This Little John pressure regulator next to the street just doesn’t sit right with me. They are connected to a 100 psi high pressure gas line at the street.

You can make any recommendation that you find prudent to your client but don’t expect the seller to fix something that the gas company and code official condone.

I totally agree with both the other inspectors.
