Water in the Gas Main
« on: November 26, 2005, 01:31:23 pm »
The last couple of days our gas meter under the stairs has been, making some funny noise, I thought my beer cans might have fallen on it. This morning my gas hob produced small flames. Rang up National Grid/Transco, found out there is a bit of water in the gas mains, hence whole at the junction of Moffats, Calder and Mymms.  Luckily the boiler is in the loft so that is safe from the water.

Any other stories.

I'm in Moffats and for about a week the gas pressure has seemed low.  It takes about 10 minutes to grill toast!  I did ring the Gas Board who just said to get my cooker checked which I have arranged to do.  At first I presumed it was the cold weather making extra demands, althought when I saw they had dug up at the end of Moffats I did wonder if that was anything to do with it, so thanks for letting us know
