear a faint whistling/hissing sound

Depending on where you suspect the natural gas leak is, you may be able to hear a faint hissing or whistling sound coming from your gas line.

This could be a sure-fire way to know that you are experiencing a natural gas leak.

Trying to find a gas leak

3. You can see bubbles forming on the suspected gas leak area

If you suspect one of your gas lines is experiencing a gas leak, what you can do is mix a little bit of soap and water together and rub or spray it on the suspected spot. If you see bubbles appear, it is most likely a gas leak. This is because as the gas is escaping.

4. You can see dust being blown around the suspected area outside your home

If there is a gas leak outside your house, you may notice dust and debris being blown around a bit due to the gas leaking from a line nearby.


  • Isolate your main gas meter at the ¼ turn valve.
  • Do not look for a gas leak with a naked flame or other ignition source.
  • Do not operate electrical equipment close to a gas leak.
  • Don’t turn on or switch off any lights, use a telephone, or use a flashlight, at the risk of causing a spark that could start a gas fire.
  • Don’t smoke, light matches, or use a cigarette lighter inside or while on the property.

How to Turn Off Your Gas Supply Safely

It’s always a good idea to know where your property’s natural gas meter is located.

For most properties, the gas meter is located in the front yard/garden and mounted to an external brick wall or on the side of the house, commonly opposite the driveway.

Before turning off your gas supply, you need to turn off all gas appliances and pilot lights.

Once this is done, you’re ready to turn off your gas supply tap, which is usually found on the inlet to your gas meter:


  • To shut off your gas supply, turn the valve handle to the horizontal ‘off’ position, 90 degrees.
  • To turn on your gas supply, turn the valve handle to the vertical ‘on’ position.

Great service provided by Woden Valley Plumbing and Gasfitting to a water leakage emergency we had at our home.The Receptionist was most polite and very helpful in booking call-out. The tradesmen arrived right on time as arranged and were very quick to identify the fault. They advised us of cost, provided a good value for money solution, and set about the tasks once given the go-ahead. Works were completed within the allotted time and all waste materials were removed. Highly recommend

Have just used Woden Valley Plumbing for my second middle of winter heater emergency and they were fantastic! They got me in super quick and fixed my heater power. While there Jake cleaned out the vents and tested the heater to make sure it was working ok which was a great bonus! Both occasions they have been on time, clean and tidy and make booking and appointments really easy for someone working full time. Would highly recommend

This is the second time we have used Woden Valley Plumbing - the first time -after some under house flooding where we required some extensive altering to our storm water system they did a tremendous job getting us out of trouble. This latest job was a simple job fitting some new taps. These guys are great - they do professional work, on time and with a pleasant attitude. I have no hesitation in recommending this plumbing team - well done guys.

Need a new toilet fitted. Two lovely young men turned up on time, were very polite and professional. Gave me good advice and even took their shoes off before coming in the house as it was raining when they arrived. Have used before and will continue to use and recommend.

Andrew got me out of trouble last Saturday done a great job in repairing my blocked sewer.. I was a construction supervisor and involved in all sorts of drainage and trenching in some very difficult locations. I found Andrew to be as professional as any I came across in my 30 years in the industry very polite and trustworthy. I would recommend Andrew and his crew .Ps better get a new watch Andrew.

Overall a very pleasant experience dealing with the Company. Experienced trades was quickly able to establish the fault in our evaporative cooling. Further they provided a compedative quote for a replacement unit and were able to give us an installation date quite soon given it was the busiest period for their business (peak summers). We are now awaiting the installation which was booked in by their friendly receptionist.

The Woden Valley Plumbing and Gasfitting team were fantastic to deal with. They were engaging and responsive from the initial call. My hot water unit was on its last legs and with a family of five I was keen to have it replaced. I had a technician visit the same day to inspect the unit and reassure me it wouldn't burst!!! I then had a replacement unit installed the following day. The team were professional, they explained the options that were available and that would suit my family needs and they installed the unit without fuss. Best customer service I have received during my first 12 months in Canberra - highly recommend them.

I was very pleased. I had to arrange a gas heater fix and replacement while interstate. Woden valley did a great job handling the work, and getting it done without any problems. They were good at managing the work which was important as I was not ale to be at the house when they did it.So very good service and price. They give the type of service that most other Canberra companies seem unable to provide. So keep it up,, I rarely get good service in Canberra, thankfully this was one of those times.. thanks Glenn P.
