Gas Leaks: A Quick Follow-Up Video

About a month ago I posted a blog complaining about how the gas company will frequently come out after we’ve done a home inspection and they won’t be able to find a gas leak that we’ve identified.

In example #2, I wrote: At another home inspection I did last month in Bloomington, I could clearly smell gas while standing at the water heater.  I bent down and smelled a significant leak at the union.  I put some leak solution on the union, and it quickly blew a bubble about the size of a quarter.  This was so obvious that I didn’t even bother marking the location of the leak… but I’ll never make that mistake again.  The Bloomington seller called Centerpoint Energy, who came out and said there was no leak.  We then called Centerpoint Energy, talked to the technician that went out the first time, told him exactly where to find the leak, and he still couldn’t find it the second time he was out.  Unbelievable.

Here’s a quick follow-up video of that same gas leak that we found at a Bloomington Home Inspection, taken yesterday.
