Do you suspect you have a guess leak on your boat?

Gas leaks are potentially dangerous. Only licensed gas fitters can repair a gas leak. 

Leaking LPG gas bottles, gas pipes or appliances are extremely dangerous and can be potentially life-threatening. That is why we offer 1-hour emergency response for any gas leak as they must be taken seriously.

 

A gas leak should be attended to immediately as even the smallest gas leak has potential health and safety issues. If you suspect you have a gas leak do not hesitate you need to:

  •  turn off the gas at your LPG cylinder

  • shut down all gas and electrical appliances including any gas pilot lights

  • open all doors and windows for ventilation if it is safe to do so

  • extinguish all naked flames and do not smoke

Once isolated then contact us immediately to attend to its repair but do not use your mobile phone inside to call us as it could generate a spark. A gas leak will only ever get worse it will never go away.
