I've been trying to make heads or tails of the procedures of sizing gas pipes. I've looked at a code check book, but it lacks detail. I do understand the concept. Basically, you want to install the proper size pipe to deliver enough gas to each fixture's BTU demands. From what I can figure out, you make a list of the btu demands from the farthest fixture and work back to the service (meter) making note of the distance (feet). Look at the code chart and that will indicate the proper size pipe needed. Can someone steer me in the right direction? Thanks!
