Rules regulating manufactured housing are specified by the Manufactured Housing Division. Under Nevada law manufactured homes shall have their gas systems tested with a manometer gauge. (This is an instrument capable of measuring in water column (WC)"). The test shall be conducted with the entire system pressurized between 10 inches of water column (10 inches WC) and 14 inches of water column (14 inches WC) for a minimum time period of 10 minutes. When this test is successfully completed, the Building Inspector will authorize utility connection. (See Nevada Administrative Code 489.440.)
