When you need a gas line location service for your private gas line there is no better choice than Rush Locates. Natural gas lines and propane lines made of metal or with a tracer wire can be located and marked. To locate private propane lines to a house or propane tank there has to be a tracer wire or the pipe must be a rigid steel.
A private gas line might run to your home from a propane tank, to a grill, outbuilding, pool heater, or addition. Sometimes gas lines can do unexpected things but most often you just want to make sure you are clear of where it is buried.
811, the free public location service, won’t locate past a gas meter and won’t locate lines from propane tanks. We can locate your gas line for you so you can stay safe while working. We will come out and meet with you onsite to explain how the machines work and what they are indicating while we mark the site.
