Gas Pipes from meter

Postby rodz » Sun May 13, 2007 4:40 pm

Hi im having my gas meater moved to the front wall of my house. Originaly it was on the side but the previous tennant had built a lean-to on the side of the house making the path to the door now a hall way. How deep do the pipes need to be buryed? does it need to be 50mm below the lowest point of the floor (ive got a step half way along) or does it need to be deeper? thanx

Minimum depth 375mm below open ground and drives.

Minimum depth 40mm for copper or steel within concrete floor with pedestrian traffic.

Has to be protected against corrosion
