Gas Line Fitting To A New Kitchen Stove Quest.

Hi,
Will be calling in HVAC contractor to plumb in a new gas kitchen stove.
Presumably, he knows how to do it. Would like to learn a bit more about how it's done beforehand.
So was wondering:
With rigid gas line pipe, and the stove constrained to fit in the 30" opening, how can a rigid pipe gas line ever be made to fit without using some kind of adjustable "something," or a flex line (which the town gas inspector doesn't want).
Is it all done by "precise" measurements, or is there some kind of length adjustable union or whatever that is used ?
Thanks, Bob

God..I HOPE he knows how to do it...:) Here, our HVAC licence includes the Pipe Fitters card, so we have to know what we are doing... Now..if he can put that knowledge to use....well..LOL... Just kidding there..

If your town is going by International Gas Code, as most are now, a stainless flex line is permitted, and if your HVAC guy is well versed in this, he will prob come off the stove with a short section of iron pipe and go into a secondary regulator per that code, and then go to something like TracPipe. TracPipe and the related products are 100% permitted in ALL jurisdictions and can cut the time to install a gas line down greatly.

IF your inspector demands hard pipe the entire way, first, I would suggest he get with the program, and learn that stainless steel flex gas line is permissible, and then, before he kills the entire project cause you just argued with God in his mind (lol) let the guy run the iron pipe. Normally, an experenced pipefitter can get it to within 1/8th to a 1/4 inch with no problems. The problem I see here is how in hell you gonna be able to move the stove with it black piped all the way out? That would NEVER fly here.

Hello:
Thanks for all the info.
Might someone please expund a little on what one of the posters mentioned regarding going to a "secondary regulator" before entering the stove ?
Isn't the pressure correct from the main reducer/regulator that's outside the house? Why a second one required ?
thanks again, Bob --------------

Totally agree with you. The flex should also be long enough to get the range out for cleaning. I can tell you though, if you have to pull one out for repair, you'll probably be the first to do it.

I totally agree with you and you just did it. The last part about calling him a retard was a good one. Can I use that one the next time you call me a idoit and hack to get the best of me or do you need Pauls permission to do so?
Now are you tring to bring the Scum of alt.hvac over to alt.home.repair are you now ?

And those without a f*ckin clue try to slam those that know the facts.

You also know the one about how stupid ass comments towards a poster to get a rise out of them is like the Special Olympics right? You might win, but you are still retarded.

Precise can be within a 1/4". It takes a little practice and experience. Most places allow flex for a stove so it can be moved.

Yes your right but Paul and Steve knows that when you call me a hack and a a**hole on the group with no reply. Some will see it as a good reply by some so called respectiable newsgroup members that can lie straight faced and not laugh. I had to reply up till now but have made my point and will just let them rave on with the disrespect and lies.

TURTLE!
CALM DOWN!
I've been reading your posts for years and have the greatest respect for you. That hasn't changed.
I consider you one of the nicest and sweetest and knowledgable gentlemen I've ever read posts from. Keep up the helpful posts and ignore those that malign you. Turn the other cheek. It has been done by many other heroic figures in the past and I think you can do it now. Reach down deep in your heart and try to forgive them.
But keep those helpful post coming. You have many supporters out here that look forward to your every post.

Turtle, you are one of the greatest assets this group has. Anyone who reads this group regularly knows who you are. You shed those negative comments like water off a duck's back. You don't need to reply.
I once had a respected mentor who said that, "If a wise man argues with a fool, few will know which is which".

Terrys unwilling to admit that I have tried and tried to get him to drop things...this is where I have the most issue with him...he allows things to get to normal, and suddenly, hes back on it. Matt left hvac, and now its Terry and Bill again.. I do not always agree with Terry, he knows it, and thats fine, but he really needs to understand, that most professionals, really do not trust him, his advice, nor his way of conducting business, as hes admitted time and time again to doing things wrong, and not caring if its right. THATS the problem guys... You take his advice...well, thats your problem.
