In response to Re: More Gas Line Questions
It depends on the gas supplied. In this area, gas lines can go up and down as necessary to adapt to cathedral ceilings and we do not use drip legs.

: 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
