Wonder how mapp gas would do in my Mr. Heater. It uses the fat propane tanks. Think it might get too hot or clog? Hmmm. I don't like messing with gas. I have no gas license, don't want one. Scares me ship-less since I almost caught my moms carpet on fire when I first started plumbing. Long story there. Just plain skeered of it.

A certifeid plumber in FL is licensed for gas. I do gas all the time, never had an issue getting a permit for it. Now I am confused for sure. No seperate licensed needed, unless its medical.

Well. Put this way. I never studied gas or had to take a test for it so I assumed I was not licensed for it. I do not do gas, don't like it, am afraid of it. Water can do enough damage let alone fire. lol.

Btw.Am in Charleston. Nice place, Will venture out to see more in the morning. Got here late, like 6 pm.
I think I did have you confused with someone else. Guess I don,t really know you. My mistake. I have been in business in Tally since 1995. Worked for only 3 different plumbers from 1975 through 1995. I don't advertise, I don't do service. I do only new residential construction, no commercial work. I did sub from roto rooter and Boone plumbing when I first started out.
Do you buy from E&E mostly, or fergusons? All the folks at both places know me well. Still don't have a clue?

55% of the exam last year were gas related questions. Guess they have changed it up since you first got your license. Your words have some truth to them. I was talking with a guy that has been certified and in business for 20 yrs, and didn't know he could do gas either. Wish I wouldn't have told him, now he's bidding on it, trying to sub it out to me, but i dont play that middle man stuff.

As far as the danger with gas, it could be. But, thanks to the excellence of the public servants provided by the city to inspect said projects, I assure you, i sleep very well at night.

Mainly E&E, they give me the big company discounts, fergys is a little to high for me. I know boone, and his brother. The guys at E&E know me well. Have been getting parts from them since 99' when i first started with Bennett's, worked for him till 04' then M&L till aug of this year. have been licensed since april of this year. Its going good too. More than I deserve.
