    Gas Line Reroute

    I live in the Houston area and have Centerpoint Energy. Does anyone know the cost to reroute a gas line. I am about to start construction on a pool but my service line runs through about 1 foot of where the pool will be. I cannot move the pool over due to size limitations in my yard. Called Centerpoint but they won't call me back for another 2-3 days they say.

    Welcome to TFP,

    Your pool builder should be able to give you an idea, and if not, a local plumber should as well.

    Thank you!. Just now starting this process. The PB has basically said he thinks it's inexpensive but does not get involved because Centerpoint will not let him. Think I will call a local master plumber and see if they can give me an idea.

    Going through the exact same situation. Centerpoint just called and told me $350 for reroute.

    I paid $250 for up to 20ft plus $6/ft over the first 20ft. That included the 1 1/2" line, trenching and installation. It did not include filling the trench. That is in Las Vegas for a new line. Not rerouting an existing line but it should give folks an idea.

    That is very helpful. Can I ask what number you called? I can't get anyone to call me back. I have a master plumber coming out Friday for a quote.

    The main centerpoint number 713-659-2111. Took 5 business days for a call back though. They sent an email with some documents to sign and a link to pay the $350. Now we have to wait for the contractor to call us and make an appointment to see the yard and then reroute.

    I just had to move 90 feet of 5/8 line from my lpg tank feeding my generator since it ran right down the middle of the pool. Labor and material was $1800. Best part was, i got to pay that bill twice since I installen the generator 5 years ago and never once thought I would drop a pool in the yard
