Whether assembling your brand new grill, or simply replacing the gas hose or propane tank, checking to ensure there are no leaks is absolutely paramount. The good news is that it’s quite simple to check for a leak! All that you will need is some liquid soap, water, and a small spray bottle. By performing this quick check for gas leaks on your grill, you can reduce the chances that an unwanted accident occurs.
First, take an empty spray bottle and fill it with simply a few drops of liquid soap. Next, fill the spray bottle up with water. Shake the bottle to mix the soap and water up until you notice a foam has risen to the top of the spray bottle. Now you’re ready to check your gas grill for leaks, that simple!
The area that you need to be absolutely certain is not leaking is where the hose is connected to the grill itself. This is the area that could cause a catastrophe if you ignite the grill and there’s a leak there. Therefore, once you’ve connected the propane/gas tank, turn it on. Then take your spray bottle and apply the soap and water combination to both locations where the gas hose is connected to the propane/gas tank and where it is connected to the grill itself. If you see any bubbles forming, continuously, then you have a leak and either have the grill hose connected incorrectly or have a leak in your hose.
At Backyard, when we perform a gas grill installation we always perform a full inspection to ensure there is no gas leak. We also check your gas grill thoroughly for leaks during our cleaning services. Even though we utilize the highest quality gas hoses that are highly unlikely to tear while customizing the location, safety is our number one concern. The same should apply when you’re connecting your gas hose to your tank, or replacing the hose entirely and connecting it to both the grill and tank. We cannot stress enough how dangerous a seemingly minor gas leak is.
