Frank couldn’t figure out where the smell was coming from. It had been driving him nuts for days. He kept catching whiffs of gas in his courtyard. His barbeque was attached to a gas bayonet in the floor, but he’d already smelt around there, and had his wife check it as well. The neighbor had even had a go! But there was nothing, only the occasional smell. It was driving him nuts because it had to be coming from somewhere! To have this problem fixed, Frank decided to call in the experts. He found a local North Shore Plumber who could deal with gas work and organised an appointment.
The Plumber walked around the courtyard. He could smell the gas and had tested the barbeque just so he could count it out. The egg smell seemed to be coming from the wall beside the barbeque. It was decorated with hanging plants and fairy lights.
“When were these installed?” The Plumber asked, studying the brackets holding everything upright.
“A couple of weeks ago,” Frank responded. The Plumber nodded and concentrated on the placement of the screws. Frank was already realising what he’d done wrong, and the Plumber wasn’t long in confirming it. One of the screws to hold the strings of fairy lights in place had punctured a gas pipe in the wall. Frank helped the Plumber remove the fairy lights and a section of the hanging plants so the wall could be accessed easily. After isolating the gas supply, the
Plumber then began to cut into the wall. He found the damaged section of pipe. He then cut it out and installed a new section of pipe, making sure it was all secured and leak-free. Frank promised to be more careful in the future when drilling. It had been a silly mistake.
