I just moved to a new house and it has a gas hookup. I have never dealt with gas before so this is new. I need help just hooking up the hose from the gas line to the dryer. i dont know where to put the gas teflon tape and where not to. it looks fairly simple and i can do most anything so i am sure i can do this. my landlord will not help and the gas company wants $60 for 20 minutes. please help. i have searched the internet for how to books but no luck. Thanks

You can read a page about installing a gas line at the following link but I really suggest you have a professional do it. $60 is not that much to have to pay for piece of mind. JMO. I'm surprised the owner isn't insisting upon it.

$60 is not all that much considering what might happen if you make a mistake and the line leaks. At the least, state plumbing codes usually dictate that gas plumbing must be done by a professional, and home owners insurance usually views things in the same light. Meaning that an unfortunate accident due to a homeowner trying to do something like this might lead to insurance being voided. Check with your local authorities...and the fellow you pay rent to.

I strongly agree with danO and treebeard. Hire a registered plumber to install your gas appliances. You can easily misjudge a flared fitting from a NPT. And if you should attempt to connect the FLEX line to a NPT without a flared fitting, the repurcussions could be serious. Never attempt to do work your not experienced in, especially GAS AND ELECTRIC.

Wow. How amazingly unhelpful! If you answered the question instead of being asses maybe he would do it right.
