In response to Re: pin hole in black iron gas pipe
There is almost no way the pipe could develop a pinhole without having a larger area affected. It is under your house and you want to use furnace cement to fix it. I will keep my TV tuned to the news because you will be on it when the house blows up. You do not make "jury rig" patches to gas lines. If you cannot remove the length of pipe, hire a plumber to do it.

: I discovered that a gas pipe, which was against a portion of a brick wall underneath my house had developed a pin hole leak and was losing 50 cubic feet of gas per day.

: I need to know the best way to the hole without replacing the 21 ft. pipe. I am considering the use of furnace cement. What do you think?
