This is the situation. The gas line splits at some point for the water heater and the gas dryer. There is a clamp attached on the gas line. There is a metal wire protruding from the clamp and that wire tied along the gas line for the gas dryer, and ends where the gas line changes into a flexible gas pipe. It does not appear to be tied to the gas line (sorta like a ground would)
Question: What does it do? Do I need it, or can I remove it?
I am trying to include a picture, but I've been unsuccessful so far. The forum gives an error message that my .jpg file is of an unknown format.
And I apologize if I posted this in the wrong subforum. If that is the case, please do let me know the correct one.
