Outdoor CSST

Recommended Posts

What would you say about this gas line installation? This was a HOA inspection of the exterior of multiple units. I called attention to this simply because it looks 'bootleg' and not safe. No protection where the CSST goes through the wall, the shutoff valve doesn't look like an exterior type, and I thought the valve needed to be in the room with the appliance (gas stove)?

CSST must always be protected from mechanical damage, meaning the CSST should be run through a conduit or chase. The CSST should also be protected where it enters an exterior wall. Typically, the shut off valve for the appliance should be within six feet(some places require three feet) of the appliance and accessible. Looking at that setup, I would have called for the local gas company to repair.
