Gas Heater and Water Heater Drip Leg or Sediment Trap is Required

Drip legs and sediment traps are a capped off section of gas line that is designed and installed to catch debris or moisture in the gas line to keep the system clean. Unfortunately, the lack of, or incorrect installation of, a drip leg or sediment trap is another common item found by home inspectors daily. In this case, a drip leg was improperly installed in a horizontal position and will not perform its required function. Moisture and debris will simply pass by the assembly and into the appliance. Check your gas lines at your Forced Air Unit(s) and Gas Water Heater(s) to make sure this required assembly is installed. Hiring the most qualified and thorough home inspector will ensure that missing or incorrectly installed drip legs and sediment traps are identified before you complete your home purchase so you can make sure you have a proper installation.
