Are all BBQ regulators the same?
In this regard, are gas grill regulators interchangeable?
Either will work and they are interchangeable. If you have more than three burners or a new standard regulator still doesn't seem to allow enough gas to your grill, you may need a high-flow regulator. These regulators let out up to 90,000 BTUs of gas.
Subsequently, question is, do I need a regulator for my propane grill? Nothing can be operated without a regulator except a weed burner in which the needle valve serves as a regulator. If and only IF you connect to the house propane system you will have to remove the regulator from the grill. That is designed to lower tank pressure to 11″ water column or about 6–8 ounces per square inch.
Furthermore, are all gas regulators the same?
Although the purpose of LPG regulators is the same, different applications may require different types of regulators. The gas demand of the appliances determines what type of regulator is installed. Commercial sized regulators are completely different and frequently comprised of two separate units.
How long do gas grill regulators last?
It's recommended that you replace your regulator every 15 years. This is because regulators, like any grill part, are prone to wear and tear. Some manufacturers recommend replacement every 20+ years or so, but you will need to double check with your manufacturer to see if this is the case.
