    Default Smells like a DIY?

    Today I had two gas fireplaces in a residence. The question I have... They routed the gas pipe (I believe CSST) from the basement through the exterior wall, strapped it to the chimney, poked a hole through the backside of the combustion chamber and hooked it up to the flex line for the fireplace. It's my understanding that you can't do that? Am I right?

    DIY or spouse looking to collect big insurance policy.
    Not an acceptable install or safe. We don't really use that stuff around here so I don't know it's exterior use. However, unless the fireplace is bricked up at the interior how do they guarantee there won't be any flame?

    There was one in the floor of the 1st floor fireplace and none in the basement... I got that... I just wanted to make sure that I was on the right track with the supply line.
