Frequent questions and answers

You might need to cap off a gas supply for many reasons.

Here are some of the most common I come across:

  • Replacing a gas hob for an electric hob
  • Removing a gas fire
  • Removing a gas pipe that’s in the way

Brass and copper are the materials usually used to cap off a gas pipe.

A brass compression blank nut can be used if it is going to be accessible, however, it must be a copper blank sealed with solder or a press fit gun if it’s not going to be left accessible.

No, capping off a gas supply is definitely not a DIY task. You have to be competent to work on gas, and every time you cap a gas supply off you have to do a tightness test before and after to make sure you haven’t left a gas leak.
