    We, here in Ohio, are required to have that "Drip", on all Nat Gas/ Propane supply lines prior to entering the appliance. No matter whether the appliance is in a Sleeping Room, or in a multi-million dollar home.

    I think he’s referring to the drip leg/sediment trap being on a horizontal pipe run. It is supposed to be at the bottom of a vertical run to work as intended.

    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.
    Questions should end with a question mark "?" Statements end with a period "."

    The "drip leg" still has to be there Kdean, whether it's at the bottom of a vertical drop, or in a horizontal run to the appliance.

    The main problem being of your not changing the direction of flow nothing will “drip” or fall into the drip leg. The way it’s pictured in the OP is wrong. Won’t do anything.

    For Example:

    If you put a trap in under a sink in the horizontal position “laying on its side” would it do anything? Would it still work as it would in the vertical position?

    I think code where I am the gas needs to enter the branch of the tee, a capped drip leg pointing down, and the outlet pointing up.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    That fine in PA. Drip required on horizontal run to my generator. More concerned about the fitting from Indonesia, and the flex.
    Uh...Google it yourself!

    If that Flex run in the picture, is coming from a drop, that doesn't have a "Drip Leg", is the branch line not to have a "Drip Leg", Metalman, & Kdean?

    its wrong...

    gas needs to come in from the top of the run, opposite of a 3" nipple & cap on the bottom making up the drip (dirt pocket). the bull of the tee feeds the gas control. there needs to be a change in direction to "force" sediment to drop into the pocket
    my boss thinks its possible to repeal the laws of physics

    If the actual gas line drop already has a correct drop leg, and that flex is coming off the bull of the tee not pictured then their wrongly piped drip leg is just a waste of ftgs.

    Everyone has their own local codes to follow and I understand that, BUT I don’t care what anyone says, if you don’t change the direction of flow your not going to allow anything to fall Into the trap.
