I took a trip to the nearest "LOWES" last week, based on some info that I had got from my electrician brother. He told me he was on a job and some plumbing "hacks" were on the job running some new csst gas pipe. He had asked were they got it from and he said they told him "LOWES". I said no that cant be, Only plumbing supply shops sale it and you have to have a certified license to purchase it. He was real sure about this and suggested I take a trip to "LOWES" to make sure. Well Sure enough while In "LOWES" plumbing aisle there it was "PROFLEX" CSST gas pipe. They even have there own fittings to go along with it. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT, gas pipe for the common homeowner,hack, or DIY to purchase with no training or certification.And of course its cheaper than WARDFLEX or TRACPIPE. What is going on. There are even more components to install when attaching fittings, then WARDFLEX OR TRACPIPE. This DIY is going way to far, theres is no way I want my next door neighbor installaing any type of gas pipe without any Licenses or training. I mean come on this a disaster waiting to happen. One wrong turn or missed step in the installation and boom, theres the house, or wors someones Life. this should not just be any "novice" or so called "engineers" hands. Im sorry way to dangerous.I cant be the only one on this?
