      Is a drip leg needed when running a soft copper gas line up from the basement to service a LP fireplace on the mian level?

      It depends on the local code. In my experience Texas required no drip legs, but in Washington State everything gets one. When in doubt put one in. I have never had an inspector tell me to remove one.

      Logically it should not matter if your local code does or does not require one to be fitted – it is just plain commonsense and dam good practice to fit them on all LPG installations as well as run all pipework from the drip pipe to the appliance with a slight uphill grade.
      I cannot ever see the situation where any Inspector would ever tell you to remove one from an installation but I can beleive at times that an inspector may ask what one is for!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
