I need to run a gas line about 20 feet in a crawl space. Do I have any
options other than threaded black pipe? I've already created my start point
in the existing gas line system, and need to spend as little time under
there as possible. <G>
Call a plumber in some areas i plastic covered stainless corrugated
line is being used.
fast easy install.
plastic isnt coode acceptable because a minor hit might cause a
copper flexible isnt allowed here either for similiar reasons
If I were doing it, especially if it needed to follow a rather
path, CSST would be my route. Not sure it would need to be done
by a plumber, either.
Do a search of CSST for questions. As I recall, 45 million feet of
it were put in last year.
Your lowest cost option is black iron. CSST isn't even close to cost
effective for a DIY project. Cutting and threading in a crawl space
isn't convenient, but people do it every day without problems. Buy a
pair of BIG aluminum pipe wrenches, a pipe cutter (a Sawzall is nice,
too), threading dies and ratchet, a bottle of Teflon pipe dope, a
decent vise and have at it. In our town most of the tools can be
rented for $10 for a half day if you don't want to invest in Harbor
Freight specials. Good luck.
