Gas Pipe Removal


I've got extra gas pipe running out to an unused stub out on my deck. Any tips on how to safely remove it? Thanks.

Gas Pipe Removal


Going to have to guess what you have without a picture or more info.
Black iron, Copper, Pex ?
If the gas valve is shut off near the main and the lines been uncapped to vent the gas just start unscrewing it.
Make sure to cap and lines left in place or add a plug if it's removed back to the valve.

Gas Pipe Removal


Leave it alone or use it for a gas BBQ. You may regret it later if you want one.

Gas Pipe Removal


It's black iron. I may leave it haven't decided yet. I took down the plaster and poorly finished drywall in my basement. I'm just trying to clean up stuff that is uneccessary or looks goofy. (Of which there is plenty) The gas pipe will probably stay, I just want to make sure I know what I'm doing if I do decide to remove it. Thanks for the replies.
