I'm the guy to raised his hand.. volunteer to paint the
basement of a 36 unit condo ''basement''. My question is..
and I'm a stickler for safety.. There are, yes, you guessed it, 36 gas pipes (natural gas) leading from 36 gas meters in the middle of our basement elevator lobby. It's
my understanding that gas pipes should be painted black (they are presently painted the off-white, same as the ceiling) which they are running 2'' from,.. should I bring them back to black for safety sake. Are there codes that natural gas pipe should be black? I thought there would
be no mistaking them for water pipes if they were black.. I'm I going over-board..or What!!!! I don't think this is
a local code thing.. just common sense... or am I just plain toooo picky?
