How come you don't sell 1/2 in IPS riser, only 3/4 and 1 inch? My gas stub from house is 1/2 in ...

Asked by Stephon January 8, 2018

Answers

I had a similar need. My scenario is that I have a gas line with 1/2 ball valve that was run for a gas grill. I want to extend that line about 15 foot so part of it would be underground and part of it above ground and IPS seems to be the best option where i don't have to do conduit and boxes etc to keep it out of the elements. I was going to use the riser to transition from above ground to below ground but i'm not about to use 3/4" pipe when there is a significant cost difference. As someone else on here stated, why do you sell the 1/2" pipe and couplings but not the riser? Still trying to determine the best solution for my issue, any reasonable advice is appreciated.

does a certain portion of this riser need to be above ground?

A minimum of 6" of the riser must be above grade.

Yes, But if this slab is in a home then you must bring the riser up on the outside of the home and then go into the home with black iron pipe and can transition into CSST line. Gas riser are not for internal use and CSST are not for external home use. Every state has different codes.

Is this used to transition from plastic pipe back to steel pipe?

Asked by Frank September 24, 2017

Answers

Yes, specially near your house, you’ll come out your house rim Joyce then have your shut off valve outside then connect this riser, run plastic underground then pop up out of the ground with a plastic to steel transition, for like a fire pit, or another riser if you were going to another building.

I want to thank everyone for the answers. I know that the inspector has the final say, however with all offices shut down due to Covid-19 I have had my permit under review for 3 weeks now. Before if you had a question you could call them, now you have to know the inspector's specific email address. Because I work in a casino here in Las Vegas I have time to complete these kinds of projects. By the time I get an answer I'll probably be back at work with a lot less time to complete projects.

As a professional installer I like this set up. I used this product on a project for one of my landscape/outdoor living spaces jobs and it work perfectly the first time. (I have been doing this for 20+ years - first timers and DIYers may have more difficultly and should know ALL codes and requirements of local authorities) My only complaint is the availability of product at all locations or the accuracy of online vs. actual in-stock items. I check online and called to verify stock before travelling to the store and found they did not have what I needed, even though this store had the MOST extensive supply of parts/variety of fittings. this will be the most frustrating part of using this product. The best aspect of this product is the reusable fittings. Other fittings are one-time only / better get it right the 1st time fittings

Hi Mxlflyer, please keep in mind that the cost of this item's testing, certification and on-going standards compliance is a part of the overall cost. This is not an item that we can simply assess its cost based on materials. ValenciaPipe

It would be nice if the riser had a built in coupling, or at least include it with the riser . You can’t use the riser without a coupling. More to order and more to charge you for.

Response from VPC, Home-Flex ExpertJanuary 15, 2021
It's an interesting idea, Thomas, but there are a lot of users who use a 90 degree elbow or tee at the end of the riser for their particular application. You're correct in that a fitting needs to be ordered but that wouldn't change the overall retail pricing if ordered as a "bundle" or individual pieces. ValenciaPipe
