Bonding the utility gas line


Recommended Posts

There's this wire that's wrapped around the gas riser feeding today's house. It's just dangling there, having risen out of the earth along with the pipe.

Is it supposed to be bonded?

That is a tracer wire to help locate the buried plastic pipe, not a bonding wire.

Interesting timing on this post - I just recieved an e-mail from a customer complaining that the gas meter ground wire was not connected.

Thread Drift - This is a good example on why I like my customers to attend the inspection, so they can ask these questions during the inspection and not complain about some none issue later.

Yep ... my house was built in 1982 and it has poly. Discovered one of the two risers for my line had failed and I was responsible for the cost to replaced with a new/better riser.

A bit of an increase in the budget to a gas line change when adding a gas cooktop two years ago for the kitchen.
