    I've seen that one quite a bit for gas vent hoses to the outside. But I do remember seeing one time where somebody had used an air hose to run the gas line to the furnace. Wish I had pic. Talk about unsafe!

    The homeowner was trying to bleed that stubborn sulpher smell out of their gas line.
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    Double reg setup

    Not sure about where you are, but in PA there is a code on having a primary reduction regulator on pressures over 2 psi inlet. The code might just be the county, don't work with over 2 psi that often.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    Wadda ya mean?,, isn't air a gas??..

    Farmers all over the gas fields of the Midwest that got free gas in exchange for pipeline access have ran gas in garden hose for years.

    Dun seen it with my own eyes,,,, and that was pre processed, no odorant added,, and no idea of H2S content.

    The pipeline companies have gotten allot of them off of it but it was once a sight to behold!!
