Part of grilling is ensuring that safety precautions are followed—that includes regularly checking for a gas leak. For propane gas grills, you should get in the habit of checking for leaks every time the tank’s replaced and natural gas grills should be checked once every other month. You should also check your grill before using it for the first time after being stored for the winter.
How to Check for a Grill Gas Leak
- Create a solution of half water and half dish soap.
- Using a brush, apply the solution to the gas hose and all connection points.
- Turn on the gas
- Examine the hose and connection points for bubbles—a sign that there’s a leak.
- Turn off the gas
If you don’t see any signs of a gas leak, you’re good to grill! If bubbles form on the hose, you have a leak and it needs to be replaced immediately. If there’s a leak at any of the connection points, disconnect the hose and re-attach, ensuring the fittings are not cross-threaded. Run the test again and ensure there are no bubbles.
