Re: Gas lines and DIY

Things have changed over the decades. My grandfather was a master carpenter at the turn of the last century when it was not uncommon for carpenters to do the plumbing and electrical. His way of seeing if a circuit was hot was to wet his finger and stick the finger in a socket. I watched him check a new gas line (black pipe) by running a match along it after turning the gas.

The "good" ole days. Maybe this step was not done?

DIY with education.

If Propane (LP), a copper line is acceptable in most areas for underground as it won't oxidize from the LP.
But Black pipe will. Codes are for this reason. Which I am surprised it was permitted.

Not sure what you are saying. In this installation copper was used underground and black pipe inside a building. What are you saying is wrong with that?
