    I think 99% of all the gas underground pipe going in around here is poly with an anodeless riser. In case of your question I would opt for primed and wrap. There's my half a cent.

      I'm assuming you are referring to black X-Tru Coat pipe? Some inspectors require an X-Tru Coat riser. Others let you use a piece of black or gal T&C primed with a listed pipe wrap primer and taped (code says to a thickness of 40 mil). I prefer PE, but on short runs we still use this method, with gal being the preferred riser. If you use a black riser, the exposed part above the surface should be painted with a primer and finished coat.

        very serious. It seems like plastic wants to leak with a shovel Hit. Both My Son and I have each had an incident! I'm not against plastic.
