Customer has had grill since 2008 and the pipes where gas comes in has rusted and broken down
I suspect, the piping that was used originally used for the incoming has line was not Black Iron Pipe as required. It was probably galvanized pipe instead. Which, has never, ever been approved for gas delivery piping. Even under the worse conditions, unpainted Black Iron Pipe would not have rusted thru in just 3 years.
Solution: Replace all of the existing gas piping with either Black Iron Pipe (paint it after installation), Flexible Copper Tubing (requires no paint) or Flexible, Stainless Steel, Vinyl Coated Pipe. The piping diameter should be a minimum of 1/2" OD.
If this is not a built-in grill (i.e. Outdoor Kitchen) and is still a cart grill. Code requires that there not only be an accessible gas line shut off valve within 3' feet of the grill. But, from that point on to the grill, it must have a 12' long rubber, quick disconnect, gas hose.
Hope this helped you. Please let be know.
