A fooking big one.


If you are gas registered, sign up for the combustion chamber here.

If you are not registered, then you have to get someone in who knows what they are doing.

Based on the info you have just provided you will be doing the latter.


Stuff like this can not be done on the cheap.

Read my post dude.

You can't just shop around like this.

You need someone with the correct qualifications to calculate the size based on length of pipe, number of fittings, diversity factor and the number of sleeping bags laid across the route of the pipe.

The phrase "what is your best prrrice my friend?" will do nothing on a job like this.

What matey boy down the road has got away with doesn't equal the correct configuration for you either before you ask. Sorry.

I would err on the side of caution and use 8mm copper maybe upgrading to 10mm depending on how many elbows I used, the fitter that wants to use 42mm hasnt taken diversity in to account.

A RGI with the commercial ticket is the only person who can do this - there`s one who posts here - and he`s partial to curries - but you`re a long way from London ;)

If your thinking agile, he ain't commercial catering, nor has he commercial pipework.

Joe-90 will be along shortly to out all us DIY dopey plumbers to shame and tell you the answer.

although 10mm pipe with pushfits is an answer to your solution its good buts not right.
additional safeguards would be hepworth piping. its flexible so you can run it over applinaces, along walls etc without needly pesky costs like clipping .just put some stickers on it reminding folk not to step on it. (in 10 languages)
others here talking about vents, nonsense. just when its done inform the owner to ask the kitchen staff to make sure the door is open when their doing the thing. that will be sufficent ventilation. straightforward i would have thought. hope i get a freebie at this joint me old mucker :D

I dont know why you say that Alan!

All commercial kitchen doors are kept permanently open to provide ventilation and a quick exit to have the mandatory smoke every few minutes!

Infact 3 catering engineers had a look at the job and they all said three different sizes like I said in the previous post 28mm,35mm and 42mm

So I suppose your mindset you choose the 28 mm one?

I expect he wanted the job and thats why is said 28 mm! He is possibly NOT gas reg and wants a cash job and not to have it inspected by Gas safe who would insist that its correctly upgraded.

Furthermore I see that you want to buy the materials yourself. Most professional gas installers expect to provide the materials themselves and would refuse any job where the owner wants to get them.

I do realise that is why indian takeaways are usually installed like that but it does not make it right!

the chap who said 28mm he is gas safe registered, there's too many unexperienced gas engineers out there even though they're registered you don't know who to go with.
