First of all the answer is NO unless you are COMPETENT in gas-work as per the Boat Safety Scheme. If you are you are then faced with the BSS requirements for the minimum of connectors in a pipe run so whatever you do you will be faced with a possible BSS failure on an unnecessary connector. Personally I would photograph the situation as it is now so you have a record to show the BSS examiner if he queries the connector. I would then minimise the chances of a leak by changing the T for a straight connector. If you take the T piece to a decent chandlers or Calor Gas Centre you should find a straight connector is available with the same thread as your T so it will probably just slip into place if you free a couple of pipe clamps. Again I must warn about the need for competence and needing to ask must put a question mark over it. Tony Brooks
