CSST Bonding


I have about 20' of CSST that runs from the main iron gas line to the kitchen stove.

1. Do you think it's necessary to ground?

2. If necessary to ground, can I run a ground wire from point B (see diagram) to a common ground wire inside an electrical switch box?

Ground wire has to run all the way to the load center (breaker panel)'s ground bus or grounding rod outside.
You cannot ground gas line to ground wire in a switch box.

You will need to use 6 AWG bare copper wire. You can bond to point B or anywhere in iron pipe before it.
It is best to bond at the entrance point.

I agree with that 100% and that is what the inspectors I've dealt with wanted.

However, I used #6 green THWN and had no problems.

Technical point, it is being bonded not grounded.
