Water is under a *lot* more pressure. Gas is typically supplied at a pressure
of about 6" WC, which is somewhere around 0.2 psi. It's not unusual for the
pressure in a city water supply to be four or five hundred times that. Even a
low-pressure well system is at 100x the pressure of a typical gas supply.

What btu are burners total, Mine was 15000x3 plus a side burner of
10000 for 55000 total. Many are smaller, some are more. There are
charts for pipe size, length, and btus that are easy to look up. If
its 3- 10000 btu burners 1/2 might do fine.
