Yellow flex pipe for gas


How expensive and easy or difficult is it to run flex pipe for a gas stove? The length is about 10 ft.

Easy and simple to do but you should not be doing it.
Your gas supplyer should be doing it.
Your also going to need a shut off valve behind the stove and a flex line run from the supply to the stove.

Done wrong and house goes boom.

+1 get someone certified. Each appliance has to have a shut off valve at the wall.

This is inside a wall and will have 2 shutoffs. One at the beginning and one at the stove. The run is 20 ft. Is this good to do or not? I will run black pipe if this is not a good idea.

Frank,

If you're running a gas line inside of a wall then black iron is the way to go. Then, as Joe mentions, a flex line from the wall to the appliance.
