What are some safety tips to remember when connecting a natural gas BBQ to my home gas line?

If you are a homeowner who uses your barbecue grill often and would like to lower your grilling costs, one of your options may be to convert to a natural gas BBQ. But, there are a few safety rules you should follow.

In shutting off your natural gas flow in emergencies, you'll need a shutoff valve. Installing it can be a tricky and potentially dangerous job you should have done by an experienced technician.

At new gas line connections, or existing ones you wish to test for gas leaks, check for leaks by spraying the connection with a solution of detergent. If gas is leaking from the connection, you'll see bubbles in the water-detergent solution.
