BBQ Gas Line Installation Guide

The telltale signs are there.  The restless feeling that won’t be relieved until you remember where your hammock got packed last fall. The siren call of summer is here and it’s past time to fire up the old barbecue. And it’s never too late to “up” your grilling game with a BBQ gas line installation. You want to always be ready to fire up the grill at a moment’s notice.

An Easy Guide to BBQ Gas Line Installation

To begin, while there is a lot to be said for traditional charcoal briquettes, but quick and clean are not to descriptive terms that jump immediately to mind.  A different set of problems exists for propane tanks as well.  Clunky, bulky, and always empty on the day of the big game, propane gas owners have their own reasons for improving this year’s grilling season. Learn everything you need to know to when running a gas line to a BBQ.

Before you start installing your BBQ line, it’s necessary to review your natural gas capacity, local permitting requirements, and municipal codes.  In addition to risking a fine for unpermitted work, a major part of the permitting process involves certified inspections designed to ensure proper BBQ gas line installation.

You’re are dealing with something with the potential to explode.  Make sure you cross all your “T’s” and dot your “I’s” when it comes to adhering to local building codes.  Homes not up to code can prove hazardous to you, your family, your home, and your neighbor’s property.

The restrictions often include requirements regarding how far from utilities and structural units you must run your gas lines. Or how deep to bury them.  You may learn all you really need to do is install a quick shut-off valve that will only be used when you grill.  Lastly, a give your HOA a quick call. The HOA can give you recommendations on the types of grills approved for your home community.

Call Before You Dig

Also, call your local utility company before you start to dig and install the BBQ gas line. This is a best practice because they may need to come out and turn your gas on and off during the installation.  Connecting gas lines require specialized tools, valves, pipes, and supplies to successfully install into your BBQ.  Seeking out expert help is critical to safely outfit your patio grill with a continuous flow of natural gas. Consulting an expert also ensures you and your family will be able to safely use the grill all season long.
