Fuel line in concrete

Ghynes440 Member Posts: 1
I want to replace my fuel line from my tank to my furnace. Is this something easy to DIY? It seems like it is, but I wanted to ask before I dive in this. I want to run it overhead which means I need a tigerloop system as well. Any help would be appreciated!

    Could I ask why you feel you need to replace the line? And I might add -- overhead lines don't always nee a Tiger Loop -- but the are almost always harder to prime and keep primed, Loop or no.

    You need to have a flaring tool for copper tubing and know how to flare tubing. Overhead line should be avoided if possible.

    Things can go wrong.

    Not saying you can't do it but it may be better to call someone in
