OK I have googled this til i'm blue with no answer. I have a ventless gas fireplace in my house, and due to code changes I can't get the gas company to put a tank outside because it is suddenly too close to the windows flanking my fireplace. Why anyone would run the gas logs with the windows open is a topic for another day.
Anyway - my choices are: rip out the gas logs, petition the neighborhood to get PNC to run lines in (yeah right), pay the gas company a zillion dollars to run gas lines all the way around the slab from the clear other side of the house to meet code, or buy my own tank and hook it up to the logs ourselves.
Can anyone tell me how to do this? How to make the connection between a 20/50 lb propane tank and the hose sticking out of the ground behind my fireplace?
I'll give ya a Kenya Tree lol...or pretty much anything you want out of my aquarium if ya wanna come hook us up!
My husband is good with all this stuff, having worked in the marine and diesel fields his whole life, but we just don't know what the "thingy" is to connect the two...if someone can tell us what to buy that would probably solve the problem.
Does anyone know how I find out what the right regulator is?
All I have on the hose from the house is a threaded cap like a water hose. No one at Lowe's or Home Depot had any idea what would be needed.
