Bad Gas Causing You Pain?

20 Jun

 

 

Here’s a situation that is much more dangerous than it looks. No, as a matter of fact you cannot hang a gas line with a curtain hook. Just one chin-up by some unsupervised child and you have a major disaster on your hands. Normally the horizontal span would run along the ceiling and then drop down where it connects to the appliance. Alternatively the line could be laid so it is tight against the wall and secured with clamps. Oddly this situation has been missed several times by inspectors. Once when it was originally laid and a second time with a rental inspection. An employee of the gas company red tagged this line when he was at the house for a restart of service.
