Customer Questions & Answers

Can this VPC be buried in the ground??

Can this VPC be buried in the ground??
Asked by: HC
According to the manufacturer it can be used underground, but seven years after installation underground in my San Diego yard by professionals, this pipe is very badly corroded and full of holes in the areas near the joints where it was tapped and even mid-span where you would expect no damage to the coating. The green coating in completely inadequate to protect the pipe from corrosion, . Can be a very costly mistake to bury this under any length of hardscape since it would require demo to remove and replace.

Cathodic disbondment

Does the epoxy coating also protect from cathodic disbondment that occurs underground with steel pipe? A reviewer on this page showed a photo of this pipe that was pretty beat up...kind of scary.
Asked by: ffpmlex
Hi ffpmlex, The green epoxy coating on our wrapped pipe is intended to protect the exterior of our steel pipe from rust and corrosion when it is directly burried in the earth. However, that is only if the coating remains 100% intact. Any place on the pipe where the coating has been removed, either intentionally or accidentally, will be vulnerable. It will be susceptible to cathodic disbondment. After the pipe has been fitted, it is important to re-coat or wrap any place on the pipe or fittings where the epoxy has been scratched or chipped off.

Can Galvanized Steel pipe be used for natural gas service ?

VPC Model # 7175 Internet # 202300533 Store SKU # 666351 3/4 in. x 10 ft. Steel Wrapped Pipe
Asked by: Sandy
Hi Sandy - Yes galvanized steel pipe may be used to plumb natural gas in some areas, but not always. Different jurisdictions can vary on the use of galvanized steel pipe for natural gas. This can be a long discussion with several pros / cons to discuss. I am going to assume that you are asking because you want to route the pipe in ground? (Direct Bury.) Generally speaking, the best material for direct burial is Poly Gas Pipe. Depending on the soil conditions, I think that the next best is steel wrapped pipe and where allowed, Galvanized. If I can assist you further, give us a call. we are here from 8 - 5PM Pacific Time M-F (6610 257-3923 Ask for Jon

3/4 in. x 10 ft. Steel Wrapped Pipe is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally corroded after seven years in my yard. Unfortunately, it's running a total of approximat... Totally corroded after seven years in my yard. Unfortunately, it's running a total of approximately 150' under concrete and flagstone and the quote to demolish the concrete and flagstone to replace this pipe, then replace the concrete & flagstone is more than $15,000. I'm going to convert my built-in barbecue to use a propane tank and my fire pit will be non-functional. Do NOT install this pipe underground. Even the areas that were tapped near the joints were corroded through. It was so badly corroded that I accused the contractor that did the $110k landscape project in my yard of installing used pipe. He showed me the Home Depot receipts for the new pipe to prove is was new when installed. I noticed the gas line coming underground from the street to the meter was still in pristine condition twenty years after installation. It's some type of plastic-like pipe that requires a type of welding at the joints. That would be what you would want to use, definitely not this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For "Buyer Beware" You actually have to put the pipe primer on all the joints,fittings and you also have to put the pipe primer where ever you yse the pipe wrench because the pipe will corrode where the teeth marks are at. After installing the pipe primer you got to wrap it with 10 mil tape. ( if u want to do it right).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from buyer beware This gas pipe was in the ground for less than 3 years and all 100+ ft corroded. There may have been some operator error but this stuff is too fragile for anyone sane to install. I tried to contact the manufacturer but they don;t want to hear from anyone.
