Testing Gas Pressure
Posted by Michel Heyman on April 11, 2004 at 12:20:36:
We have installed a 120' 2" gas line and have put the system on test. After tightening and re-tightening all of the fittings the pressure gauge was reading just over 15 PSI for approximately 2 hours yesterday afternoon and then gradualy dropped the next morning to 13.5 PSI. Is this within the norm? Do I have something to worry about? Must I go through the line again to check for leaks or am I ok with the read?

I ask this question as our previous piping length of 120' was a combination of 2", 1 1/4", 1" and 3/4" but we were able to maintain 15 PSI for days. Thank you for your input.
