Charlotte Home Inspector Explains Why CSST Piping Needs to be Bonded

February 22nd, 2013 · No Comments

The gas piping in this house includes corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST). There is no electrical

bonding connection between the gas piping system and the electrical system, other than connections at the

gas appliances that utilize the grounding conductors for the appliances. The lack of strong electrical

bonding may increase the potential for lightning strikes to cause arcing at the CSST gas piping that may

result in perforation of the piping, gas leaks, and fires. For safety, it is recommended that this installation

be further investigated by a licensed electrical contractor.
