Gas Lines

Raymark plumbers are professional and experienced gas line certified technicians.  If you already have gas in your home, we will run gas lines for hot water heaters, kitchen ranges, dryers, fireplaces. Moreover, we run gas lines for outdoor fire pits and barbecues.  Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer at 206-430-1954 for help with your gas line needs.  

A Gas Line Needs A Plumber

  • Gas lines require specific pipes, valves, and tools. Above all, a licensed plumber is needed to ensure gas line work is performed safely and correctly. 
  • Proper installation is key. Gas is a potential and deadly danger to your family, home, and neighborhood if improperly installed.  Therefore, be safe and call Raymark.
  • You must have a natural gas service already running to your home before a new line can be run to additional areas and appliances.
  • Plumbing code determines the required length and depth of a gas line.

Gas Line Maintenance

Home owners are responsible for maintaining the gas lines that exit the meter.  Perform regular checks to make sure your gas lines are not rusting or leaking. Outside lines get more weather exposure and need protection.

Earthquake Protection

Raymark recommends installing a main gas shut off valve for earthquake protection. This valve is triggered by movement.  Therefore, in the event of an earthquake, the gas is shut off and your home is protected. 

Further Info

Another key point is to assess if you’d like to install a manual shut off valve on your outdoor fireplace or barbecue. This allows you to turn the gas off during Seattle’s months of inclement weather.

Gas Line FAQs

  • Will your plumbers install a gas line to my home?

    Raymark plumbers install gas lines in homes that have an existing gas line. If the pipe from the gas line in the street to your home does not exist, you will need to get that installation completed first by contacting Puget Sound Energy or your local gas company.

    review rating 5  As a preventative measure I had the old rubber hoses upgraded to metal hoses for my washer plus, installed new hot & cold faucet seats. Tanya took my incoming call and she was most pleasant and professional. Though this was elective and not urgent, plumber Jose had time to come out same day. The office called me two more times to advise me Jose would be at my condo within 30 minutes. Jose and his partner evaluated my request and gave me a quote. I elected to proceed. Jose completed the work perfectly in one hour. The space was left clean and tidy and my washer / dryer put back in place. Cost? Well, let me just say this. Any young man floundering in college with no apparent purpose, racking up enormous student loan debt, consider a plumbing apprenticeship. You will have a most comfortable income. I appreciate professional trades people.

    review rating 5  Highly recommend! Raymark has been taking care of my home for 12 years. I bought an older condo and as the original equipment has needed repairs or outright replacements since day one. They have been prompt, reliable, solid workmanship, competitive and so professional. The materials and equipment they use is high quality and still appropriate for my budget. Reputable billing. Never once stood me up, and stand by their work. Never a callback. And they are careful with my home. My go-to company. I’m a very happy customer.

    review rating 5  This awesome company came out and cleared our sewer main in no time flat. Dion was courteous, competent, professional, reliable, and did a beautiful job! It is important to me that we hire local, and the truth is, you just get better service! Also, it is important if you don't have a lot of time in your day that you choose a company that will actually show up, and show up when they say they will, and have efficient office staff to help as well. Raymark also provide their employees with benefits, which is SO important! It made me feel glad to support their business, and they are my go-to from here on out. Beautiful service! Please give them a try!
