Trying to fit a 10mm Alde Bubble leak detector into OLD 1/2" od copper pipe.
(on A boat)
Sweated 10mm tube inside old 1/2" (beautiful job!) only to find out soldered connections not allowed in LPG system.
So does anyone know of any OLD 1/2" compression fittings available anywhere ?
ANY suggestions.
Thankyou Steve

No advice will be given on this forum regarding gas work...especially LPG.

Get a gas-safe installer qualified in LPG and boats.

LPG is considerably more dangerous than natural gas.
I wonder if you could be exempt from the Gas Regulations if you sailed the boat far enough offshore and no longer be covered by UK rules, or is it always to do with where the boat is registered?
