This is a question I asked more as an afterthought to another one I posted a
ago regarding the desireability of gas shut off valves in a residence.
But, I have started really thinking about it a bit, and would like to pose
it as it's own
question, as I feel I would like to know about it before doing any work on
the gas line valve installations
I am planning.
Regarding gas appliances like clothes dryers and gas stoves: is it
customary these days that they
be connected with a short length of flexible gas hose (not sure what the
right term is), or are they
still normally connected rigidly to the gas pipe like the house we are
moving into (about 25 yrs old) ?
Should I have them changed ?
Anything rigid like this tends to scare me; I cannot help but feel a
is a really good idea, but I really don't know how necessary, or desireable,
it is ?
BTW: what's a flexible gas line hose called ?
Is it safe ?
What certifications should it have ?
