Re: Bonding propane piping question
I wonder why they didn't change it when they replaced the electrical panel and furnace.

There's always a chance the appliance electrical ground is either nonexistent, or at the very least if it's there, it's inadequate.
Pipe bonding requires at minimum a number 6 copper conductor, the 14 or 12 GA electric ground doesn't cut it.

I pulled a permit
Did the install myself to code - bonded to utility ground here
Had it inspected
Sell the place some day with nothing hanging over my head - code all the way...

said by jack b:There was no ground for the furnace when I bought the place, but the installer ran new romex to the panel. Same guys replaced the old fuse panel with a new one, and ran a #6 ground across the basement to the street side of the water meter. But they didn't bond the gas line
