Hi! Just wanted to see what ya'll think...

I got a call from my mom that there was a gas leak from the pilot on her stove. She called the gas company (Greyforrest) and the guy went out. He verified that yes the pilot had a leak and he shut it off. She asked if her and my dad (along w.the cat & bird) should stay somewhere else tonight or leave windows open, and he said no.

It just sounds weird to me. What do ya'll think? Can a gas leak be that minor that the fumes aren't "that bad". I haven't been to the house so i don't know how bad it is. But I know animals are very sensitive to fumes...

anyway. any info would be appreciated.

So if the pilot was turned off why wouldn't they be able to stay?

Unless they have gas heat, as it's going down to 37° in Helotes tonight and Grey Forrest may be even a little colder; there's no reason why they can't stay. The source of the leak has been turned off, if that weren't the case then yes, it would be a danger.

Cheers! M2

I was trying to help you out there, buddy.
If the pilot light on the stove was shut off, they can stay in the house. And use their heat, also.

A little oversensitive, aren't we?

Thank you, please drive through to the next window.

I know that... I was questioning the fumes that are in the house because of the prior leak. Yes, I am a little sensitive/concerned if there was a leak in my parents house because I don't want the house to explode or the fumes to kill their pets. Geez. I was asking for HELP not smartass comments right now because this is something that I don't feel like joking about.

Whether my comment was a smartass one or not depends on the receiver's perception. I think I've offered enough assistance to folks here to establish some credibility. If you don't feel that way, not my problem.

You should stick around and contribute to the forums, this is a good place.

how is saying "So if the pilot was turned off why wouldn't they be able to stay?" an answer to my question?
