The gas stove connector that connect the natural gas and the stove is a rubber gas hose. There are two common types of natural gas hoses on the market. They are natural gas rubber hose and metal gas hose. Then you may have questions that what the difference between them? And which one is better? Then let me introduce you these 2 gas hoses.

Natural gas rubber hose

Many local laws have clear regulations that forbid using rubber hoses as gas pipe. Because rubber hose will age due to high temperature if they are close to the furnace. Besides, it will cause damage to the gas supply if you press or fold the hose. In addition, the interface of the gas hose must be firmly clamped with a tube clamp. Otherwise it will be easy to loosen, fall off, and leak.

The price of the rubber hose is cheaper. But its service life is not long. In general, you have to replace every 18 months.

Stainless steel hose

This type of hose is the gas pipeline that the country strongly recommend. Metal hose consists of three parts, namely a joint, a mesh sleeve and a bellow. The main part of the bellow is stainless steel. Thus it is safer to use. Besides, the pitch of the stainless steel hose is flexible. Thus there will not be block.

Moreover, the stainless steel hose is not only light in weight, but also very flexible. Besides, it performs very well in corrosion and high temp resistance. Thus you don’t have to worry about the problem that stove may burn it. What’s more, stainless steel flex hose is extremely strong. Thus it will not get the damage from sharp things. In another hand, it can avoid the mice biting. As a result, it has a long service life which could be 6-8 years. But the price is relatively high, which can be 4 times of rubber gas hose.
