    Re: Galv. For Gas

    Do you guys have to paint the galv. lines yellow so they don't get confused w/ water lines? We still have lots of houses around here that have gal. for water.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.

      I didn't bother to read the whole thread, just blow over it, I install nothing but galv in and out of a house, all around. It is clean and is better quality. (Code say's galv can only be installed outside, no steel becuase it rusts)

      As far as the yello PTFE tape, I wouldn't use it, I use pipe dope only, and I use the nasty green stuff only on gas. (key-tite) messy, but it will wipe off

        Just a note on the gas around america, back east and mid west (and now los angeles) drip legs are required. Now, thats all the same, but back east you are required to grade you gas line I heard because the gas is "wet" please tell me if this is true?

          You may have been misinformed. No grading neccesary.
          Mid-Atlantic area no longer has wet gas and no drip legs are required now(but I still install them)

            We don't have to grade them but a drip leg is required.

              Unless we know the specific gas is completely dry we are required to have a pitch/slope of 0.250" for every 15' of pipe .

                So I wasn't completely wrong, I just had my part of the country wrong

                  Actually, don't laugh, 1/4" per 15 ft in MA. (yup...usual response...how the heck you s'posed to get that pitch accurate??)
                  Mark, feel free to look it up.
                  I have yet to see it enforced, but it's code.

                  P.S> - hadn't seen APF's post till I hit enter...guess it's not just us.
