FYI – Flexible hose for natural gas and propane alert

August 8th, 2013

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:  Here is a link to the technical bulletin outlining the new grounding  requirements:


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.
