      Not in my state they don't.
      They were fined substantially a few years back for offering tutorials on water heater installs, there's a $100 fine per item for any gas product that doesn't come with applicable codes attached.

        these csst products are only designed for licensed plumbers. they were never meant for the unlicensed public.

        the reps should go there and fine the company that has sold it to them.

          I wish it was like that here. they can sell practically anything here then we get to pick up the pieces. I try to avoid using csst if at all possible, just doesn't feel right to me. I like threading pipe, it's nice and solid, nobody's going to drive a nail or screw through it and it's pleasing to the eye.

            A couple of us on another forum are pushing this handy Man to disclose the Hardwares Name and address. Now He's scared,I believe. He's still going to install CSST in a customers home!

                Thank's Rudguy , We all live diff. places ,can you decribe this outlet,plumb. supply? or hardware? The Manuf reps. have training for good reason ! Then they sell to homebuyer suppliers? Don't get it! Product liabilty insurers would not like this I'm sure.

                  Heck, ask a licensed guy thats been certified only in Trac-Pipe to install some wardflex.
                  For those of you who've done both, you know where I'm going.
                  Now picture a homeowner doing it.
