If you smell gas or suspect you may have a gas leak, immediately locate your gas meter and isolate the entire gas service.
Gas meters are generally located in the front yard of a property, near the property boundary beneath a plastic cover, or mounted on the building inside a wall box, generally below the electrical meter box.
All gas meters have an isolation valve located on the incoming gas main pipe. The isolation valve usually has a red or yellow handle but they can differ, and generally, a ¼ turn valve is fitted.
To isolate the gas meter turn the ball valve to the right until the handle is sitting across the incoming gas pipe. In the ‘ON’ position, the valve handle is aligned parallel to the incoming gas pipe. In the ‘OFF’ position, the valve handle is positioned at 90 degrees across the incoming gas pipe.
