Installing a gas line can be tricky, and it’s always best to hire a professional. But if you want to learn for yourself, Live Free uploaded a video on their Youtube channel called “TIPS on how to install gas line,” where they describe how to do it in a safe way. Let’s find out more!
Getting Started Safely
Firstly, it’s important to put the gas valve in a reachable area so you can turn it off whenever you need to. Secondly, you should lubricate your pipes with Pipe Joint Compound. Any gas line installer uses it because it will allow you to tighten the joints when you use a pipe wrench. Once it’s tight enough, it seals.
Remember to avoid Teflon tape because it might not be allowed according to installation codes in some areas.
It’s also beneficial to use two sharp pipe wrenches because it makes the job easier. Otherwise, it’ll take a long to tighten everything. You can also try using a metal file to sharpen the teeth of your wrench.
