    Default Compression Copper Gas fittings / pipes

    I have never seen this.
    The entire house from the exterior gas meter, into the home has these
    compression fittings with copper gas supply pipes. All were labeled "Natural Gas" on the interior runs. This appears to be standard copper piping.
    It some cases, the copper pipe connects to some small pieces of standard gas pipe fittings, just before going to the appliances.
    Is this allowed? Code? The house is 4 years old, located in Ohio.
    Pics attached.
    Any comments, Code referances?

    Thanks / Rich

    They're Pro-Press fittings. They are marked for gas, and use an o-ring and crimping tool.

    This is actually a very decent product and even though a bit spendy produces a very clean final installation. Some installers love it for the labor savings.

    with the price of copper, or the issue with thief, I would think its a dying form of piping. I see a lot of the yellow flex stuff now.
