    Default Drip leg/Sediment trap

    I noticed my dryer (2nd floor) does not have a dirt trap. Is this an "add one ASAP" issue? I was told that "illuminating" appliances do not need one as in stoves, dryers and outdoor BBQ. Just want to make sure that's true.

    If you are referring to sediment trap in the gas line, I think that the only time these are needed/required is when the appliance is permanently plumbed...such as a furnace or water heater. A stove or dryer should not require this to the best of my knowledge.

    Its on the second floor and there should be one at the service entrance. It is fine. Basement might be different.

    Drip legs on Gas lines are required at every vertical drop. Also shall be no shorter than 3" in length. As to the Uniform Plumbing Code. If your dryer is on the second floor then there is probably one below that.
