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
or whatever that is used ?
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.
Thanks for all the info.
Might someone please expund a little on what one of the posters mentioned
going to a "secondary regulator" before entering the stove ?
Isn't the pressure correct from the main reducer/regulator that's outside
Why a second one required ?
This is Turtle.
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
And those without a f*ckin clue try to slam those that know the facts.
yea..I know about that...your credentials in business are?
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.
This is Turtle.
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.
Terry, lighten up.
If you notice, I never got into your bullshit over in alt.hvac, and you can
thank Noon for that...
You dont get it here, and this isnt the place, but if you want to discuss it
over in alt.hvac, I would be glad to enlighten you.
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.
