Broken Part on Boiler

April 23rd, 2018 at 01:58 am

F and I walked into the garage today on our way to the grocery store and smelled gas! Yikes! I called D who was out on a run, and left the garage door open to air it out.

He called the Gas Company and they came right away. They red tagged our boiler, but let us know that it was just the pilot light that is broken, not any other part (he checked everything) and told us to get a reputable plumber who wouldn't try to fix other things that aren't broken.

Luckily it's warm here now and we don't need our boiler. We use two plumbers and they are both good and honest. I called the first one and he is out of town until Tuesday. I will call the second one tomorrow.

Unexpected expense, but I have $600 in household repairs.

    Thank goodness for the scent they add to natural gas! Sounds like a possible easy repair.

    Glad you are safe!

    It's great you have two good plumbers who won't try to cheat you. Glad the service guy gave you a heads up as well.
