CSST Safety Solution
Bonding and Grounding
  If you find CSST after inspecting your home or business, it is strongly recommended that you determine if the CSST system is properly bonded and grounded. A bonding device and conductor should be installed on your natural gas system in order to reduce the chances of a natural gas leak or fire. Bonding is provided primarily to prevent a possible electric shock to people who come in contact with the gas piping and other metal objects when there is a failure in a branching circuit. Nearby lightning strikes can also result in an electrical surge and can potentially puncture a hole in the CSST due to arcing. The International Code Council has issued guidance for proper bonding and grounding.

If you are unsure as to whether your home has CSST or whether it has been properly bonded and grounded, contact a licensed electrician to arrange for a professional inspection.
