  • Cart before the horse

    I get a call for a yard faucet and am a bit stumped...

    It turns out the faucet was in place before the garage was built (thats why it is to close to the wall to turn)

    I did not notice it until later but you can also see the dresser coupling on the gas line in the background!

    I bought a protective case (Otterbox) for my Blackberry but it makes the pictures a bit blurry until i cut the protective film out that is...LOL

    Hacktown is alive and well...

    Contact the gas utility co. and have them red tag the property until it is fixed correctly.


    I can see vibration loosening that up over time.

      What about the rubber seal? Surely its not listed for nat gas and would deteriorate? over time. That would concern me more than vibration. If customer won't fix definately call gas board. I would call gas co anonomously though. This might agitate the ignorant customer taht has the "its been there for x years" attitude.

        In some states those dressor couplings are legal aren't they?

        I mean I would never use one legal or not but I thought I read that somewhere....

        But yea hack town for sure

          That is not the best thing to do but think about a compression transition fitting from PE to steel riser for gas pipe. It has a rubber grommet on it.
          Again not the best way to connect gas pipe.
