Default CSST?

Is this considered CSST? I usually see it with yellow coating. Didn't see any markings on it.

I think pro-flex had an orangy (pretty sure that's a word) color like that at one time. How old was the house?

Here are some ways to distinguish between CSST and FAC. A common CSST sheathing color is yellow. Other common sheathing colors are black and orange. FAC are often yellow too and perhaps that's part of the identification confusion. Other common FAC colors are silver, gray, black and blue. CSST is usually larger N" and 1"+) than FAC (316" and ½"). One good way to distinguish between the two is that FAC are between 1 foot and 6 feet long with a factory-installed connector on each end. Another good way is that FAC are painted and the corrugation is visible while CSST is sheathed and the corrugation is not visible.

If that was in Alberta the plastic sheathed power line would be wrong.
