    That can get expensive if a person has an intricate system.
    One or two measurements off as much as 1/4" and he's out of the wall and bowing drywall.

      yeah, you wouldn't want to try it with an intricate system, but with a quick run I have to imagine its appealing to the diy community

      I use a 300 <.<
      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

        Thanks for the encouragement. No cutting involved...I bought a variety of parts right off the shelf from Lowes and HD (Lowes was out of unions )...ended up with just a couple of short nipples leftover.

        The line was checked for leaks with a sniffer of some sort....it seemed pretty sensitive. I was told by the dealer and the contractor that there's a pressure regulator going into the house that should keep everything within range for a typical residence. The town looked it over and issued a certificate of compliance, so hopefully we're good to go!

        Now, onto the mantel, which I'm a bit more comfortable doing.

          Sorry for the delay...been busy finishing up other things with the fireplace. Thanks for the encouragement. I bought the parts right off the shelf from Lowes and HD (Lowes was out of unions )...ended up with just a couple of short nipples leftover.

                  Damn Tool! Reminding me of a job I have to do tuesday, not liking it.

                  9' up in the air, I wet myself on ladders. Would rather stay grounded at all times.

                      unions are legal at the fixture and outside. nothing inside/ under the building.
