I would rather give up the job, than take the chance on a customer supplied part. I trust my suppliers and hope a customer has good luck with what they bought. I won't know, because I won't be involved.

Plus, when said part fails, the homeowner demands that you come back out, free of charge, because they say you installed it wrong.

Please do not get me wrong, I am all for the handy homeowner repairing things that are within his abilities and we all have different levels of abilities, but there are some areas of repair that are not DIY, Gas plumbing, some electrical, gas fireplaces, most HVAC....... You may be able to get it right, but if you miss one "minor" thing, people can die.

I just signed up here just to be able to put my 5 cents on this.
The man needs a solution not a lecture on law and liability, he can take that up with the city he resides on.
Taping to an existing source, placing a pipe in a trench and attaching a regulator is " NOT " rocket sience.
People come here looking for guidance and it seems some of you on this matter, felt very intimidating. Granted gas is not forgiving like watter, but carefully done and tested for leaks, ( test kit is very inexpensive , a plug and a gage) is very safe. As to length and pressure, tables are public domain. I agree I will go to the meter instead of water heater but
If you don't want to impart your little knowledge to others, is simple . Stay out !

As a new member you need to look at posting dates. You responded to a 2009 post.

Re: Running outdoor gas line


If customer supplies any material said customer will have to honor all warranties on any supplied material. Anything missing at time of install will have to be procured by the provider of said material to be used and additional labor charges may be incurred for any delays or extra trips to complete the job. Your warranty will be for the installation only that said installation meets or exceed the manufactures recommendation and local codes.
