gas line, left/right or union


we are modifying a duplex to turn a small closet into a laundry area. in doing this we need to tap into the existing gas line to add a tee that will supply the gas dryer (yes we have sufficient intake air), but i would like to know if we can use a 3/4 union to attach old and new lines, or do i need a right/left nipple to be code compliant.
Thanks! Steve

Unions can be used as necessary but they're required to remain accessible. Can't conceal them in walls and floors.

Excellent and thank you.

Does anyone have advice on the best way to terminate a gas valve for the laundry area? A pipe going out the wall with a 1/4 turn valve is a bit rustic. I am wondering if there is a gas housing something like the water/waste housing for the laundry supply, or the nice little water on/off housing for an ice-maker.

Sure do. These just hit the market and they're pretty slick. They're new enough that you might need to go to a plumbing supply house for them....I doubt the box stores will have them. Sioux Chief just mailed me the literature on them late last week.

1/2" and 3/4" NPT pipe thread versions are available for threaded gas pipe.
