Gas Service Line Inspections

New York State law requires that Con Edison perform an inspection of your gas service line. This inspection is required once every three years for customers in residential districts, and annually for customers in business districts.
  • The inspection work will include a gas leakage survey and a visual inspection for atmospheric corrosion on all exposed piping to the outlet of the Con Edison gas meter inside your home or building.
  • Precision Pipeline Solutions, a contractor hired by Con Edison, will perform this work. All Precision Pipeline Solutions technicians carry a Con Edison photo ID. For your safety, if you would like to verify the status of the contractor at your door, please call 1-800-75 CONED (1-800-752-6633).
  • If a gas meter is located inside your home or building, the inspector will need to go inside to perform the inspection.
  • The inspection takes approximately 15 minutes.
  • Customers will receive a letter in advance of Precision Pipeline Solutions starting inspections in their area. Customers who do not schedule an appointment should expect Precision Pipeline Solutions to attempt to inspect their equipment within 30 days of receiving the letter.

    If Precision Pipeline Solutions is unable to perform the inspection, a technician will leave a drop card behind asking the customer to schedule an appointment.

  • Yes. Customers can contact Precision Pipeline Solutions at 1-888-617-0510 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. to schedule an appointment.

    If you call after hours, leave a message and a representative will return your call the next day.

  • Yes. This inspection is required by New York State law, so it’s important that you help us complete this work.

    To inspect all gas service lines properly, we may need access to your home or building. We will make multiple attempts to perform the inspection. If Precision Pipeline Solutions is unable to perform the inspection, a technician will leave a drop card behind asking the customer to schedule an appointment.

    Since this inspection work is required by law, if we are unable to gain access, a $100 no-access fee will be charged to your account. This fee may be assessed each month that we are unable to access your gas meter.

  • No. There is no charge for this service.
  • Precision Pipeline Solutions will notify Con Edison immediately if they identify any safety issues, and a Con Edison crew will be dispatched to the address. Precision Pipeline Solutions will report any other deficiencies found to Con Edison, and Con Edison will follow up with the customer.
