    Re: gasoila and yellow tape

    The entire scope of work on this huge job ... is installing the generator.That's the whole kaboodle.
    Iv'e cut and thread miles of pipe. This job requires one 20' stick cut in half. If you think all there is to plumbing is dope and tape.. I know better.
    I am not a plumber. I can install pipe correctly. Was the Gasoila wrong?Was the tape wrong?
    Believe me I know when I'm over my head. I use several different plumbing contractors often as subs.
    So why ask you guys?
    I'm on the site looking for part numbers for dies, I see the forum, here we are.

    I do appreciate the time you took to respond to my question.

      To answer you, the tape was not needed.

        Who is licensed to run piping for diesel fuel? I've never had too.

        J.C.
        Some states do not require a license for mechanical work. But that is likely to change soon in NJ.

        "technically it would be an operating engineers job,"

        Not until it is in operation, and then only that part which is on the skid. An OE or Oiler can maintain,
        adjust, and make repairs to fuel lines, but installation does not fall under their jurisdiction.
        Any installation, testing, or repair of any piping from a bulk storage or a day tank would be fitters work.

        Yes, nobody is gonna care if it's less than 10 feet say of pipe but the rule is is the contractor should still contact the union hall (the discussion is centered around which trade would do this right) and advise them of the work. They decide if they wish to wave this particular job, or send out a man for one day, which I would doubt for a foot or two of pipe.

            I would think electricians would be pretty religious about that. Burrs on the inside of your conduit would spell trouble.

                Hello there, I have done my fair share of diesel fuel piping on back up generators. I have always used Black Permatex on all threads. As for whose work it is in the union world it the operating engineers after the valve train and the steamfitters work from the tank to the day tank to the valve train. At the time of start up there are operating engineer, electricians and fitters onsite.
