In response to Re: New Gas Line for a Pool Heater
: I recently bought a 400,000 BTU Pool heater. I'm planning to run a 1" black pipe from the meter to crawl space then to the outside again(doing a shorcut). Do I need to bury lenght of the pipe in crawl space? What is the minimum depth should I bury the pipe thats outside the house. Is one inch pipe sufficient enough. Heater requires 1000 btu/hr WC 7"min
: maximum 14 WC.

: Any tips will be appreciated.
: Please help.

Ray, The gas line is sized according to all the btu,s totaled in the house. You need the water heater, pool heater, range, boiler, gas fireplace etc. Then you need the distance from the meter to the furthest unit.Bla BLa Bla. I would suggest you have your sustem sized by the code then start the job. The gas line must be at least 6" above the ground in the crawl space and a mim of 12" in the ground outside.You must bring it out of the ground outside and then drill the hole to the crawl space. Test your gas with 10lbs air for 15 min. Dale's Plumbing Service Inc LMP
