Gas Line Material....

Recommended Posts

Do any of you recognize this gas line/ connector? I'm trying to figure out if it's allowed for this use, but the label is too faded to read. I'm leaning towards No.

Yes, it is metal.

It looks like appliance connector, it's just a much bigger diameter than I am used to seeing. Also, it is much easier to bend than the smaller diameter connectors. The first thing I thought of was that a chihuaha could bite through it with one nip.

Oh well, the report just says "I don't think it's allowed, but have your HVAC tech. verify while fixing the other crap"....well, something along those lines.

Thanks guys.

That's good. Can I use that one?

One more unsolved mystery. If the rest of the installation is good solid black pipe, why? [?]

Sure, it's yours.

There's the connector, then solid pipe, then CSST once it hits the crawlspace. I guess they forgot about copper.

I've mentioned it before, but my neighbor's black lab did, indeed, bite through her copper propane line. She lost an entire tank of propane. The dog was emotionally scarred and, even years later, refused to go anywhere near the new propane line. I'm not sure if it was just scared by the sudden release of smelly gas or if it got frostbite on its lips.
