I've only seen them use it in ground, not in a house. What are you doing with it?

Polyethylene gas line is usually yellow and comes in various sizes. As stated it's for outdoor, underground use only. Also, depending on the make of the fittings you will likely need special tools a each manufacturer has different methods joining the connections.

What are you looking to do?

If you are talking about changing the gas lines in your house then you can use black iron. Most contractors use trac pipe(http://www.omegaflex.com/trac/index.asp) now but black iron is perfectly legal and the preference of some people. Trac pipe as its advantages and disadvantages. One advantage, it takes a lot less time to install it.

for the line from the meter to the house you can use the poly line or steel (depending on your local codes i guess, it's legal here). the steel can be black iron that is wrapped or scotch-coated steel with wrapped joints. the poly gas line is fused together with a special and very expensive tool that you need to be trained and certified to use. there is also a direct burial trac-pipe that is fairly new. this sounds like something you might want to hire a plumber/gasfitter for.

You would need what's called a chamfering tool to prepare the ends of the pipe to join into the fittings.

Any CSST pipe should have the atta-boy card that came from a factory rep for the training. Some suppliers will sell it to anyone, but others want to see the card.

Just a thought....
