I spent the last few days measuring and such and yesterday bought the pipe - 1 inch black steel piping, cut to fit where it will run. Awesome, no problems there. Got the pipe dope, also a roll of yellow pipe tape (though I'm not sure if I really should use both - I've seen yay and nay online), the fittings, ball valve, etc.

I have a six inch section at the bottom of the drop down the wall on a T fitting to serve as a sediment trap.

My question is... well, I've never done a gas line before. It's only being run about eight feet total, coming off a T-joint on an existing pipeline that has an open spot (currently has a plug in it). I know about using soapy water to check for leaks etc... but what little tricks or trip-ups do I need to watch out for? commercial kitchen

One thing I have found myself wondering is how I want to secure this to the wall - I'm thinking one or two hose straps, going to a wooden block for a backer and drilled into the cinderblock wall should suffice?  

 

my issue got solved!!

Using 2015 edition, See IFGC Section 402.6 for pressure consideration.  See Section 403.10.3. If you can't used a threaded fitting greater than 4 inches then another joining method needs to be used...such as welding.... although there might be proprietary fittings that might join pipe without welding.
