Urgent Question: Rubber Tubing for Gas Line to Stove?
Help! We're renovating our kitchen, and the contractor used a pretty heavy duty rubber tube to bring gas from the line that comes into the house to feed the furnace up through the ceiling to where the stove is in the kitchen. I think he did it this way in order to not have to open the ceiling up in the basement, the tubing is obviously flexible and he was able to thread it to the connection point without too much trouble. He's a home inspector and says that this meets the code requirements. I always thought gas lines needed to be metal. Should I be worried? Do I need to make him fix it or bring someone else in to fix it?
