CSST in Va

For those who may not have heard or read this. This was added effective July 1.
Have always recommended it be bonded/grounded in the past regardless of the date.

Yellow CSST Disclosure
A new law (SB 812) mandates additional disclosure if a certain type of flexible gas/propane pipe is found in homes built before the 2006 Virginia Construction Code was adopted.

Beginning July 1, 2017, licensed home inspectors who observe any shade of yellow corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST) during inspection of an applicable home (built prior to the May 1, 2008, date when the 2006 Code became effective), must include the following disclosure statement in the home inspection report:

“Manufacturers believe that this product is safer if properly bonded and grounded as required by the manufacturer’s installation instructions. Proper bonding and grounding of the product should be determined by a contractor licensed to perform the work in the Commonwealth of Virginia.”

I’m in MD but I always report its presence and of course bonding or lack thereof.
