    Gas Line from House Propane Tank?

    Welcome, No I can not answer that, what is the run length? For an 80' run of 1/2" pipe the capacity is 75 MBH (M=1000 - B=BTU - H=HOUR) (1 MBH = 1,000 BTUs / Hr) So an 80' run of 1/2" pipe will provide 75,000 BTUs, minus loss for fittings. 5500' ain't Los Gatos, it's maybe 350?, I lived in San Jose for 20 years. You must have a home in the Sierras.

    My work is always "well above" code or what a Jack Wad plumber would do (speaking locally), as far as permits, the County can kiss my #$%, I only pay the ridiculous permit cost if the project will be noticeable such as the remodel I did. Sorry I do not work for a LP Gas Company so I have little knowledge about that specialty.

    How are these measured, or is that something the local propane people can do sorry but I am not very well versed on this aspect of propane.

    By that I assume you mean water column (WC), which is not stated on the regulator, as it is adjustable?
  5. I am currently running a gas line from my home propane tank around 3 sides of the house to my grilling / smoking (and home-brew) stations. I have one more stick to be cut and threaded tomorrow. I am not sure but will the main tank regulator be good enough, or will I have to continue to use the " tank" regulators also? I am sure someone has done this around here.
