What kind of gas line can you bury?
Subsequently, one may also ask, what type of gas line can be buried?
Polyethylene gas piping systems are specifically engineered and certified for the underground environment.
One may also ask, do gas lines need to be buried? The inadvertent movement of the gas service line can cause leaks to form at the connections on either end of the line. For these simple reasons, the gas line needs to be buried at a safe and required depth. Propane gas lines running along the top of the ground (pictured here) constitute illegal installations.
Similarly, you may ask, can gas pipe be run underground?
HOME-FLEX Underground gas pipe and fittings are for use with natural gas and LP (propane) gas. This poly gas pipe must be installed outdoors and underground only. The plastic pipe may never be used above ground, in a building or under a building.
How deep should you bury a gas line?
Working around buried facilities Main lines are generally found at least 24 inches deep, while service lines are gener- ally found at least 18 inches deep. Keep in mind: existing grades can change and the current depth of an electric or natural gas line may be different than when originally installed.
