Gas line for dryer


It is a pretty standard fitting. You shouldn't have a problem.

Gas line for dryer


I have a plumber coming out Wednesday to do this for me. He said he will tap into the main line. Another plumber planned on adding a T to the line for the water heater. He said that could restrict the gas flow to the water heater and dryer. One could burn out fast because of trying to get more gas.

Gas line for dryer


"NO" the big DANGER is carbon monoxide poisoning from the burner's one or more starving for gas ! !

the system was sized when the house was build or gas piping was first installed for "ALL"
gas fixtures running at max demand like in the middle of winter the boiler is on, the water heater is on, you have all the extended family over cooking all top burners and oven running
now somebody decides to dry clothes
and the next morning you are the lead story in the news ! ! family sicken or killed by "CARBON MONOXIDE"

MACPLUMB the huge print is annoying, back off a tad. Look around the boards and try to fit in a little.
