As far as size of the gas line. There used to be a ceiling

Customer Question

As far as size of the gas line. There used to be a ceiling gas heater in the garage supplied by a 3/4 in supply line off the main supply line that is about an inch and a half. So, I have about 30 feet of 3/4 inch supply line then reduced to 1/2 inch for the last 6 feet. Then, I have a 3/8 inch flexible line to the fireplace that is 30 inches long. Is that a problem? Is that too little gas pressure?

It has nothing to do with gas pressure it's gas volume that's the issue. But based on your description this probably isn't a piping issue. More likely an issue with a dirty burner orifice maybe dirty burners or a problem with the gas control valve
