One of the most common ways to detect a gas leak is by its smell. Gas leaks have an extremely strong odour. Another way to narrow in on where the gas is leaking from the pipe is by using a soap solution to determine the exit point.
After making up the solution, apply it to the welded connection on the LPG pipes this will confirm/uncover if there is a leak. The team at All Day Plumbing also have all the equipment to detect and diagnose a gas leak. In instances where the gas leak is present at the valve the soap test may not work and at this point you will need to call in the professionals.
