    I purchased a 2nd hand kitchen from Europe and would like the gas hob connected so it is UK compliant. My Plumber had a look and doesn't know where to start. Is there a product available which would make the connection UK compliant. I've attached a picture of the connection.

    Any help please !!!

    You would need to be sure it’s suitable for uk natural gas first

    Hi Lee,

    A few things to consider:
    The main thing you will need is manufacturers instructions to fit a 2nd hand domestic gas appliance in the UK.


    is it suitable for natural gas?
    Is there a better photo than just a birds eye view?
    Is there a make and model?

    I believe a 1/2" male fitting is hiding in the body of the hob, remove the clip and it should slide down.

    Was it a GasSAFE plumber that looked or a Kitchen fitter?
    As above the male fitting is hiding, trapped by the hob fixing bracket.

    Tell your gas fitter that the data plate will need checking.
    Depending where it was suitable for it may have the wrong injectors. Mainland Europe runs different pressures and calorific values to us.

    If you've just spent 16k on a kitchen bite the bullet and buy a hob made for the uk.

    It's not worth risking it.
