You should skim all of it, but the only part you'll likely need is parts of section 4, and mostly sections 5.2 and 5.3.

There's sizing charts if you need them. I've never seen that complicated a system where I felt I needed to check sizes. Residential gas stuff is pretty basic by now.

The only time I've felt the need to check sizing is when an on-demand water heater is present. Then, every time I've checked them, the sizing was wrong -- always too small.

Hi,

Yes, I agree; but it's not just gas pipe, it's flue size as well. It seems like folks buy these expecting to save a lot of money. Then when they realize that their savings will essentially be nothing, because they'll need a larger flue than the old water heater and will need to do some demo and building to make the new flue work, they blow off the flue size requirement.

Someday, an orange apron guy somewhere is going to get a family killed and then maybe folks buying these things will start to pay attention.

Sorry about the drift - back to CSST.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

Mike
