Thread: Gas Line Question

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Gas Line Question

    I've got a 200K NG Raypak coming tomorrow. There is already gas line running from the meter to a manual shut off valve (which is capped) from a prior heater. My question is can I use flexible gas line to finish the run between the shut off valve and the heater. Probably only be about 2 feet. Also, does there need to be a rigid (iron) nipple coming directly off the heater if I do actually get to use flexible piping? Thanks for all the help.

    I am not positive, but I think I have read that flex is not allowed by code for that application. Might want to check with your local authority. There should also be a T trap (terminology?) before going into the heater I think.

    Not sure that you'll get the flow you need with flex, but I could be wrong. 200k is a fair amount of gas and rigid piping has much less restriction.

    Ive seen it done but you need to verify your local codes on this. Personally I wouldn't do it.

    Looks perfect to my limited understanding ... way better than the hack done at the house I bought.
