I will cut to the short version. House has sold. (maybe) Inspecter found gas leaks by shut off to water heater, fitting by dryer and one coming in from the main, all very small and usual for a 40 year old house. The first two were fixed and ok'ed. The last one is one long piece which travels in walls and such. Rather impossible and expensive to cut, replace, don't really understand all the details. My question is: is there a sealant that can be used on the out side of these elbows and pieces that will seal this small leak?
Just to throw into the mix the main sewer line has an offset pipe and to go from the outside cleanout to the curb (about 40 feet with sidewalk and parkway) and 8-10 feet deep they want $4400.00. Does this seem reasonable? Any information about either of these subjects would be very appreciated. ASAP. Closing is scheduled for 7/6/07.
