    appliance gas shutoff valve accessible? - moved by author

    I'VE MOVED THIS TO THE "General Plumbing Forum" FOR GREATER VISIBILITY

    I'm rearranging a laundry room configuration and don't want to move a gas line fitting. CA Title 24, Part 5 requires an appliance gas shutoff valve be "accessible":

    What does accessible mean? Can the shutoff valve be adjacent next to the dryer (12"), but located within a sink cabinet where one can access it by opening the cabinet door?

    Thanks,
    Murray

    I am not a plumber, but I just reviewed some simple code rules for this when I added a new line and valve to my stove. Basically, you cant have it hidden within a wall, so in your case behind a door is still accessable by definition. Wait for some pro's to back that up though...
