I am not sure about your area, but here, there would have to be a valve in the face of the fireplace, (within three feet of the opening), so that the burner could be turned off in case of a major fire in the fireplace. If it happens to you, the last thing you will want to do is reach into the fireplace to turn off the valve. Whether you need a drip leg depends on the quality of the gas being supplied.

: I am running a 1/2" natural gas line to a new direct-vent fireplace. I am using 1/2" black steel pipe and Harveyseal at the joints, tightening with pipe wrenches. At the start of the line, I have a lever valve. At the end of the line (before the steel flexible hose to the fireplace, I have a ball valve. I have run 50 feet of pipe...do I need to create a sediment trap at the end of the line?
