In response to Re: Natural gas line - is 1 inch enough?
The plug in the tee is a test plug, so use a 3/4xclose nipple, a 3/4 x 3/4 x 1 bullhead tee and reinstall the test plug on the new tee.

: Thanks for your response!

: What about my question #2? (The stub coming off the meter is 3/4. Can I go from 3/4 at the meter and bump it up to 1 inch right there, or do I have to removed the T at the meter and install one that comes off at 1"?) What is your opinion on that?

: : Using the standard computations, that 1" line can handle 239,000 btu's. If the three appliances add up to less than that it will be the correct size.

: : : Hi, I need to run a gas line from my meter to a gas stove/oven, large gas dryer, and gas grill. All of which are about 70 feet from the meter. I have two questions:

: : : 1 - I was planning on running 1 inch pipe to the first appliance, then going to 3/4 to the next appliance, then 1/2 to the next (they are all about 10 feet apart). Will that be sufficient?

: : : 2 - The stub coming off the meter is 3/4. Can I go from 3/4 at the meter and bump it up to 1 inch right there, or do I have to removed the T at the meter and install one that comes off at 1"?
