Flexible CSST gas pipe question


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I was at a home today with a gas FP in the basement. It had the yellow Flexible CSST gas pipe simply going through an adjacent wall (from the unfinished section of the basement), traveling un-protected and un-secured to the wall (just laying in the corner by the base molding) for about 15 feet before entering the FP. I am not familiar with the code or rules as far as this goes. Should it be boxed in or protected in some other way? Thanks.

Lately I've been adding this document along with some boilerplate to the report when there's CSST:

It's from a recent thread.


How does that document help your client? It's more like advertising for the attorney, IMVHO.

It's more of a CYA measure, until the verdict on CSST is out.

GasTite has a wealth of information on CSST.


They have also introduced a new product called FlashShield. They had it at InspectionWorld at their booth. It has a couple of layers along with a mesh sleeve that is suppose to dissipate any electrical charges along with any heat.

The key with CSST is in bonding it.
