Running new gas lines in the attic from LP tank


Hi guys well I have another project, I'm installing a 250 gallon LP tank out side my house and I need to run the LP lines thru the attic to my garage and kitchen. I really don't know where to start as far as what type of lines to use. Any help here I'm sure I can handle the project but I need to get educated before . Thanks

The gas company should be doing this, not a DIY. One of the jobs that can make your house go boom and people die.
If you have to ask how to do it, then on this one you should not be doing it.

What he said. Many localities allow the homeowner to do most anything in his own house, running gas lines is not one of them. If it is wrong, the results can be deadly. If you want to learn, check local plumbing code with referrence to gas lines.

If you want to learn, itís best that you watch the contractors when they install the line, multiple factors need to be taken into account, example BTU ratings type of materials to be used, distance from the service tank to the unit, I doubt t someone on this site will give you a how to do it in this situation Most gas companies are not delivering or filling LP tanks without a permit final and approval.
