use with Natural gas. It is design-certified by
CSA International for LP (propane or
butane) gases with appropriate conversion.
The gas line must include 1/8" NPT

test gauge connection, immediately
upstream of the gas connection to the dryer.
1/2" IPS pipe is recommended.
3/8" approved aluminum or copper tubing is
acceptable for lengths under 20 ft (6.1 m) if
local codes and gas supplier permit.
If you are using Natural gas, do not use
copper tubing.
3/8" flare x 3/8" NPT adapter fitting between
dryer pipe and 3/8" approved tubing.
Lengths over 20 ft (6.1 m) should use larger
tubing and a different size adapter fitting.
If your dryer has been converted to use LP
gas, 3/8" LP compatible copper tubing can
be used. If the total length of the supply line
is more than 20 ft (6.1 m), use larger pipe.
NOTE: Pipe-joint compounds that resist
the action of LP gas must be used. Do not
use TEFLON®† tape.

An individual manual shutoff valve must be
installed within six (6) feet (1.8 m) of the

installed in accordance with the B149.1,

It is recommended that an individual manual
shutoff valve be installed within six (6) feet

The location should be easy to reach for
opening and closing.
