add a new gas line to the gas range?

hi there:

I am thinking to add a new gas line from the meter to the kitchen and possible leave a outlet for the gas bbq.

how much doe it cost roughly to put it in in BC? Victoria. One guy quoted me 1000 to start with...

I'm not sure about Victoria, but in Toronto, it's about $250 to 300 for 10 feet of 1/2" pipe, then $10 to $20 per each additional foot.

How long is your run?

Do they even use black pipe anymore? I thought everyone switched to Gastite.

Five years ago we had a 20' gas line run for a new stove and it was about $750. But this is Toronto where prices for any reno work are always higher.

Flex pipe(csst) isn't to be used for going through walls or floors. Not according to code anyhow. Black pipe is much safer against puctures. I wouldn't use it for anything other than exposed connections that can be easily inspected.

Gastite is faster to use. I just re-routed my bbq gas line from the side of my house. I used black pipe. I like using black pipe outside. I threaded pipe for 35 years so for me it was easier, plus I'm retired so I've got nothing better to do. :lol:

Is this for the small flex hose at the end, or the entire length? Ive had several stoves installed with (copper) flex pipe no issues.

CSST (corrugated stainless steel tubing) is classified as tubing not hose!!
And it's not to be confused with the gas flex connecting the appliance.

You rly might want to rethink giving gas advice to people when you have no idea what you are talking about...
