FYI – Flexible hose for natural gas and propane alert
Lt. Governor Jim Cawley and State Fire Commissioner Ed Mann recently announced an effort to raise awareness regarding a safety upgrade for grounding existing (and new) yellow corrugated stainless steel tubing used to supply natural gas or propane to appliances in homes and offices. There has been an upgrade to the grounding installation requirements due to the risk of fires resulting from pinhole leaks in the tubing that can occur as a result of a lightning strike.
As a state prone to lightning strikes, TEMA and PSATS encourages its member townships to share this information with their residents as a means to further provide for the protection of the health, welfare, and safety of your residents.
Property owners who have yellow CSST installed in their homes after 1989 should contact a licensed electrical contractor to determine proper bonding of the system. As always, consumers should consider qualifications of the contractor before selecting them to perform a safety check.
Here is a link to a video describing the proper bonding and grounding requirements: www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SvS40oYMiE. Here is a link to the technical bulletin outlining the new grounding requirements: www.csstsafety.com/Images/CSST-Direct-Bonding-Tech-Bulletin.pdf.
Although yellow CSST installations may have met code requirements at the time of installation, safety building codes have changed and it is now recommended that these systems be promptly checked and updated to the new installation standards.
