CSST Gas Pipeing - grounding
Corrugated Stainless Steel Tubing (CSST) gas piping systems shall be
bonded to the electrical grounding electrode system.
The purpose of the bonding jumper required is to reduce the likelihood of damage to
the CSST caused by the electrical energy from an indirect lighting strike.
In the case of an indirect strike, the electrial energy could travel along the metal
piping and tubing and jump off to other metal conponents in the building, This
causes an arcing that could burn and perforate the wall of the CSST tubing due to
the lack of thickness of its exterior wall thus causing a gas leak.
