TOPIC: PVC pipe for gas line?

PVC pipe for gas line? 11 years 3 months ago #41979

Is PVC ok for gas line? I know it isn't but I gotta ask to be sure. It T's off from gas feed and then goes into slab and feeds to outdoor Bar-B-Q.

They used to allow a yellow PVC for natural gas.  It was required to be completely buried.  They had special metal 90's that were attached to the end that would complete the portion as it exited the ground.  Of course plastic is the most common supply line to the meters nowadays but not PVC.

If it is just regular PVC or even schedule 40 I would call it out.  Even if it was the allowed yellow PVC, you would not have seen it since it must be completely buried.

There is nothing sweeter than the smell of fresh cut grass on a baseball infield, the click of a wooden bat and the taste of a hot dog at a warm sunny daytime double-header.

Steve, I assume you are referring to CPVC, but either way Mike, PVC shouldn't be used. I know some areas allow copper for gas, but why do that either? I've never seen either around here for gas. Yes, I would right it up.

Copper is allowed up here but it has to marked every 6 feet with yellow so as to indicate gas verus water.
