Apologies for the watermarks, but we noticed people are stealing our pictures for their websites.
2x48 Kg installation, Client wanted 2 fireplaces on their landing. Pipe was run inside the wall during construction. A 2 x 48kg mesh cage and a 4kg regulator was installed. 2 x Syam 1000 drop in fireplaces were supplied by Syam direct. For more on Syam products visit their website. Got Gas only recommends Syam and Chad-o-Glo fireplaces.
As can be seen from the picture, 2 x 48kg cylinders were installed with a cage, 3 fireplaces that were previously wood burners were converted to gas, and 1 Hob was installed. Pipe ran surface under the eves. Droppers were run for every appliance point. 1 x 24kg high pressure regulator was installed with 4 2nd stage regulators, 1 at each appliance. Shut-off valves were installed wherever the pipe entered the house. 1 main shut-off safety valve was installed just outside the cage.
Client requested 2 x 19kg (although technically for a fireplace 48kgs are better, Client insisted on 19kgs, not sure why) to run a fireplace. This was a basic installation with the gas botttles and cage being directly outside the fireplace point. Standard 3kg changeover regulator was installed.
Here is a 2+2 installation to run a gas generator. The generator was a Generac 8kva Gas type. 1 x 12kg regulator was installed and the genset was 5m away. Client had regular outages and was loosing business. (client had a home business). The Generator can be obtained from Bundu Power.
9kg in cupboard installation for a hob. Client had the Cadac 9kg bottle already.
Steyn City actually has a newtwork setup (Where gas is metered to each household), however at the time of this installation the network was not online. We installed 4 x Rinnai 26l Gas Water Heaters in this particular house, as well as 1 stove, fireplace and braai. The bottle arrangement you see n the picture was kept in place after the netwrok came online as a backup. a main line 50mm HDPE pipe was run right around the house with branch lines off at various points to feed the applainces. A large diameter pipe was used due to the low pressuse nature of metered networks and long distance.
