Quick Connect natural gas - size matters

Post by RichardG » Mon Jul 20, 2009 3:35 am

Hi, When my natural gas line was installed professionally, a quick connect coupling was installed on the end of it so the hose from the then natural gas barbeque which it turns out had a smaller end piece (diameter of the hose is also smaller than the one that came with the new natural gas bbq) would connect into the quick connect coupler attached to the natural gas line. Years passed and I just assembled a new natural gas barbeque. Much to my surprise and frustration because I didn't keep the old hose, I found that the diameter of the end piece of the new hose (the diameter of the new hose is noticably wider than the old hose) is to big to fit into the existing quick connect coupling attached to the natural gas line. The new bbq included a larger quick connect part which I can see has the same diameter as the natural gas pipeline but at the moment, the end of the natural gas line has the smaller quick connect firmly attached. If I remove the original quick connect coupling, I'm confident that I will have no trouble installing the new one but before I do that, I'd prefer leaving the original installation alone. I am wondering if I can by an adapter which would have a smaller end that will fit into the existing smaller quick connect but will also have the larger diameter quick connect at the other end so the new hose can connect to it. Is there a store I can buy such an adapter at? Thank you!

It would help if people knew your location mate. Canada (which province), US ( which state), Australia, Timbuktu, Zaire, Russia, all have different laws. You sure don't wanna go voiding your home owner's insurance.

Good point! I'm in the GTA of Ontario, Canada. I was hoping that there would be a quick connect adapter route because that would avoid tampering with the professional installation. It may be that even if I had kept the hose from the original bbq that it would not have fit the fitting on the new bbq on the theory that the end of the original hose that connects to the bbq would have been smaller too. Thanks for whatever suggestion you may have.
