Gas connectors need to be inspected regularly, and replaced as needed. Certain kinds of flexible connectors manufactured between 1970 and 1980 may fail over time and need to be replaced.
- Only a qualified professional should check your connector and replace it if needed. Don't try to do this yourself.
- After disconnecting gas appliances, gas connectors should always be removed and the fuel line should be plugged and capped.
- Gas pipes should be properly maintained and never used for unintended uses such as hanging clothes.
