I'm attempting to replace the log lighter pipe and I'm unsure of which way to turn the existing pipe to loosen it from the gas supply line that it connects to at the side of the firebox. Please advise.
You should turn the pipe to the left or counter-clockwise, but only after after the manual shut off valve has been turned to the off position. If you are unsure about this, only a licensed plumber or gas fitter should remove or install any gas fittings that are currently in place.
I hit a gas connection (pictured) with a lawnmower. I used a hacksaw to cut through the horizontal pipe and now am left with 2 vertical 1" pipes. Is there a type of flexible connection that I can use to make a repair? The pipe runs under my patio and through a stone wall to the actual fire-pit, so there is no easy way to get to the burner and work backwards.
The use of flexible gas connections may not be allowed in your municipality and you should contact a local plumber or gas fitter to determine what may be used outdoors, as National Fuel Gas Code is only the standard when adopted locally.
I'd like to connect the two pipes seen in the first picture. They look to be 1/2 pipes with 3/8 90 degree fittings on them. The fittings will not come off. What do you have that will allow me to connect 3/8 male to 3/8 male in a fireplace that's used to burn wood. The gas is just used to start the fire. As you can see from the second picture, the prior owner connected them with a short line which looks like it was aluminum. It seems to have melted, which I discovered when I cleaned out all of the soot in the fireplace.
