In response to Re: Locating gas line in house
Once you find it you will run into another problem. You cannot usually install a union in a gas line if it is not going to be accessible, which it appears will be the case in your house. In that case you have to use what is called a left/right coupling and nipple and installing one of those is not a DIY job because it takes experience with them to install them correctly.

: I have black pipe gas lines in my home going to the stove, furnace and hot water heater. I want to tap into the line to install a gas-log unit in my fireplace. I know where the pipe comes into the house but after cutting several holes in the walls and ceiling where I thought the pipe should be, I still can't find it. Anyone know if there is a way or a device to detect the gas lines in the walls or ceiling without cutting up the whole house?
