What is LPG Gas?
LPG stands for ‘liquified petroleum gas’, it consists mainly of propane and is a by-product of processing other fossil fuels. LPG is a flammable gas making it ideal for heating or cooking. LPG is ideal if you don’t want to connect to the mainline and is easily installed by Brisbane plumbers. LPG gas is stored in gas bottles making it easy to handle and ideal for both household and commercial use.
What are LPG Gas Fittings?
To use LPG Gas, Brisbane plumbers will need to connect the gas bottles to your fixture or appliance, this is done through fittings. Common fittings installed by Brisbane plumbers include piping and LPG gas system connectors, as well as gas valves.
Only licenced Brisbane plumbers and other professional are allowed to handle LPG gas systems. This is because LPG gas is dangerous.
