More Gas Line Questions
Posted by John Hirschi on April 04, 19101 at 16:42:38:
Hi,

I'm installing a natural gas line. I've read in a few places about a couple of "requirements" for gas lines, I'm wondering how true they are.

The gas pipe has to have a slope toward the end of the line because moisture builds up. Also, because of this moisture going toward the end of the line, you have to have a "drop pipe" that drops vertically down for a little ways to accumulate the moisture that builds up.

Is this true? I am running a line about 50 feet long, but the first 20 feet of it, I'm not going to be able to make it slope. It will be level. After that 20 feet, I can make it slope the rest of the way. Advice anyone?

Thanks,
John Hirschi
