Antique gas supply line?

Recommended Posts

Since the gas line to the gas igniter is in the firebox, the covering on the line may be an asbestos containing material. I spent some time online looking for information on coverings (asbestos and otherwise) on flexible gas lines and came up empty-handed. If your client wants to know what the covering is, you'll probably want to recommend having the material properly sampled and analyzed for asbestos. However, I don't think I'd spend the time or money. If there's a concern about the line, just have it professionally replaced with a modern, approved line.

Just curious, was the igniter itself secured to the fire grate or can it be knocked around or moved without disassembly of any components?
