Braided Flex Line for propane


Is is acceptable to use braided steel flex line for a propane installation of a Vent free fireplace. I would prefer not to have to do the traditional black pipe route. I only need to go about 30 feet into the house from the tank. I was hoping this is acceptable and then try to find a supplier who can provide me with the line with fittings on the end.

Flex gas line is usually only allowed at the end use appliance. Some codes don't even allow that. And most localities do not like homeowners running their own gas lines. Check local code.

Interesting, I've not seen a "braided steel line" for use with either natural or LP gas. I am familiar with the CSST, Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing. This has the yellow plastic covering over it. As JB posted: Check your local codes--in my area it is illegal, by code, for a homeowner to run any gas line--PERIOD. BUT- our local Lowe's, but not HD, sell the CSST and all the fittings to anyone who wants to buy them. Go figure.
