Re: Wood, Diesel or propane bulkhead heating stove?
Reading this thread and a few others similar topic. I'm wondering if someone can help clarify on propane system install. We've got an existing propane system that surveyor said needs fixing. Right now there are two appliances; stove and hot water heater in the head (and we may want to add a bulkhead salon heater unless we decide to go diesel with that...) Problem is that the PO installed one propane line that has a "t" at the stove to a copper line all the way to the hot water heater in the head. We need one fuel line to each appliance from the fuel source but can we run a hose from tank to the copper line or do we need to rip out all the copper line so we have one single "unbroken" fuel line (ie, hose) to appliance?
Seems to me code language is vague on this detail;
"A-188.8.131.52 Fuel supply lines shall be continuous lengths of tubing, piping, or hose from the regulating device, solenoid valve, or leak detector to the appliance, or to the flexible section at the appliance."
