At an older house in Walnut Creek, the home inspector spotted a flexible brass gas supply pipe going into the side of the heating furnace.
Flexible pipes are very thin wall, so that they can be bent.
The pipe is resting on the sharp edge of the sheetmetal opening.
When a furnace is running, warm air is pushed into the house by a blower motor which sets up a mechanical vibration.
These vibrations can result in the sheetmetal edge cutting through the flexible gas line during operation… not good.
