19 Miss. Code. R. § 7-14.04 - Leak Check Procedures and Requirements

Current through December 27, 2021

A. Leak Checks shall be performed on any interruption of service to an existing system or first time service of a new customer.
B. Any method used for performing a leak check should be sufficient to actually find a leak if one exists. Suggested methods for performing a Leak Check include the proper use of lights, the use of a gas meter, and checks performed not using a gas meter, as set forth in NFPA-54.
C. Leak Checks performed in occupied dwellings shall include an interior inspection of the propane system and appliances, and the reigniting pilots and appliances to assure proper operation of appliances.
D. In the event that a leak is detected in a system, which will not be immediately repaired, then a "lockout" of the system shall be implemented at the service valve until the necessary repairs may be completed for the safe operation of the system. Lockout shall be required regardless of whether the system components are owned by the propane provider or the customer.
E. Documentation of Leak Checks, including the items checked and the results of the check shall be kept on file at the branch or office serving the customer and must be made available to Mississippi LC Gas Inspectors upon request. It is recommended that the customer or customer representative, who is at least 18 years old, be present at the time the leak check is performed, and that the customer or customer representative sign the leak check documentation.
