This is never a good sign!!! Pipe wrench hanging on the piping.
How else would you get the valve open?!
Or it is handy when needed
GOOD POINTS!!! Thanks!!!
Those water lines would never pass in this part of the country.
Not here either. I was wondering when someone would mentioned the lines. They are not water lines. They are natural gas lines too the furnace and water heater.
. . . maybe the owner kept losing them, so he naturally place them next to the pipes, you “where’s my pipe wrench, oh it’s on the pipes” . . . ya, I don’t go for that either :mrgreen:
Is the white teflon tape allowed for gas lines?
Sorry Buck, but that’s not really a pipe wrench.
Some European cars came with those wrenches in a tool kit, making it an “adjustable spanner”.
I think Ian nailed it, it is there so the valve can be closed in the event of an emergency. And it’s useless for anything else, anyway.
The galvanized wouldn’t pass for gas lines here. I guess the plug is the drip leg.
Some very good eyes.
The plug is not being used for a drip leg. See the copper pipe behind the plug. The copper gas line fed a small wood burner heater. The gas line has been disconnected, wood burner no longer in operation. I will submit photo of wood burner later.
