: My question is, on the drip leg of the steel pipe, what length, will/ does southern bldg. code require
: to pass inspection.
: Thanks in advance:

Bill you mean to say you can use soft copper on gas? the upc won't allow it. a 6" drip leg should be sufficant. If it were my house i would use all steel pipe for gas.Dale
