Propane line to house - permit needed?
I want to start new propane service to an existing house. To replace electric water heater with point-of-use propane. Do I need a permit with the city before I dig trench and lay pipe or can I just go ahead and do it?

If you are running from a remote tank, your propane supplier may be able to give you some experienced advice for your location. If you use enough, you may get them to install and/or supply the tank. - It is not to likely since it is just for heating water, but you might learn something or even get lucky.

Weather you need a permit or not, is up to your local AHJ, call them and ask.

Are you buying the tank or is the supplier providing it? If the latter the supplier will take care of those details. Around here, the supplier does everything, including the trenching. But that would be the first place to ask your question.:yes:
