I'd like to install some propane-gas based logs in my fireplace to use as an auxiliary heat source this winter. Mainly for when the power goes out (I have electric heat pump), or for very cold morning while eating breakfast.
As such, I don't want or need a massive buried tank for propane at my house. I considered a 100lb tank however, 1) the local gas companies won't fill these at the house, and 2) as I understand it, these tanks must be transported vertically, which will be very difficult for me (even though I have a pickup).
I would like to use 40lb tanks instead or even the bbq size 20lb tanks (keeping extras on hand), but am confused on what parts I need to hook the gas logs up. Assuming I come out of a 1/2" black pipe from the outside wall of the chimney, I believe I need a twin regulator with a pigtail connector like this one, but I'm not 100% it's correct. Can anyone verify this will work with what I am trying to do?
