gas line @ pool heater

The gas line @ ground level rotted. It does not have any elbows 11'' down but bends and goes under the pool heater. Do I have to cut the pipe and thread it? It is galvinized pipe.

#1 The gas company should be doing this not a DIY.
#2 Galvinized pipe should not have been used for a gas line.
The whole line needs to be run with copper.

In my area the gas company will not touch anything on the customer side of the gas meter. It is up to the customer to make or arrange for repairs.

Someplace along that pipe there should be a connection. My concern would be if the pipe started leaking in one place it will most likely do the same in other places as well. May be time to replace the whole line.

Replace the entire line with approved material rated for gas service.
