Friendliness is the difference between good service and great service.

Guarantee your loved ones, staff and clients are safe

A gas leak issue is like a viral disease: prevention is better than a cure. By the time you detect gas leaks, you’ve got moments to act. The open flame of a stove, BBQ or other gas appliances, or even the burning wick of a scented candle, could turn a perfectly normal day into a breaking news story.

The best way to keep yourself and the people under your care safe is to book a yearly gas safety inspection. Every single one of our plumbers is also a licensed gas fitter. We have the tools, qualifications and experience needed to assess your home or business for all signs of danger.

Inner City Plumbing is a full-service plumbing and gas supply specialist. With multiple teams patrolling Melbourne’s suburbs in fully-equipped vans, we can instantly respond to your concerns and be on-site to manage potential gas leaks.

About us

When we first set up our business in the 90s, we set three goals for ourselves:

  • Always exceed your expectations
  • Always expand our expertise
  • Always enjoy the work

That last point may seem frivolous compared to the other two. But it’s the foundation of our success. We love our trade, and as a family-owned business, we get to spend our days working beside our loved ones and building on each other’s experiences. That’s how we’re able to improve the quality of our work and deliver the best service possible.

Frequently asked questions

If you smell a gas leak, follow these steps:

  • Extinguish any open flames and heating elements
  • Check easily accessible gas outlets, such as your stove and oven, are turned off

If you cannot identify the source of the leak, do the following:

  • Inform the building manager or anyone else in your home
  • Switch off the gas and electricity at the mains
  • Immediately evacuate the building — don’t forget your pets
  • Call us when you’re at a safe location, and do not re-enter the building

Our emergency gas leak team will be there within an hour.

Important: Never attempt to repair a gas leak or install or service a gas-fueled appliance yourself. These tasks require a licensed gas fitter.

Gas suppliers intentionally add foul-smelling chemicals to their gas supplies specifically to make leaks easier to identify. However, you may not always be able to smell a gas leak.

Here are common signs you can use to identify a gas leak:

  • Your pilot lights may be an odd colour
  • Your grass suddenly dies, or you notice bubbling water puddles in your outdoor areas
  • Your appliances make a whistling noise
  • If your hot water system uses gas, you’ll notice it quickly runs out of hot water
  • Your gas bill is unreasonably high
  • You suddenly feel nauseous or exhausted or get a sudden migraine

Call our emergency gas leak service immediately if you notice any of these signs.

Let’s schedule a yearly gas safety inspection

Fixing a gas leak is good. Preventing a gas leak is better. Get in touch, and we’ll help you schedule regular inspections and appliance checks to ensure your sight is in grade-A condition.
