Gas regulator question.


Pretty sure I know the answer to this. Please verify.

Salesman from wholesaler sold me a gas regulator. He stated that the rep told him this is what they use instead of a twin regulator and it will work just fine for a single step application.

Shame on me for not double checking the inlet pressure of the regulator, but I got it all hooked up and adjusted to 10.5" WC and shut the outlet valve off overnight for peace of mind and it slowly crept up over the course of the night while I slept.

Would over-pressure on the inlet cause this?

I'm going to throw this thing at his face.

Thanks.

I assume that this is propane. Our code specifies that all such regulators used for fixed appliances need to be dual stage. BBQs are one the the exceptions.

Of course that is usually in the utility side, so I don't get into it much. Not to many MH here.

Cheers!
