Flexible Gas Connectors Running Through a Wall

Gas connectors is a very important aspect that gets evaluated as part of American Verified Home Inspections thorough inspection. 

Much of the gas connectors are not visible behind walls and finished ceilings in the basement.  What is visible will be evaluated as part of your Cincinnati home inspection.  This picture shows a flexible gas pipe connector being run through a wall which is a safety hazard.  A solid Black iron gas pipe or CSST (Corrugated Stainless Steel) pipe should be run through walls and flooring, as these type of materials can withstand the friction caused by the movement of the home, and are much less susceptible to cracking.  This flexible pipe connector in the photo was pointed out as a safety hazard by the inspector and recommended that a qualified plumber be called (not the homeowner) to evaluate and replace with the proper piping.
