“These guys are fantastic! I managed to book in super quickly for an emergency issue. The booking window was only 2hrs and they called half an hour before so it was super easy for someone working full time. They were friendly and fixed the issue really quickly. He tidied up and left it all cleaner than it was before they came. Pricing was super reasonable as well considering the quality work 🙂 Huge thanks to the team!”
Dallas, Duffy

Our professional plumbers have the licenses, insurance, and guarantee to disconnect your gas service correctly and confidently, giving you peace of mind and satisfaction. Plus, we’re legally licensed to do so.

The Dangers of Unqualified Gas Disconnection



While gas appliances provide convenience in our homes, they also come with serious risks if not properly disconnected. 

Unfortunately, unqualified technicians without proper training often attempt gas disconnections illegally. This can have devastating consequences.

Improper gas disconnection can lead to dangerous leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Even small leaks over time pose safety hazards. 

Without the right tools and procedures, the line may not be fully sealed off which allows gas to continue flowing into your home undetected.

Incorrect pipe capping can also cause buildup. And if the gas meter is not properly locked and tagged, the main supply could be unintentionally turned back on. These mistakes can be fatal. 

Our licensed professionals are thoroughly trained in safe disconnection protocols and residential plumbing processes. We use specialised leak detection equipment and follow rigorous safety checks to avoid any flow issues. 

When it comes to something as dangerous as gas, never take risks with unqualified technicians. Insist on fully licensed experts like our team at Canberra Plumbing & Drains to disconnect your gas safely.
