    Is that CSST?
    No problems I am aware of with the manifold, but if CSST, then bonding is required to lessen risk of lightening damage according to the class action settlement. Of course all gas piping is already required to be bonded, but the settlement provides money to get bonding done.

    Lack of support for the CSST, the weight of the CSST itself could cause those to flex over and crimp. 'Not likely', but 'could', they need to be supported and secured there.

    I see the regulator has a vent limiter in it, that's good.

    What JP just described is where I have found several leaks-- at the connectors due to the torque being put on by the bend.

    Surprised that much weight and torque on those lines have not caused that bracing to be pulled over or at least moved.

    Not the work of the Romans for sure.

    Jim, CSST settlement period is over. No more dough! Excess flow valve installation are a good idea also on any CSST manifold along with the bonding..

    Good catch Wayne, it has been a while since I actually read anything on that site.

    From that site, about the bonding requirements:
    The LPS was installed in accordance with NFPA 780 or UL standards;
    Does anyone have access to NFPA 780 or the UL standards pertaining to the bonding requirements?
    Thanks, Jim
