What kind of plastic pipe is the other (not yellow pipe)?? Yup, Yellow Pipe
that's really hard to believe, looks like it was underground, was it leaking? Yup, was leaking at the FERNCO connection between the two different sized pipes.
what did the gas company say about this kind of splice? Gas Company never saw it, The only thing The gas company does here is pull the meter when a leak is identified. I find it and repair, City inspects it and faxes proof of inspection to gas company then Gas company puts the meter back.
The city is kind enough to hold the fax to the gas company until I recieve payment
I see the fernco now, I thought that was a piece of plastic pipe with three clamps holding it on the steel pipe (I'm just guessing that is steel pipe that the tee is made out of)
thats just plain crazy looking.
Mighty nice of the city to hold the paper work til you get paid, wish that was the way it was around here for all of the trades. I hold all of the inspetion reports that are signed off on until I'm paid, at least for the contractors I don't know about.
