Regarding the yellow coated stainless steel flexible gas lines: Is this material covered under some type of licensing to install or is this a local license/code issue? I have always known that here you had to have a plumber/gas fitter license to run gas lines period. Then yesterday I see the SS lines in Lowe's with all the fittings to go with it. When I asked about this I was told by the Manager on Duty "I've never heard of having a license to run your own gas line". He came into this store about two months ago and had noticed that this store did not stock gas lines/fittings so he had them set up. Being as I have to be licensed for my "Household HandyMan" business, and I personally know the owner(s) of one of the local LP businesses, I call my friend the gas man. He hit the roof! He assured me he would be in Lowe's the next morning (today) with City officials to look into this. He assured me that within this county and city you do have to have a plumbers with gas fitting license to install gas lines- -Period! First it was plumbing, then electrical fittings/wire, then HVAC materials, now gas lines. Some homeowner is going to get hurt. David
