I went to Orchard Supply Hardware to buy a gas line. The gas line said it's for heaters, stoves, fireplaces, and wall heaters. The guy at the store said it's fine for a dryer also.
So, I go to install it, and the hex portion of the fittings bottomed out before the flared fittings sealed, meaning they didn't really seal.
Are there different types of flared fittings?
The bag says they're 3/8" Flare connection nuts.
I ended up replacing the fittings on the dryer with fittings that had a longer thread engagement, but now will likely have to do the same at the wall, since I realized later the valve coming out of the wall has the same problem (which I'm not looking forward to - I don't really want to mess with the wall pipe if I don't have to).
Are there different lengths of 3/8" male flared fittings? Is there an adapter available?
Thanks for any tips.
