In response to Re: GAS SUPPLY
YOu should use black steel pipe so the heat does not affect the integrity of the pipe. In most areas the shut off valve has to be in the surface of the fireplace mantle, or in the adjacent wall within 3' of the firelog set. In case of a failure in the gas log piping, you would not be able to safely access a shutoff inside the fireplace.

: IM INSTALLING A GAS LOG SET IN MY WOOD BURNING MASONARY FIREPLACE. THE QUESTION I HAVE IS SHOULD I RUN BLACK PIPE OR CAN I USE COPPER TUBING WITH FLARED ENDS. ALSO CAN THE SHUT OFF VALVE BE LOCATED INSIDE THE FIREPLACE OR OUTSIDE. THE GAS LINE WILL BE A 10 TO 15 FEET RUN IN THE CRAWL SPACE.I PREVIOUSLY CHANGED MY DRYER TO GAS AND RELOCATED MY GAS HOT WATER HEATER,SO I HAVE RUN GAS LINES BEFORE WITH NO PROBLEMS. THANK YOU
