    Never did gas line work for a fire pit. Any Pointers? Have a lot of experience with Black pipe and threaded pipe installations but not really sure where to begin on this one. Thiinking maybe subbing it out to a plumber is best?

    Will this be run underground? That's supposed to be run in a special polyethylene gas line with special risers.

    Yes, Underground. Pipe exits house above ground as 1" black pipe. The BBQ grill is tapped off at 1/2". Was planning on taking the other tap and running it underground to the pit. Will dig the trench about 18" as per code. Just not sure about the pipe in the trench part.

    I'm pretty sure that gas lines are required to be installed by licensed gas fitters (usually a lumber with extra licensing). That is how it works in my state (MA).

    licenced gas fitter is the correct way. A plumber is capable but not who I would call to install one.

    We have a gas install going in now for an outdoor kitchen. The gas company is running the line. Has to be pressure tested and approved by town. We dug the trench, and cemented a 4x4 post to attach, gas company runs line.

    I was going to suggest Public Service Electric & Gas. They would send out 8 guys. 2 to do the work and 6 to watch the other two work.
