natural gas leak repair
We have a plumber coming to locate a gas leak somewhere in or above our garage. The gas company determined a leak exists because the pressure on the line was decreasing upon being checked. They turned the gas off.
The reason for my post is we called the gas company because of an odd smell, but it smelled more like tar. I've smelled natural gas before and it wasnt that rotten egg smell. I just called on a whim because we couldn't figure out what it was. Good thing we did. The gas is off now and the odor is gone but I'm just wondering if anyone here knows why it had such a strange smell?
Hopefully it doesn't mean its coming through the wall or the foundation or anything. Our house is only 7 years old.
