Bill Zoller, of U.S. Inspect, shared this picture and invited comments as to why this gas line was installed this way. I have to admit, I am stumped... I can think of no "good" reason why a person would loop a gas line around a post... Can you?
Answer: Unacceptable Installation!
There must have been a reason the installer of this water heater gas line looped it around the storage shelf framing? The picture just doesn't give us the benefit of the doubt.
You decide and let us know your thoughts.
At any rate, it's not an acceptable method for gas line installation and needs to be corrected.
