Background: The concept of reliability of gas distribution systems implies the possibility of reliable transportation of the required amount of gas to the consumer in compliance with the specified parameters in normal operation for a certain period of time.

Aim: The peculiarity of gas distribution networks is that they are long-term planning systems, with the growth of cities and the connection of consumers, the radius of their impact increases, expands, rebuilds, worn-out nodes and elements are replaced with new ones. The main goal at this stage of operation is the absence of significant reconstruction measures to improve the reliability of the system.

Materials and methods: Work has been carried out to analyze the probability of triggering, the failure rate and the probability of failures of gas supply systems for single indicators.

Results: To ensure the reliability and durability of gas boilers during replacement, the following 8 different measures were proposed.

Conclusion: The article proposes a closed circuit, the introduction of network redundancy in the system by ringing or duplicating elements and considers the social nature of gas distribution systems.
