Do I have the Correct Propane Hose???

Hello:

It seems to be a lot of different propane hoses on the market and before I install this propane hose I want to check here and get peoples opinions if there are any safety issues. The hose is a SIEVERT 1525IS Gas Hose,25 ft., Liquid Propane G0258329. Hose inside dia 1/4, outside dia , max pressure 300PSI. The propane tank will have a tee, shut off ball valve, 20 PSI regulator, quick connect and then the hose installed and run to the bbque with its own regulator. Let me know if this is good to go.

Thanks

It depends on what you are wanting to do, but a hose that long with a 1/4 inch diameter volume at 20 psi will hold a good bit of propane. Likely enough to run a BBQ grill for multiple minutes even after the tank valve is shut off.

It is a 300 PSI propane gas or liquid hose.
Installed on downstream side of 20 psi propane regulator so OK on pressure

I already thought of that. Once I get it up and going I would need to time it to see how long it actually takes for the propane to run out. Hopefully I don't snooze off.

Isaac, sounds like a smaller dia hose and a 15 PSI regulator might be better?

Part of the question is also what size grill are you trying to run, how many BTU's?

I will be using a Weber q2000. For this set-up.

I went ahead and did the mod. I researched that most common propane hoses are 3/8", so I guess the hose I mention on post #1 was good to go. When the tank valve is shut off the BBQ (Q220) only runs for less than 30 second. BTW, the total length of the hose is 30". At the same time I did this mod, I refinished the tank and changed the regulator and service hose too. See pix.

The only issue I have now is, I bought a use Q220 and the flame is low. Only gets to 340 degrees. Maybe I need to check for blockage and/or hook up a 20 lbs propane tank directly to the BBQ and see if the flame is the same.

Maybe the hose is actually too small?

That did cross my mind. I think I will connect the small bottle directly to the Weber and see. Thx

Your running the fuel through two regulators, that may be the problem.

Yes, you should only have 1 regulator in the line to the grill. Assuming the red object in photo 1 is a regulator, the regulator at the grill should be removed.

Remove one of the regulators. You only need one.

Stop,, you're killing me,, you only need this, the grill (or any other device) has it's own regulator. The kit is called "Extend a stay". it lets you either run a device off your main tank, or use a 30 pound bottle to supplement your main tank. Nice propane tank,, I want that.

Regulator can be at either end .... but only one. Depends on how much pressure you want on your grill hose.
