|In response to Re: Shortening natural gas line|
I did not even want to encourage them with a Jet-Sweat stopper. The key to the problem is the "Explosion and Collapse" insurance rider. Once the job is started there will be no stopping until it is completed and any "glitch" could create an explosion hazard.I might not hesitate to do it on a small multifamily building, but not 25 stories.
: : I had a plumber come and look at it and his conclusion was that only we can shorten the pipe is to get access to my neighbors space and find the joint. If the joint is in the service cooridor then the pipe cannot be removed since we have no way of getting to the joint. I should also mention that he says that there is only one gas cutoff for the whole building so we are going to have to work with the gas on (building will not turn it off)
: : My questions are:
: : Is it possible that a 1960's 25 story building would have only one gas cutoff for the building?
: : Is there anyway to cut a line with gas in it?
: : Sorry for the long post but I am out of options presently.
