Gas Work Question

Am i allowed to disconnect a gas hob myself

9 Answers

Best Answer

Only a Gas Safe registered engineer is legally allowed to disconnect a hob.A ( tightness test )would be carried out once the gas hob has been disconnected and the pipework capped.Any open ends on gas pipework is classed as ( immediately dangerous )My advice,don`t do it unless you`re a gas safe engineer

NO< for your own safety and that of others and other properties, please have Gas Safe workmen to do job, British Gas , with Gas you never no if theres a underlying problem, so be safe and let a professional deal with it. That way you can come back and tell us how it went and what you learnt.
