          The door will not shut with the regulator on its side. I turned the gas off at the meter and disconnected the regulator and valve to clean out any trash that could foul the regulator. I always blow out the feed to the regulator and check the pressure before the regulator.
          So when in operation the valve is in the A position not in position B on its side.

            Not to stir the pot again and I realize that that's the way it's done down there but just how much less expensive is it really to put the regulator outside and pipe larger to the appliance? Hell though I hate the crap, you could at least go from the 2nd stage regulator (outside) to the appliance with uggg... CSST and save some time. I really can't believe that they let you guys do that. I'm here to tell you that if anyone around these parts did that the inspector would probably have us before the board for incompetence. Even though everyone does it like that I think that I would stop before something happens and everyone ends up standing before a judge. Liability is everything these days.

              The new systems I install do not look like that Nhmaster. The new work I do the customer is explained the pros and cons of different materials/systems and I give my opinion. In my opinion a low pressure system is the safer system hands down. I have installed low pressure,medium pressure and high pressure systems with various materials. Now with repairs.....selling a repipe for 2-3 grand and chopping the house up doesn't sell to well these days and to be honest I dont waste my time offering it. So I'm usually just working with existing pipe systems and thats that.

              I personally do not like gas and will not have it in my house. I tell people that all the time
