What if the drip leg is outside. Could it freeze
Ryan Tettenburn (2 months ago)
Some drip legs are outside. For instance, stand alone generators.

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.

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

YOU FORGOT THE 10  PIPE DIAMETERS AFTER THE REGULATOR RULE
rob l (3 years ago)
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 !

+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!
