FortisBC maintains your home's gas meter, and the gas service line that extends to it from the street.
As a customer, you are responsible for maintaining the gas piping that extends past the meter into your home, and any piping that may run underground to detached buildings, pools or outside appliances like barbecues or patio heaters.
Over time, pipe may degrade or corrode
A licensed gas contractor, or leak inspector, will locate and conduct specialized tests to ensure your buried gas piping is functioning safely and efficiently.
It's a good idea to have a licensed gas contractor inspect visible and buried gas lines at the same time you're having regular maintenance performed on your gas appliances. Not sure how often your natural gas appliances need servicing? Check your owners’ manuals for recommended intervals.
