Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
Using a liquid dish soap diluted with water put in a spray bottle, like a glass cleaner bottle,use a 3:1 ratio of water to soap. Have good lighting and spray all lines and special attention to all connections. pay close attention to any bubbling. If any bubbles form, turn off gas, unscrew pipes at fittings and using a pipe thread sealer "pipe dope" coat threads liberally and reconnect fittings tightly. Retest after opening the gas valve. Gas lines use a globe valve which are open when the slotted knob is parallel to the length of the line. Be very careful not to allow any open flames until it is certain that all leaks are repaired. Warning never attempt to connect gas pipes or fittings without Pipe thread sealer or Teflon tape ; if it doesn't leak immediately it is certian to do so! Use good judgement or pay a proffessional with liability insurance.
