Natural Gas PVC Sleeving for Natural Gas Line Addition
Running a natural gas pipeline to a new or existing home or business is a smart upgrade to any property; natural gas is a clean, efficient, cost-effective fuel source with many benefits. Gaining in popularity in Arizona, a method of gas line installation known as “natural gas PVC sleeving” aids in adding natural gas now or as preparation for installation in the future.
Natural Gas PVC Sleeving Process
In Phoenix and the surrounding areas of AZ, Southwest Gas is the primary natural gas utility company. As a licensed gas line contractor, R P Gas has been approved by Southwest Gas to complete the trenching that is required from the main distribution gas line to a new gas meter location. Once trenching is complete, a yellow PVC sleeve is installed at the proper depth, inspected by Southwest Gas, and the trench backfill completed. With the PVC sleeving in place, Southwest Gas can easily install a service line from the main distribution line to the gas line meter. And better still, the gas line and gas meter installation can be completed immediately or any time in the future without the need for further trenching.
Benefits of Natural Gas PVC Sleeving
By using R P Companies to complete the project, the major benefit is that the time of the trench needing to be exposed is cut to less than half. Because it cuts the time and cost to Southwest Gas, the PVC sleeving saves on the overall cost of natural gas line and gas meter installation. The natural gas PVC sleeve, trenching and installation can be completed for new construction, existing homes or businesses, or sites of future home or business construction projects. R P Gas is approved to be a contractor for this type work from Southwest Gas.
Benefits of using R P Companies
R P Gas Piping understands installing gas piping for commercial and residential projects, and is more qualified to do this type of work than a regular trenching contractor. R P Gas is trained and experienced in different types of gas line installation – one of the key reasons that Southwest Gas has recommended their work. Safety, quality and meeting the customer’s expectation are the top priorities when installing natural gas line sleeves and natural gas piping in Arizona.
