Congratulations, Jeff!

Question #2 was the tricky question. Flanges are usually not allowed behind wall cover but you can install a gas flange if you get permission from the local authority.

I thought that would throw off most people but Jeffrey got it.

Yeah, he guest it.
Just kidding, congratulations Jeff!

(Psst… Hey Marcel… the key is to know how your enemy thinks!) :wink:

Btw… in America, it’s spelled “guessed”. :mrgreen:

Congrats Jeff!!

That would have gotten me - Thanks for splainin

I actually ran into that scenario many moons ago. Not only did the AHJ approve the location, he also specified a certain type of flange for it to happen, (which for the life of me I can’t remember what the design was). It was the one and only time I’ve run into that, but odd enough for me to remember the event.


In English also… :wink:

He would have recommended a “heavy duty” flange.
