Hi gfhSanDiego.


I just spotted your second question about gas pipe through a cinderblock wall.  I would like to direct you to call your local municipality.  They will be the best suited to answer code inquiries.


  Referenced below is a section from the 2010 California Plumbing code

1209.5.2.2 Steel and wrought-iron pipe shall be not less than standard weight (Schedule 40) and shall comply with one of the following standards:

  1. ASME B36.10, Welded and Seamless Wrought-Steel Pipe
  2. ASTM A 53, Standard Specification for Pipe, Steel, Black and Hot-Dipped, Zinc-Coated Welded and Seamless
  3. ASTM A 106, Standard Specification for Seamless Carbon Steel Pipe for High-Temperature Service [NFPA 54:]  See chapter 12


Let me know if you need more assistance.
