Since they’re metal studs the guy was probably using a self tapping sheet metal screw. With an impact gun a self tapper probably goes through no problem.

We use counterstrike csst at work but it's usually for bigger residential jobs. What we really need is some kind of reel caddy. As far as the autosnap fittings, we don't have much trouble with them maybe it was just because you were unfamiliar with the product?

I had to try it. It took 3-4 seconds per screw to penetrate

Unfamiliar is accurate. I don’t like the seal. It’s unbeiliveable how small of a surface area since it isn’t a flare. I imagine someone in attic or crawl space getting hung up on a section of pipe and snagging it maybe hard, maybe not so hard and it leaking right away. I’m going to have to experiment with it now. Dang it. I have enough on my plate.

I see a lot of CSST here. Most have moved to Counterstrike when it came out so you can drop the required electrical bond. They run the main in black and then branch out for fireplaces, stoves, 2nd. floor furnaces with it.

Several years ago in a nearby town with the yellow CSST. The installer ran it through the metal case of a gas fireplace. A nearby lightening strike delievered a static charge to it and blew a small hole thorugh it. Dang near blew the house up as the ethyl mercaptin filled the fireplace chase before anyone noticed the smell.

The mandate to bond the yellow pipe has always been inplace but missed. #6 bare wire anyplace on the system back to the main panel.

Once the counterstrike came out that went away.

Who remembers the "pulse" furnaces that you had to use a flex connector to so the vibration could be handled?
