Leak Testing

  • Leak testing of the appliance shall be conducted according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • The appliance and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system in excess of 3.5kPa.
  • Maximum inlet gas supply pressure 5 kPa 


After installing the gas supply and making all connections, check thoroughly for possible leaks:
  1. Turn all control dials on unit to “OFF” position.
  2. Open the valve on the gas supply.
  3. Using a leak detection fluid, check each gas connection one at a time by spraying or brushing the solution over the connection. The presence of bubbles will indicate a leak.
  4. If necessary, tighten the fitting and recheck for leaks.
  5. Turn on burner valve and light each burner.
  6. Check for a clear blue flame without yellow tipping. If burners show any abnormalities, check that they are located properly and in line with the injector.
