I am dealing with tight spaces (holes in the ceiling in the basement) to get a gas line to a gas stove and trying to figure out the best/proper way to do this. I would prefer to use CSST because it is just easier given the working space.
There is already a gas line run to the stove, but it's 6" away from the wall. I need to get it right up against the wall due to a modern stove. The old stuff is a bit scary looking, I'd like to start semi-fresh. The nearest junction with a solid black pipe is maybe 5 feet away from the wall so I'd like to start from there.
The CSST I have worked with before from McMaster says it may be connected directly to a fixed appliance. I am guessing a stove, even with anti tip devices installed is not really considered fixed.
Can I use CSST and somehow fix that to the floor, so I sort of have an "outlet", then use the proper "appliance" flex line (which I believe is much less rigid, so when you pull the stove out for maintenance it gives?) directly to the stove. I could also run up through the floor behind the wall of the stove, then come out through the wall behind the stove. It doesn't really matter either way to me.
