Gas piping and repair should not be attempted by homeowners due to the many safety considerations and ordinances that have to be met.
Dealing with natural gas or propane is a serious matter and should never be attempted by someone who is not qualified and certified to do this kind of work. In the South Bend area, licensed plumbing contractors are the only people considered qualified by the local municipalities. It is generally necessary for the licensed plumber to “pull a permit” with the city before doing the work. After installation of the gas line, a city inspector will come and inspect the installation to make sure it was done correctly.
Why gas lines must be installed by only licensed plumbers
When adding a new gas line to an existing house’s gas system, it is necessary to determine the total BTU load of the house and then add to that the number of BTU’s you will be adding. The unified plumbing code has a chart that is to be followed to determine how many BTU’s a particular size of pipe can handle. If the original line that you want to add the gas line to is not sized correctly, then it might not be capable of supplying enough BTU’s to all fixtures when needed. If this happens, you have serious trouble; i.e. problems with the operation of all gas appliances on that line. This is one of many reasons why gas lines must be installed by only licensed plumbers approved by the city.
