Any job that involves gas requires the credentials and expertise of licensed gas fitters. Under the law, gas appliance installations, conversions, leak testing, repairs, maintenance, and other gas fitting tasks need to comply with prevailing standards and policies. To do otherwise would mean having illegal gas work done in your home. Not only is unlicensed gas work illegal, but it is also quite dangerous.
The good news is that you can get one licensed tradesman to do both your gas fittings and plumbing services needs around the house. There are plumbers who are also licensed as gas fitters. So when looking for tradesmen, you want to find water and gas appliance plumbers. Melbourne homeowners like you would save time and money when choosing Blue Diamond Plumbing.

You want to first turn off the gas at the source. Do this while avoiding any visible gas cylinder leak because the substance causes cold burns. Do not, under any circumstance, use electronic devices, including your mobile phone. Ventilate your home. Get everyone outside. And then call your gas stove plumber. Melbourne homes with gas appliances should have this safety procedure posted in the kitchen as a reminder.
Unstable temperature, or temperature that fluctuates, may indicate a problem with your tankless continuous flow hot water heater. Do not attempt to resolve it yourself. Call a water and gas appliance plumber.
