How much does gas plumbing cost?
Gas plumbing services cost an estimated $80 per hour in Canberra. A simple gas fitting job can go lower to $75 an hour and complex repairs and installations cost around $90 per hour.
The cost of gas plumbing depends on several factors. These are the following:
#1. Building size. It will cost more to install pipes on a big house since more piping is needed and will take a longer time to be completed.
#2. Number of storeys. It costs higher if plumbers need to work on higher storeys as it is more difficult to install pipes in a building’s top floors.
#3. Job complexity. Simple gas repairs are at a lower rate, while it costs more to have extensive gas line installations.
#4. Removal of existing pipes. Gas plumbers charge higher if they need to remove old pipes compared to installing new pipes from scratch.
#5. Materials. Pipes of higher quality are more expensive, but they can save you money in the long run as they have a longer lifespan.
How long does it take to install gas plumbing?
Gas plumbing takes 6 to 8 weeks to complete. Here are the factors that affect the time to install gas plumbing:
#1. Size of the installation. It will take longer to install gas plumbing if the size of the property is larger.
#2. Scheduling conflicts. Gas plumbing does not only involve plumbers, this also involves those who construct the house, especially if this is a new house being constructed. If there are delays in the tasks of other workers, this will delay gas plumbing installation.

Can you oversize a gas pipe?
Undersized piping can cause plumbing problems and can incur you additional costs. You can oversize the pipe to avoid this. There is less pressure loss, less clogging, and lower velocity if there is larger piping.
What size pipe do I need for natural gas?
Determining the size pipe you need for natural gas is vital as it ensures that the installed system performs at its best. There are different information needed in order to determine the size:
#1. Gas consumption of each appliance (Mj/h)
#2. Meter pressure
#3. Allowable pressure drop
#4. Proposed layout for the pipe work
||Calculated Length (Main Run Length)
||Gas flow (Mj/h)
||Nom Pipe Size
||50+40 +30 =120
||40+30 = 70
In determining the nom pipe size, you have to find the main run length which is the total length of the pipes to be used. You also have to check the pressure and the pressure drop. You also have to add the amount of gas flow. For Pipe A, the gas flow amounts to 120 Mj/h. Check the column for 8 m and round off 120 mJ/h to the nearest value which is 197 mm. Thus, the nom pipe size is 25 mm.
