    Default Yellow Corrugated Gas Line on propane tank

    Found some CSST running from a propane tank to a water heater. I understand that it should be grounded if connected to natural gas lines from a municipal system but is it still an issue if connected to a propane tank and would one need to call it out? Doesn't seem to me to have the potential for a fire due to a lightning strike. If it needed to be bonded where would one do that? At the propane tank? Never have seen that.

    Gastite makes no mention of the type of fuel flowing through its product when it comes to bonding.
    Install guide available online, bonding page screen shot attached.

    Robert,

    I agree with Dom. First, I would like to confirm that you are referring to a permanent propane tank and not a portable 20 lb. (barbecue/grill-type) tank. I believe portable tanks are not listed for that type of use.

    Generally, the gas is bonded (not grounded) where it enters the building and this is typically run(at least in my area) with a hard pipe. The clamp can be attached to a pipe or fitting, but not the CSST itself.
