Foaming Pipes Can Mean A Gas Leak



A proven way to test for leaking gas pipes is to spray soapy water on the joints. If there is a leak, the soapy water will bubble up and be visible. I ran across this a while ago behind an apartment building and notified the manager at  Cameron Park apartment community. No one seemed to be aware of any testing, and I was there early in the morning. This form of testing usually only last for a few minutes then the water dries up and needs to be sprayed again. Not sure why this foaming lasted so long.

Good morning tom. Its like when you take your car into the tire place with a  slow leak.  They put water on the tire and look for bubbles.....  Same concept just different use

Good Morning Tom - that I find very scary.  It is outside but inside would certainly be another story.

They used the new and improved, longer-lasting foam?

One of the Iron Chefs was there adding foam to an entre and practiced on the gas pipe?

So many possibilities...
