Gas plumbing- materials to use question


I am doing my backyard and I wanted to put in gas lines for tiki torches, grill station and potentially a patio heater or two. I realize I cannot do gas work myself so I have had two plumbing contractors out to give me a price.

One guy is recommending running galvanized pipe, the other is recommending PVC with some other material running through it. The second guy also mentioned poly but said it was way to expensive.

My question is what materials are recommended for a project like this- it will be run under a concrete slab with 1.5 inch blue stone on top? I do not know much about gas but want to make sure this is done right.

Thank you in advance for your responses!

After receiving the info from how the plumbers want to do this, call your gas supplier and get their input.

The Gas supplier makes the call on what materials they will allow to be used.

PVC? Even if allowed I would not use it....especially outside....black pipe only for me....

And why can't you do your own work? Oh....you must be on the East Coast....

There's a saying - it's better to do it right the first time around. Go with the galvanized pipe. Though it's more costly it will last the longest and give you less trouble in the long run.

You should also know what you are talking about before giving advice. Just because it may be OK where you are, does not mean it can be used everywhere.

Some jurisdictions prohibit galvanized pipe.
Some gas suppliers prohibit any galvanized pipe, even on your side of the meter.
The right advice is to check with the gas supplier or the local authority having jurisdiction.
