part of the LP-Gas supply system. Consult with your local LP-Gas
dealer for details concerning proper equipment and installation.
Piping must be clean and free from scale or burr.
Before attempting to ignite the appliance, all gas fittings and
connections must be thoroughly checked for gas leaks. Apply a
small amount of a mild soap and water solution to all fittings
and connections and observe for escaping bubbles. If any leaks
are detected, shut off the gas supply to the appliance
immediately. Wait a minimum of five minutes, repair the leak(s)
and retest for leakage. Dry all fittings and connections after leak
testing.
