There was no water running in the house... and yet the meter was spinning away! I turned the shutoff valve in the basement... and still the meter was spinning! That meant there was a leak somewhere between the meter and my house. Since there were no puddles in the yard, best guess is that the leak was under the concrete slab the house was built on. I opened the phonebook and was able to get two repair quotes before dark(one extremely high and the other comparably quite low) and the advice to call the 811 number and have all utility lines marked so work could start ASAP. I waited for a third quote by a plumber highly recommended by one of the girls in my church group.
Scott learned his trade working with his dad, and took over his dad's business when he retired. He is licensed and insured and a pleasure to work with!
First, the outside work. Start with some hand digging near the house to avoid the gas line.
