Outdoor plumbing


I am installing an outdoor BBQ in an island with a sink and have a few questions. The BBQ island will sit on a concrete pad that is continuous from the island to the house. All utilities will be covered from the BBQ to the house and will enter the basement through a hole in the footing of the house.

1. What type of pipe should I use the for the hot and cold water?
Copper, galvanized cast iron, ?

2. I am using marine wrapped cast iron for the gas line but I am using black cast iron fittings. How do I provide protection to the fittings that is similar to the marine wrap on the pipe?

3. Do I need to have a ground wire associated with the gas line? If so, from where to where should it run?

4. I intend to run electrical in rigid conduit (PVC).

5. I intend to run a 2" ABS drain line to the sewer connection.

6. How deep do the services need to be if they are under a 3.5" concrete pad for:

Water lines?
Gas line?
Electrical PVC conduit?
ABS drain line?

Answers with details are greatly appreciated.
