Is our kitchen gas line okay just lying on the floor?


Our kitchen is being remodeled. The new cook-top is going to be on a different a wall than the old one, so they are re-routing the gas line from the old location to the new one.

Our contractor has placed the gas line on the floor. This will be behind the base cabinets once they are installed. Please see the picture.

Is this the right way to do this?

If it will be hidden with cupboards, I would think it will be fine as well as the easiest and cheapest place to put it.

Jeff,

I am not sure since I'm a tileguy, but........common sense tells me this may not pass inspection if there's any joints that will be hidden and not accessible. I also would not be happy with them notching my new cabinet frames in order to do it this way. Looks like you have a crawl or basement under there. So why not go that way?

Without searching codes books, I would ask what your town's inspector has to say.

Maybe it doesn't show in the pic but I don't see any unions in the pipe. It looks like one long piece.

Guap0,

You don't think the ends where the joints are will be exposed, do you?

I don't see a problem with hiding a black pipe in the kick area under the cupboards.

It looks half-assed to me but I don't know your local codes. Regardless, even if it meets code it should have a couple of intermediate anchors to secure it in place.

Plenty of IP gas pipe joints are hidden in walls and everywhere..... Unions can not be hidden and must be accesable.

They must be secured though.... don't recall the actual code.

3/4" or 1" pipe is to be supported every 10 ft. as per Oregon Mechanical Code C416. Or whatever code is adopted and enforced in your area.

If NFPA 58 is enforced in your area, use that.
