Many USA houses have either a 3/4 or 1/2 Male Iron Pipe (MIP) stub for a natural gas hookup. For safety, it is wise to have an outside shutoff valve for that.
- 3/4 MIP is an inside diameter. It's about 1 1/6 outside diameter.
- 1/2 MIP is about 3/4 outside diameter.
To extend your existing flexible hose to this hose, you will likely need a 3/8x3/8 Male Flare to Male Iron Pipe (MIP) adapter (412547 see related items) along with yellow gas pipe thread (445150). The same adapter will also allow you to connect the hose to an LP tank's hose end of the regulator.Residential applications will generally require 11 inches water column ~= 0.397 psi. (Weber® says not less than 10 inches of water for its grills.) As long as your regulator reduces the LP tank pressure (they range from 10 to 200 psig) to no more than 0.5psi it will work fine with this hose, and someone here says he's used one for years on his LP patio fireplace.Do not use the 10ft hose without the appropriate regulator! Improper use can cause explosive and fire hazards as well as asphyxiation!
