Flexible copper gas line


I'm adding a gas fireplace to my master bedroom. The length from the gas meter to the fireplace will be 130 feet. Wondering if they sell flexible copper that long. I haven't seen it in any of the home improvement stores. Can you connect shorter lengths with flare unions? Or is there a better way? Thanks.

alot of places don't allow Flex copper as a gas line...... Check local building code first!!! I'd thnk if it's allowed you'd have to join 2 pcs as the longest i've seen at the "bix box" stores is 100'

Both of my furnace lines are flexible copper. I would assume that to mean it is ok to use per code?

You can asssume that, but you still need to contact your Building Inspection Department to double-check code, permit and inspection requirements, etc. before any work.
Good Luck!

Does the IFGC allow use of flexible copper for gas lines?

Ok, I called and it is allowed. I can also use flare connectors if the space where they are installed is accessible. But, I still wonder where I can get a long length of it to avoid flare connections.
