Cowboy Plumbing

Rather than change the gas pipe to the hob, why not cut off the hob fitting to suit your pipe? 

When you buy a hob, it generally comes with a formed fitting that the plumber can connect onto with standard fittings. 

This pipe had been cut back, and a compression fitting had been over-tightened onto it. The problem was they cut off the standard 15mm connection, which meant the hob was unsafe to use. 

The customer was lucky there wasn’t a gas leak, and we had spotted the potential danger. 

A new part wasn’t available to buy so a new hob was bought and then fitted by us the next day.
