Sounds like he's talking aboutI know this has been discussed before, but I thought I'd bring it up again.
I had a kitchen remodel fail an inspection today because of a rule I'd never heard of. I'm curious to know if this is being enforced more and more across the country (or being banned altogether). I've had flexible gas line installed on a number of projects and this is the first time this has ever been brought up by an inspector.
He claimed the new rule is that any flexible gas line must have a minimum 2" clearance from any metal duct work, conduit or electrical line. The reasoning behind the rule being that in the event of a lightning strike, current can arc through the thin wall gas line and cause an explosion. He did not, however, mention any grounding requirement---which as I've researched this more surprises me.
My plumber called in to the local union heads and it's my understanding this is a rule they have only just begun to enforce here in Indy.
the new "bonding" requirements.
Everyone seems too sketchy for me,
I'm just going with black pipe til
everyone is telling me the same story.
