    CSST Bonding

    I've never had to do this. Does anyone have a picture of what this looks like? I've seen some illustrations but am having trouble visualizing.

    Thanks!

    You can see it in this video

    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

    Is this not a mechanical code? Either way im pretty sure around here mechanical contractors bond it to the ufer ground or hire an electrician if no ufer ground is present.

    One other thing I don't believe many contractors install is the thin wall pipe around my area, they install the thicker wall flexible pipe due to no bonding required and a less chance of developing pin holes from near by lighting strike.

    This is a gas code issue, not a mechanical code. Some areas allow non-electrical contractors to do the bonding while others don't. BTW, the thicker walled stuff does not require bonding per the manufacturer's instructions however, the gas code still requires it, I believe.

    AFAIK, the black-coated stuff doesn't require bonding.

    So how do you get around the gas code that requires csst to be bonded? I have not read the code lately so I am not sure if they have an exception.

    Mebbe it's not classified as CSST.

    Thanks for the video Dennis.

    So, you either bond the regular black gas pipe or the fitting on the CSST?

    Are you referring to black-iron pipe or black-jacketed flex gas line?
