Gas Line Installation and Repair FAQs

The cost of a gas line repair varies depending on the accessibility of the pipe and the severity of the damage. A simple leak may cost around $150 to repair while a serious leak that requires excavating to reach the pipes could range as high as $5,000 or more.
Though it is possible to seal a natural gas leak yourself, it is extremely dangerous. If the gas leak is caused by a minor problem such as a minor crack or loosened pipe thread, you may be able to repair the line yourself. It is best, though, to contact a professional plumber experienced in gas line installation and gas line leak repair to do the job.
You must use pipe sealant to seal a gas line. Also called pipe joint compound, pipe sealant ensures that no gas can leak out around pipe fittings and threads, both common sites for gas leaks. There are three types of pipe sealant: pipe dope, Teflon tape, and anaerobic resin compound.

Using soapy water in a spray bottle, spray the pipe or joints and watch for bubbles. The leaking air will cause them to appear, identifying the leak. Once you’ve found it, the gas must be shut off, the pipe taken apart, and the leak fixed with the new tape and dope.

Different types of piping are available for use in gas lines, each with advantages and disadvantages, including costs.

The most common type used is corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST), the flexible pipe that runs between the gas supply lines, which are rigid, and the appliances in your home. Most CSST is coated with yellow plastic or a natural metallic. It is very flexible but also costs more.

High-density polyethylene or HDPE is most often used for commercial and industrial buildings, but some residential use is allowed. As flexible as the CSST piping, HDPE piping is also almost immune to rust and deterioration. It tends to cost more than CSST, though, and is harder to find for residential use.
