Fitting a gas cooker

Postby Carlos_dp » Wed Oct 10, 2007 12:39 pm

I've just moved into a new house and want to re-do the kitchen. The previous owners had an electric cooker, but i'd like to fit one with a gas hob. There's a a gas line running from an internal cupboard with the meter in to the boiler on the outside wall of the kitchen. We want to put a cooker somewhere along the line of this pipe, but we're not sure exactly where in will finally go.

Is it possible to get a corgi engineer to put a branch on this line, with a flexible hose to the cooker allowing us to move the exact location at a later date ?

no cooker bayonets have to be located behind the cooker. not in or behind cupboards etc.

Gas cooker hoses have to hang loosely, they are not to be taught or stretched.

Gas hobs abvove ovens are not allowed to be fitted using a flexible hose, they have to be rigid fix (pipe).
