Last January the bypass regulator for the bedroom’s heater propane crapped out – after less than 3 months of service. Of course I had a Plan B which got me through the rest of the winter. But I’ve gotta tell you that it’s nice to have a regulator that, when a propane bottle goes empty, just automatically switches to another bottle. That is one of man’s great accomplishments, almost equal to that of the humble thermostat.
So in gearing up for this year’s winter preps, I really needed to get another bypass regulator. Of course nobody sells them locally, that would be convenient. I had to send away for one, which means it arrived at the Lair weeks later.
And yes, I’ve checked it for leaks. 😉
