Staying safe around the barbeque starts with the gas bottle – gas leaks can be deadly. STEP ONE Check to see that all fittings are tight and secure STEP TWO Any cracked or worn hoses should be replaced STEP THREE Even though a gas hose and regulator may look in good order, a simple test will make sure everything is safe. STEP FOUR Put some soapy water in a spray bottle or a dish. Turn on the gas bottle without turning on the BBQ. This pressurizes the system. STEP FIVE Next, spray the entire valve, regulator and hose assembly with the soapy water. Bubbles will form if there is a gas leak and you may also smell the gas. STEP SIX Alternatively, you can apply the soapy water with a paint brush or sponge it on. If you find a leak, turn off the gas bottle immediately! STEP SEVEN You need to test the entire assembly from the gas bottle valve all the way to where the gas hose attaches to the BBQ. STEP EIGHT Remember to always test the lot every time you re-connect your gas bottle. Mitre 10 have made a Mighty Helpful checklist to help you with what you’ll need to get the job done!
