I need some advice from the electricians in the audience.
We are in the process of selling our house and the buyer's inspector reported our CSST gas pipe that services the gas fireplace is not bonded. From what I've seen online this means it isn't grounded. I guess this wasn't code in 2005 when the system was installed. It seems like it would be an extremely easy fix given what we have to work with.
First, we have a pair of 100 lbs propane tanks side by side attached to a regulator and feeding a copper line. That is outdoors. The copper line goes to the fitting shown below at the side of the house. This is where the gas line transitions to CSST, which then runs all the way to the gas fireplace.
What I want to know if if I can simply drive a ground rod into the earth just below that point. Connect a #6 copper wire to the rod with a bonding clamp and on the other end with a bonding clamp to the brass fitting where the line connects to the CSST.
The other,much more difficult alternative is to run that #6 wire back to the panel as shown in the video below. At the end of the video there is a very short segment where they connect to a ground rod. This is why I think my option is legal.
