Ground to a gas line?

Are you reading this page because you want to know if it is OK to ground electrical equipment to an existing gas line?

Ground to a gas line? No! Never!

Don't even THINK about using a gas line as an electrical ground strap.

Metal underground gas piping is never approved as a grounding device.


It's against the NEC National Electric Code 250.52(B), The UPC Plumbing Code and The NFPA Fire Code.

If that isn't enoungh, it's dangerous and stupid.

Get it ?   NO!
