well in my area we have the follow the national gas code not sure if this apply to every one here but I'm in NY. I always thought the national code applied to every one . Any way If you type in National gas code 404.6 you will see what i mean. the gas company National Grid will no longer except this type of installation. I have two jobs one we will be changing next week but its going to be a pain in the a$$ to correct . Couldn't sleep for the last few days because of this. And the messed up part is they came out inspected the site and never said anything about the installation of line being a problem

404.6 Underground Penetrations Prohibited

Gas piping shall not penetrate building foundation walls at any point below grade. Gas piping shall enter and exit a building at a point above grade and the annular space between the pipe and the wall shall be sealed.

It just says you can't pipe through below grade. You can pipe through the foundation above grade.

Gas piping shall not penetrate building foundation walls at any point below grade. Gas piping shall enter and exit a building at a point above grade and the annular space between the pipe and the wall shall be sealed.



you are wrong, only below grade through foundations is prohibited, above ground is the same as always..here is the section..


404.4 Piping in solid partitions and walls.Concealed piping shall not be located in solid partitions and solid walls, unless installed in a chase or casing.

404.6 Underground penetrations prohibited.Gas piping shall not penetrate building foundation walls at any point below grade. Gas piping shall enter and exit a building at a point above grade and the annular space between the pipe and the wall shall be sealed


here is the link to the 2020 gas code draft....
