Propane Pipe Size


I recently replaced old copper tubing in my house with CSST. I have only a dryer and stove being fed. I ran 1/2 inch into the house about 12 feet to a tee fitting which branches off 10 feet to the dryer and about 10 to the stove. I realized after i connected everything that the old copper was 3/8 and not 1/2. Will this difference in my tubing affect pressure to my appliances at all?

Nope,.... Pressure is set by the regulator,...

The larger pipin' just allows better flows,....

If you had re-piped with smaller pipe you could have had pressure loss due to friction caused by the smaller pipe. However, since you installed larger pipe, and as long as it is sized correctly, you should be ok. If I remember correctly, 1/2" CSST sizes similar to 5/8" copper.
