      We have not used drip legs down here in a long time unless the manufacturer calls for them.

          We have to pipe drip legs. No close nipples allowed either

            Something as of late has improved your sarcasm drastically.

            Now if you would only realize that I'm more right than you.

            I've checked drip legs many times and never found anything in them.

              I still put in drip legs, and when I cut into an over head horzontil line to run a branch I always point the tee up then street 90º in the tee to the direction of the run.

                2006 IFGC section 403.4.2 Steel
                Refers to standard ASTM A 53

                Commentary says-
                Steel pipe must be schedule 40 or heavier, must comply with one of the listed standards and can be black iron or galvanized. Contrary to popular belief, natural gas does not adversly react with zinc coating on galvanized pipe.

                  ron, i've always been under the impression that street 90's are not legal due to the restriction of the male opening. sort of like a full port valve and a standard port valve.

                    A street 90º opening is the same diameter as the pipe.. at least I think so. Now I need to go to the truck and grab a street 90º and a nipple and measure them with me vernier caliper.

                        not even close without the calipers

                        they're cast and have a much thicker wall.

                          Lets see there is no chance? So the 600+ houses a year I and my crews piped with an average of 200 feet of pipe per house comes to roughly 120,000 feet of pipe a year and who knows how many fittings. All of those sand holes in the black iron fittings and the seam rips in black iron pipe I saw were a figment of my imagination.

                          Meanwhile back to reality.

                          I finally got the downloads and will get the code up as soon as I can. I have a really busy morning should be up by the afternoon.

                            I have seen pipe leak all along the seam,the full length.connecting bubbles the whole way.
                            This has happened to me on more than one occassion.

                            600 homes kevin?
                            What'd you do after lunch.

                            With the thousands of fittings and pipe I've been responsible for in over 1200 homes I'm not going to trip over two pieces of pipe maybe having a fire under them.

                            Galvy goes in clean and looks better than black.

                              Sand holes in fittings yes, pipe never.
                              Quit buying Chinese crap pipe and you won't have seam rips either

                                Kevin could be right according to current code. My older book does not exclude galvanized. But as we all know, things get tweaked all the time. Whether it makes sense or not.

                                So let's see which code he is referencing (maybe he'll post it soon-VERBATIM) and I or we might learn something.

                                Or he might.
