Well as an electrician I have one problem doing the bonding like that. If lightning would come in you want all your steel in side the house at the same potential so it all becomes charged at the same rate so there is no arc. If the gas line has its own ground rod and not also bonded to the service ground it could be at different potential.Now if you would drive a ground rod like you do and bond it to the service it would be better than just running a wire to the service ground from thegas line. But the way you do it is most likely fine because the nec code says the gas line and water line if steel or copper must be bonded withing 5 feet of entering the house to the service ground. so the gas line sould already be bonded if the house is not too old

not sure about your regulations but we run Trac pipe to generators all the time , using a termination fitting at the outside wall then we use blk iron from there to the generator, check your codes and specs from the generator company

here you can run the csst through the wall to a wall flange through a ball valve on the outside and then a ss supply line to the generator

look at this video for bonding regular gastite
http://www.gastite.com/include/langu...iew_6-4-09.wmv

Then check out this from Gastite.http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...F9C-ew&cad=rja

We have been installing Flashshield around here for about a year. Whats great is that you do not have any additional bonding requirements. Of course you will want to check with your local code dudes, dude.

As far as the pics go, It may be functional, but uglier than sin plus no sign of bonding. Drip leg is too short, not too keen on the galvy, but that is another topic in itself.

Why the rollercoaster routing of pipe? Is there something that is outside of view of picture? Why not run trough wall and install nail plates?

Is that conduit clamps holding pipe to floor?

Pretty brave posting pictures around here.

Seriously though, check out the Flashshield

We are going back to her house today rt tomorrow I will take another look at it. I do know it is bonded right because I did the service on her house and bonded the cable,phone,and gas line to the ground bridge and the water line to the ground bar inside the panel. Also that is the same video I posted.\

[QUOTE=BigRedRam95;326737]I have always used black pipe and just wanted to try some gastite and was wondering how tight I can bend the csst? The book says a mim bend of 3/4 inch on 1/2 inch tubing. Is that about the same as a golf ball like someone told me? Is the csst in the picture about right on bend?

You shoulda called a plumber to install the gasline! Your words left no question in my mind as to who installed it! Where you at I believe an inspector needs to pay a visit and see your permit!
