    Went into a chicken coop one time..... this place was about 100 or so feet long... 50 feet wide..... full of chickens..... and they had these little 12 inch diameter infrared heaters that were about 3 feet off the ground suspended by chains...... flexible gas lines to most of them was clear vinyl hose.

    Very brittle from age... or whatever... clear vinyl hose.

    LP gas... there were leaks everywhere.

    I found 1/2 clear drain hose in a house going to a dryer and homemade heater once... that among some other things that freaked out the gas company so bad that they paid to have all the equipment and gas lines replaced there...

    It's not what you're capable of doing that defines you, it's what you do on a daily basis.

    I repiped the whole house, they only had 1/2 pipe feeding a 120,000 furnace, waterheater and a gas fireplace. In the process I omitted the tee for the gas grill completely.

    True, but I'm looking to move my propane flat top into my kitchen. I have missed cooking on a flat top grill.

    That is scary that they all let it slide. There are more heat pumps than furnaces here but the ones that do have furnaces are so scared of gas they probably would of ran away from that get up
