Hi Just wondering whether it's okay to have a capped gas pipe in the fireplace with a wood burning stove? A gas safe engineer has capped the gas pipe and its sticking out approx 20mm above the hearth. It will be very close to where the stove is planned to be (a few inches at most), although the stove will obviously be on legs. I am dubious, but the gas safe engineer was adamant that it was fine. The pipe was capped using solder, and the engineer said the heat would have to be very intense over a period of time in order to effect the seal/solder, and that wouldn't happen just from the stove heat. I'm waiting to hear back from the HETAS engineer who will be fitting the stove.
