As a family owned and operated business, we understand the importance of health and safety, not only of our employees but also of our clients and the general public. To this accord, we strive to deliver the highest quality products while always complying with legislation, relevant codes and strict adherence to the guidelines set in place by Australia’s governing bodies of the LP Gas industry.
Peninsula Gas & Fuel also strives to work alongside the Mornington Peninsula Shire and its promise of sustainability. This is the reason we have taken a new step and implemented strict recycling procedures that run in line with our current company processes.
How to Test for Leaks
- Fill a spray bottle with soapy water.
- Connect the LP Gas cylinder to the appliance(i.e. your BBQ) and turn it on without turning on the appliance. This pressurises the system.
- Spray the soapy water onto the valve,
regulator and hose.
- If there is a gas leak, bubbles will form (as per the image to the right).
In the case that a leak is detected, turn the gas bottle OFF immediately.
Further action required for a cylinder with a leak:
- Check that the valve is completely turned off.
- Ensure that cylinder is in an area that has no sparks or flames present.
- Isolate the cylinder to a well-ventilated location.
- If it is large leak (where you can visually see the gas escaping from the cylinder) then hose the cylinder with water.
If you are ever in doubt about the safety of your LP Gas cylinder or the appliance, we urge you to contact us on 5981 1433 for further advice.
In case of an emergency, call 000 immediately.
