Q:What size of natural gas line is needed to fuel the generator?
by|Jun 1, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  We recommending contacting your gas provider, or a licensed plumber, and they will be able to size the gas line for you. Gas pipe size will depend on length of run from the source and how many elbows and T’s there are. Gas line size on our units can range from ¾” to 1 ¼” or greater, depending on the unit and how far from the gas source. Units running on natural gas need 3.5” to 7” of water column of pressure, and units running on propane will need 10” to 12” of water column of pressure.

        A:  The smallest propane tank we recommend for use with our automatic standby generators is a 250-gallon tank.

          Great install
          The product is top notch and the install was excellent. Hooley electric did an outstanding job and answered all questions as well as going over all aspects of the unit. Helped with the wifi hookup and product registration.

              Unit arrived as advertised and easy to read instructions. As a 68 year old homeowner I was able to set, mount and connect without any issues. Very pleased with the Transfer switch to connect to the meter leads (pulled meter of course), all other wiring connections are clearly marked. The hardest problem is programming the Wi-Fi with required several calls to the help desk for us old dumb people. The help desk personnel were very nice and put up with our stupidity. Needed our Grandchildren, never around when you need them.

              Great Features
              I purchased a 16kw Natural Gas generator. My electrician made the final connections yesterday. The generator started right up and ran without any issues. I am in hopes that I will never have to use the generator, but if I do, I am confident that I purchased the right generator brand for the job. It looks great sitting next to the back side of my deck. See video showing initial running of the Generac 16kw.

              The only whole house Generator I’d own!
              This is my 2nd Generac whole house generator which I installed myself. It’s very quite even under full load. The directions are also easy to follow and understand. The installation took about 8 hours including pouring the pad for the unit to sit on and the gas piping.

              This produce has many great features that I like.
              We have not had a power outage yet, so I can not really say to much about the function of the unit.

              Great generator
              From the time we talked to our salesman Bryan, to when it was delivered and installed, it was a very good experience. Everyone was very professional and polite. It’s only been a short time that I’ve had it. So it hasn’t needed to turn on yet. It’s our insurance that we never loose power. Peace of mind. I’ve recommended it to many people.

              I was able to install it myself
              I found the manuals simple to understand and follow. The costs for the new gas meter, plumbing supplies, cable, concrete pad, and battery were more than I anticipated. I now understand the prices the installers charge. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
