In response to Re: Adding into a Gas Line
6000 BTU's is maximum for a(gas) bathroom heater(in Texas). I am more curious as to if I have ample supply coming from the 1 1/4" main feed?

: You might want to check if the bathroom gas heater would be approved. In some areas gas appliances cannot be installed in bedrooms or bathrooms.

: : I would like to know if I can add a 6000 btu(Dearborn)Heater in a bathroom and a 30000 btu cook top in the kitchen and just tap into the existing gas line?
: : The main line coming into the house is 1 1/4"(20') and it presently supplies a Water Heater(12'@1"),Heater Furnace(15'@3/4"),and Gas Log Fireplace(34'@1").
: : The extension to the bathroom heater and Cook Top will both be about 15' at 3/4". Since neither run alone is over 20', do I need to have a pressure test?
: : Any Help/Advice would be greatly appreciated.-Dan
