Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Do I need to provid gas auto shut-off valve before on the market?
Which city or county required gas auto shut-off valve?
Thanks

ANSWER:
The 2002 County of Los Angeles Mechanical Code requires an automatic gas shut off to be interconnected to any required fire-extinguishing systems protecting grease hoods and ducts. Only the fuel supply to the equipment under the grease hood is required to have an automatic gas shut off valve.

Seismic gas shut off valves are not required by the 2002 County of Los Angeles Plumbing Code, but earthquake actuated gas shut off valves may be required by jurisdictions not served by the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works.
