Sizing Natural Gas Header Piping
« on: November 17, 2014, 01:16:07 PM »
When sizing the branch lines on a headered system, to we use length of run from the meter to the appliance or length of run from the header to the appliance?

Thanks, Mike

Always use the length from the gas meter to the farthest appliance.

Thanks. I don't know why but for some reason I thought it changed when running off a header. I will stick with back to the meter.
