Gas Stove Install


I have 2 appliances on gas and I want to add a gas stove. The black pipe gas line is accessible in the area where I want to put the stove. I would like to cut the pipe in 2, add a T joint and then run the new T section to my gas stove. Question, how do I cut it and add a T joint? I checked with the city and I do have the capacity on the line to add the stove. Thanks

You should probably have a hardware store or Lowes cut and thread a couple sections of black steel pipe and or go with some nipples and a union. Length has to be perfect on the second option though.

If you are asking this question, I think you need to undertake an easier DIY plumbing project than gas pipe fitting. In most jurisdictions this work would require a permit and a license.

A leak in a water pipe can get things wet, a leak in a gas pipe has much bigger ramifications.

Also, how could the city know you have enough capacity without an inspection. They may be saying your incoming gas service has enough capacity. But does the pipe you are trying to tap have enough capacity?
