Connecting a gas stove to the cylinder in the country in 4 steps

Even in the village, not everyone is ready to give up fossil fuels and use a gas stove in the country for cooking. The problem of lack of gasification is solved by connecting a gas cylinder with a propane-butane mixture. To do this safely and efficiently, I will tell you how to properly connect the gas cylinder at the cottage.

Installation Features

As you know, gas should be handled with extreme caution due to its explosiveness, because even a small leak or poor-quality connection can lead to extremely sad consequences.

Connection of bottled gas to the stove should not occur in the absence of one of the following elements:

Plate, designed for the use of liquefied gas (as a rule, when connecting equipment, designed for pressure from a centralized network, burners burn badly with a characteristic yellowish flame color).

In this case, suitable as a special stove for giving a balloon, and replacing the old tile nozzles with special ones for liquefied gas.

Gearbox. This unit is needed to equalize the gas pressure while gradually reducing the amount of mixture in the cylinder.

Gas hose flexible rubber or semi-flexible bellows hose. According to the norms of the S & P, the cylinder is installed no closer than 1 m relative to a stove or heating devices.

At the same time the hose should be located freely, without tension. Therefore, it will need to buy about a meter more than is required.

In case of using bellows hoses - threaded adapters.

When purchasing a hose to connect the gas stove to the cylinder, you should buy specialized flexible or semi-flexible hoses. Hydraulic or oxygen will not work, because when they are used, the probability of material deformation and gas leaks is much higher.


If you already have everything you need to install, then it's time to tell you how to connect the gas bottle to the stove with your own hands:

table_pic_att15105894378 Step 1. Connection to the stove

The gas stove before connection should already be installed in its place:

  1. We connect the hose to the outlet pipe of the plate, wrapping it around the opening of the pipe and tightening it with a hose clamp.
  2. In the case of threaded adapters, it is sufficient to screw them tightly onto the pipe thread, pre-winding the sealing tape on the thread.
  3. All manipulations are carried out without a cylinder connected, that is, the other end of the hose is not connected to it.

When using gas appliances that receive fuel from a centralized gas supply system, the presence of this element is optional. However, the use of liquefied bottled gas requires a gearbox to equalize the pressure of the effluent:

  1. The reducer is installed using an adapter at the outlet of the gas cylinder; it is necessary to use a sealing fum tape.
  2. At the outlet of the gearbox is installed a gas hose, which is fixed with a clamp.

The location of the container must comply with all regulations and safety requirements. It can be installed both in the room where the stove is located, and in the next or in a specialized box on the street or utility room.

To properly install the cylinder, you must comply with the following conditions:

  1. Do not install equipment in basements, basements, semi-basements, buildings above two floors.
  2. The distance from the heating devices and gas stoves should not be less than 1 m.
  3. A metal cabinet for a balloon, located on the street, must protect it not only from precipitation, sunlight, but also from freezing, therefore it must be warmed and heated.
  4. The cylinder must be located on a clean, dry, level surface. If this is a floor in a special cabinet, then the balloon itself is placed on a pallet or slats, not on the very bottom.
table_pic_att151058944111 Step 4. Leak check

The connection of the cylinder to the stove is checked using a concentrated soap solution:

  1. The solution is prepared from soap and warm water, whipped to a light foam.
  2. Using a sponge or cloth, apply the solution to the joints of the gas hose and all the elements.
  3. If soap bubbles appear - there is a leak. Otherwise, you did everything right.

If we were able to verify the tightness of the connection, set the required pressure on the gearbox and open the cylinder screw to start the gas in the system.

Turn on the burners and evaluate the color and quality of the flame: if it is bluish-green and even, then the pressure is normal.

It is possible to connect the gas stove to several cylinders at the same time using a connecting ramp.

If the flame is bluish-green, the pressure is normal

Useful tips

To make the installation of the pipeline safest, it is useful to know about some useful tips:

table_pic_att151058944713 Frost-resistant gas mixtures - it is possible to fill in the cylinders stored on the street or not heated rooms (however the price and demand during a season will be much higher).

Frost-resistant mixture does not require insulation and evaporates at air temperature down to -40 ° C

table_pic_att151058945414 Adjustable gear - allows you to adjust the gas pressure, and simply indispensable when installing cylinders with a volume of more than 20 liters.
table_pic_att151058945515 Hoses - It is extremely responsible approach to the choice of hoses, preferring specialized flexible and semi-flexible.
table_pic_att151058945616 Hose clamps - should be purchased with a corrosion-resistant coating or in a timely manner to change them at the first signs of corrosion.
table_pic_att151058945717 Flywheel - it is very desirable to install it in the place of connection to the stove. It is needed in case of overlapping fuel supply or due to malfunction of the household unit.
table_pic_att151058945918 Flow meter - allows to assess the degree of fullness of the container and replace it in a timely manner.


Strict observance of all necessary security measures, quality materials and equipment will ensure the gasification of the dacha or at home, even without being connected to the central network. The article describes in detail how to connect the gas hose to the stove, properly install all the necessary equipment and what is required for this.

The video in this article clearly demonstrates the whole process with a detailed description of each step. And if you have questions, ask them in the comments.
