In response to Re: Copper gas line to dryer
What type of joints does it have? Copper is not usually used for natural gas connections, since in some areas the gas is corrosive to copper. You may have seen brass flexible connectors used to connect water heaters, etc.. Without seeing your installation, we cannot tell if it could be a problem or not, since there are other factors that determine its appropriateness besides the material.

: I have about a 15 foot run of copper tubing that supplies my natural gas cloths dryer in my crawl space. It connects to the black iron pipe and appears to have been added some time ago. It is all above ground and has no sweated joints. It has never been a concern of mine but I'm selling my home and was told that some inspectors might question this. I've seen copper used before for supply of gas to water heaters. Why do some not like copper for gas lines? Does it matter if the copper is L or M?
