Can I have a gas supply for my hob/stove in the kitchen?
Yes a 9kg cylinder in a cupboard either next to the hob or another cupboard usable. But not underneath the hob. The cupboard must be vented for dispensation of any gas that might leak from the cylinder.
If I have my gas supply outside my house can it be anywhere?
Yes although the following conditions apply....
Minimum of 1 meter from a door or window
2 meter from an open drain (Does not include storm-water drains)
5 meter from an electrical source i.e. air-conditioning unit, pool pump, plug point, mains switchboard (DB Board)
5 meter away with a built double brick firewall from a thatch roof.
Do I need 1 or 2 gas cylinders?
Depends on the system and installed components/appliances. One 9kg/19kg is fine for a gas stove or hob
Two 48kg cylinders are preferable for a Gas water heater(geyser) or fireplace as it may not work optimally and you don’t want to run out of gas as you are in the middle of a shower more so in the middle of winter!
Do i need a certificate for my gas installation even if its just a small installation?
Yes you need a gas certificate for any stationery or built in gas appliance that's connected to a gas system that is either a connection inside the cupboard or a system outside with pipes running about to supply gas.
Please note that gas roll about heaters or a patio heater or patio roll about braai, any appliance that is not stationery does not need a gas certificate.
