What pressure of gas supply is needed for this unit?
By eFireplaceStore on August 18, 2014
Answer:This unit requires input pressure between 10 and 13 inches of water column. More often than not, proper pressure can be achieved by tying into the existing line, but the volume of gas is insufficient when both appliances are burning. I recommend having a licensed plumber verify if the supply line is large enough. Both length of the line and diameter play parts in proper appliance operation.
