I know in nor calif. that you have to have a gas line 6" above the ground or the roof. what I don't know is why. the upc does not give a reason nor do the inspectors know why. Any info would be helpfull. Thank You for your time.:blink:

It all has to do with how the gas is pumped from the original well to the plant, you have to take into consideration the ratio of megotherms vs hydrotitans, see below, this should help.

We use galv. pipe for all natural gas that is exposed to the elements. so there would be no corrosion, and we have no snow in these parts. so why the 6"? Why not 4" or 2" or 10"
