I'd suggest that you call your local building department, and ignore
anything you read on this list. Except me, you can trust me.

My main line from the gas meter enters the house with a 1" flex conduit
connected to a union, then a reducer to 3/4" black pipe which splits to two
legs extending in opposite direction in my basement. They eventually meet in
one area, but connect to differing areas. One 3/4" leg extends to my boiler
and Ts off to my garage. The other leg extends to my water heater, my dryer
and a capped off pipe in case I want to install a gas stove. If you were to
see the cluster of pipes, especially as they meet in one area, it looks like
a bad roller coaster design. Therefore, I wanted to remove the two 3/4" legs
and run one 1" leg and teeing off to each area creating a more pleasing look
and eliminating misc. run on pipes.
Anyone see a problem with going to 1" black pipe?
