Gas Pressure Testing

When this customer purchased a new home, Mock Plumbing Repairs in Baton Rouge was hired to carry out a gas pressure test. The gas was first shut off by a licensed plumber, a gauge was applied and the gas system was pressurized up to 5 psi.

To pass inspection by the local plumbing authority, the gas system must retain a pressure of at least 3 psi after a 24 hour period. Normally, the working pressure for a natural gas system cannot even reach 0.5 psi, so if the system is pressurized to at least three times more than the working pressure then it ensures that the system will operate properly.

The next day, the city/parish sent an inspector to verify that the gas system was safe and functioning perfectly. This is just one of the services guaranteed fast and safe by Mock Plumbing Repairs for Baton Rouge homeowners.
