coupling in low pressure nat'l gas
Posted by the do it man! on July 22, 2002 at 19:27:40:
I'm upgrading and relocating the gas valve for my fireplace as I install a new mantel w/ columns on the front. The new valve is a "Dante" brand w/ a key for operation. The gas line is 1/2" threaded black pipe. Downstream of the new valve I need to match up to an existing screwed ell which is piped to the firebox. Is using a "union" the right choice in the last "fit-up" piece? I need something because I'll be stuck w/ a piece of threaded pipe w/ right hand threads on both ends. Any other suggestions? Although the flex hoses for appliance hookups would work, I do not want to put one inside my wall where I can't inspect it.
