    The work DEFINITELY needs a permit and a journeyman gas fitter.

    Not a DIY job.

    If there is no gas permit and inspection on the job your homeowners insurance may not cover you if there is any kind of problem.

    If you try to sell your home in the future, and a home inspector comes in to look at your home,
    they will look at any gas fireplaces, heaters, etc. to see if they were permitted and inspected.

    Really? I did it myself, with help from my dad. Was pretty easy too. That was 5 years ago now, and no issues.

    Sure. You can also have this..
    (flooded Basement)


    Or this..
    (electrical fire)


    Or this..
    (ceiling collapse)


    However, if you use your head, read up on how to do it, and then test for gas after wards, then I think you'll be fine. Or, you could just buy into the crap that it's all black magic and if you touch a gas line you're going to blow up your house and kill your family because there's no way in hell you're smart enough to figure out how to screw 2 pipes into each other, pressurize the line to 15 PSI then do a soap test. Or once that's all done, if you're still paranoid, put a NG detector in your basement near where you ran the line to watch for ongoing leaks.

    Yeah. Nobody is smart enough to do that.

    Moving or placing a gas line in Calgary needs to be done by a gasfitter, it also needs a permit.

    I know I wouldn't want a neighbor whose gasfitting experience is the 1-2-3 book from Home Depot messing around with his gas lines.

    Well. It couldn't have been that bad as it passed inspection when we did it in 2006.

    Only registered pipe fitters can pull permits for gas. How did you manage to get an inspection without a permit?

    Depends on complexity and length.

    It also depends if any of your lines need to be upgraded to a larger size.

    A simple installation (mostly straight shot, unfinished basement etc...) will run you about $700-1000.

    I just installed a natural gas BBQ at my parents place last weekend..

    shut the gas valve....

    install the "quick release" style fitting using Teflon tape and a sealant over top.. let dry

    run your line point A to B.

    Teflon tape and sealant at the BBQ side of the line... let dry

    Take a mixture of detergent and test for leaks at the connections.

    Viola!

    I think you mean voila.

    The viola is a bowed string instrument. It is the middle voice of the violin family, between the violin and the cello.

    Although I shouldn't be too hard on you, I've seen it spelled "walla" and "wah-lah on other forums.
