I've replaced my single electric fan oven with a new model (AEG) and as the
old was white and the new one is stainless steel (blame the missus!) we
bought a new gas hob as well to match the new colour.
The fitting for the gas inlet on the new hob however is in a slightly
different place to the old hob and as such I'm going to need to do some new
pipework. Now I know people will say, get a CORGI engineer in etc. etc. but
I'm going to attempt this myself. The fittings I understand are standard
My first question though, as there is a smaller clearance with the top of
the new oven and where the pipe goes into the new hob, I would like to use a
flexible hose instead of steel or copper piping. Can I do this? Is it safe?
If not, then I'm going to have to make up some new piping. If I need 90
degree elbows etc., can I just use standard half inch plumbing fittings? Are
they any particular type for gas? ie. normal water plumbing uses olives on
the end of the pipe with compression fittings. I'm guessing gas pipes have
to be slightly different????
Any help greatly appreciated!
