: 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

Hate to argue but I have a copper line from the main, gas line to the water heater. I had a water conditioner installed. The installer, I kind of thought it was odd, He said it is legal, I'd check the codes first, I'd feel safer with threaded steel lines for the gas supply. But I'm not paying someone to make it an all steel line.
