James:


You would need to check the manufacturing specs for the flex line to determine acceptability in tghis application. The line appears to be excessively flexed.

Is there an isolation valve at the unit?

The clamp in the one photo appears to be fior the damper to prevent closure as this appears to be a vented Gas Log set.

The material in the bottom is Vermiculite and Rock Wool. It is a necessary component with some manufacturers of gas burners.

Joseph, thanks…


There was a cut off valve near the unit with t-handle.
what do you think about the flex gas line running along the bottom of the log unit. Isnt it to close?

The Vermiculite and Rock Wool also add to the ambiance of the unit, adding some “glow”. I would also check the manufactures specs.

I think it stinks, but this is common.


That clamp in the first picture belongs on the damper so it can't be fully closed.
