For a reasonable yearly cost, you can ensure peace of mind, and stay within the law. Here, we outline all the stages of a gas safety check and tell you exactly what to expect.

A tightness test involves testing all gas appliances (inclusive of pipework, appliances and the meter control) from the gas meter test-point, to ensure there is no gas escape outside of the legal limits. This comprises of;

This ensures that the meter control is not allowing gas through when it is the off position.

Stabilization Test

After a successful let-by test, the stabilization test is performed. This ensures stabilization of the gauge to maintain an accurate reading.

The tightness test involves observing the test gauge for a further 2 minutes to make sure there is no drop in pressure outside of the current regulations and there is no apparent smell of gas, which would clearly indicate a leak.
