I guess I am paranoid as to every time a house blows up in my area from a

gas explosion I go check my records to see If I inspected the home???

My question is I observed a dresser coupling under a crawl space on a two story duplex 1-1/2 inch gas supply this compression coupling has neoprene seals. Did not observe the WOG symbols on this fitting and it makes me nervous. All I can find in my 2000 code book for single and double residence dwellings is that compression fittings are allowed IF THEY ARE RATED. Any comments would be appreciated.

Don't argue with an idiot someone watching may not be able to tell the difference.
