Underground Gas Pipe

AirborneTrav Member Posts: 29
I am quoting a job for a customer in Suffolk County, NY for running underground gas piping (LP) to a fire pit and bbq. He got a quote from another contractor in which they proposed using soft copper. I was under the impression that burying soft copper was not legal anymore. Am I mistaken on this? When I do underground stuff I generally use poly with risers. Thanks in advance.

    Wasting time asking here, get in touch with the inspector. But to your point I would do as you suggest.

    Poly is all I use in CT, with the stab risers. No problems with inspections.

    I agree with the poly and the risers. Good in MA & CT for what that's worth

    I would ask the LP supplier for that county as to what will fly.
    In my area the LP company often does the install. Of course we have no inspection program for these installs.
