I recently had a black iron gas line installed at my house for a gas dryer. The plumber called the permit inspector and he gave the install an ok and then the gas company set the meter. Plumber came back out and took the line loose on the meter and installed a manifold and additional line for a gas heater. Problem is that even prior to installing the additional lines the air gauge hooked to the line would leak down a couple of lbs each day, but it held pressure long enough to pass the permit inspection. I can't get the plumber back out to work on it and have been trying to locate the leak myself. Tried dish soap and water sprayed on, can't find it. Tried pumping up the line to 90 psi and still can't find it. Any suggestions how to locate a really slow leak? Its on my side of the meter. Any advice?
