|In response to Re: Shortening natural gas line|
You will not be able to work on it with the gas on and do it safely. As long as every appliance has its own gas valve, the building would probably only have a main shut off. Theoretically, it might be able to be done, but I doubt that you will find any plumber willing to risk his insurance policy that he could do it successfully.
: Hi all,
: I had a plumber come and look at it and his conclusion was that only we can shorten the pipe is to get access to my neighbors space and find the joint. If the joint is in the service cooridor then the pipe cannot be removed since we have no way of getting to the joint. I should also mention that he says that there is only one gas cutoff for the whole building so we are going to have to work with the gas on (building will not turn it off)
: My questions are:
: Is it possible that a 1960's 25 story building would have only one gas cutoff for the building?
: Is there anyway to cut a line with gas in it?
: Sorry for the long post but I am out of options presently.
