Running Propane Lines to New Cooktop


We are remodeling our kitchen, and are down to bare studs. I had a propane dealer come out to set a tank and run lines to the area where we will be installing a new cooktop. He told me that he did not want to run the new lines through the studs and behind the drywall "in case there were problems later, you won't have to tear out the cabinets and drywall". I really don't like the idea of running the line through or under the cabinets, and running underneath the house is not an option. I just wanted to hear you guys thoughts on the subject. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Run black pipe in the walls, leak test prior to finishing walls, this way there far less chance of running a screw through the piping. If I were running in the stud cavity that is how I would do it.

Threaded joints and connections cannot be concealed, if you have any threaded connections, there must be access available for future inspection.

That may true in the great white north, but I don't believe it is here, the requirement for piping in a wall cavity is, if not Schedule 40 it must be gaurded with metal sheeting, and, cannot use compound fitting such as unions and fittings containing bushings, allowed fittings are T's, couplings and nipples.

Not sure if you're right on that, Doug. I only do natural gas, and there's no such rules like that. I'd do the black steel pipe thing.

Oops, my bad, I guess I should think about what I am writing. I meant to say joints cannot be concealed before testing and inspection. It made sense to me at first, not after looking back.
