Anybody know what the code is for distance from a copper gas line to an insulated can? I'm in Minneapolis. I'm thinking an inch would be enough, but I dont know if there are building codes that would tell me exactly or not.


Thanks,

I'm not sure, all cities will vary slightly with their code. Your safest bet is to call your city building inspector for the answer. They will generally answer without giving much grief.


Good luck

Yeah, that's a tough one to answer on a national level - you'd be best to check with the local inspectors or your local gas company. Here, copper gas line isn't even allowed.

I haven't heard of copper being used for a gas line. In our area Black Iron Pipe is required inside any appliance using gas. You may use flex if your locality will allow it. Are you positive it is gas?

Maryland allows the use of a special copper pipe for use with 2 psi gas. The copper pipe is painted yellow to identify that it is for gas. Installers like to use it because it is flexible (compared to the traditional black iron pipe), resulting in reduced installation times.
