gas pipes

Post by greg1 » Sat Jul 07, 2018 9:33 pm

Can I move my own natural gas iron pipes inside the house? Or do I need a permit for that or someone qualified?
Just wondering if I could raise them a couple inches in one spot to accommodate higher ceiling.

Totally depends on your jurisdictional requirements. IMHO, gas line work is not really a DIY project, simply because you're dealing with something that is deadly if not done correctly.

1 - check with your local building department on regulations and restrictions to non-licensed workmanship.
2 - If you are allowed to DIY, read up on the subject and watch a whole bunch of videos so that you know and understand what you need to do and what it takes to make tight, leak-proof connections, and how to test for leaks once you're done.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
