Never heard of a strainer. What is it?. Thanks.
Hi Donald1950 a strainer is basically a filter that keeps dirt and other things from clogging up the gas line or gas pressure regulator. Thanks for checking out our video

What if the drip leg is outside. Could it freeze
Ryan Tettenburn (7 months ago)
Some drip legs are outside. For instance, stand alone generators.

Does orientation matter ?
it can, depends on the gas pressure regulator, be sure to check your installation instructions before installing

I was going to pass this on to our technical staff but decided not to.  I wish he would have covered the flow direction requirements for the strainer and regulator and adjustments. The main failure mode for us is the regulator installed backwards by the installer. We sell about 20,000 commercial gas appliances a year and direction, pressure rating, and BTU capacity under sizing are our main issues.
Mike, great point maybe we will do a follow up video addressing this, thanks for checking us out

You have moisture in your gas.  I had the same issue and my supplier had to come out and drain my tank and refill.

is it safe to install Gas Regulator under cooktop and behind electric oven? or gas regulator should install in next cabinet in kitchen?

Thanks for vids... I'm Asian... This knowledge will help a lot if people here... ;-):-):-D:-D:-D What I install recently not a "drip leg",, just a "bleed off" valve... because we usually use gas tank (12Kgs)... Bleed off valve function is to bleed "other gas" which usually makes kitchen burner difficult to fire up.. This "drip leg" will needs to install when my country is able to distribute gas... (supply gas from city)

Sentence problem: *a lot of people *we usually have gas tank *kitchen burner = stove

I'm gald I found this video.  my gen set was set up without a drip tube or strainer, and it ran for years, but now is not getting enough gas.  I speculate that this is the problem.  I have a fisher regulator to step down the pressure before my garrettson regulator and I was wondering if one or both regulators need replaced, or if they can be repaired or cleaned. does anyone know if the first regulator would be the only one compromised?  should I start be replacing only the fisher regulator first? I appreciate any advise as to the best way to fix this problem.  thanks for the vid.

But why are you gald about it ??? You have no reason to be angry at the video !
Wil Don (3 years ago)
+rob l Did you fix your problem? I think the best way is set up the drip tube and strainer before regulator, and then you should inspect both of regulator inside, You will find the way of clean or repair the regulator.

OK, you told me everything BUT what I wanted to know: THE REGULATOR !!! You talked about everything leading up to the regulator, but never even got to the regulator. What about installing it? Adjusting? Safety precautions? DUH!
James, great questions, most of which depend on whose gas pressure regulator you are using, typically you wnat 3 to 5 pipe diameterns upstream and aboutt the same downstream, some regulators are less senstive to this, be sure to check your gas rregulator installation sheet.
