    Why is it that a free standing gas cooker can be connected with a flexible hose (and chain) but a fixed hob must have rigid piping?

    Where did you read that :O read the manufacturers instructions, hoses are permitted in most cases for hobs.

    i don't think we're all singin from the same hyme book here,
    rigid pipe is always preferable, flexi for cleaning purposes,
    hoses are permitted where clearance for temp is achievable under a hob,

    Because cookers are free-standing and hobs are fixed.

    I,m afraid theyre not allowed under hobs,because of the heat transference from beneath the hob could melt the hose.trust me ive done thousands

    Well what can you say,on my last assessment i was asked what is wrong with this installation, it was a hob fitted with a flexible hose,i told him,yes,he said flexis are not allowed ,they have to be rigid fixed??

    I have always been under the impression that there is no fixed regulation on this issue and it depends on what the recommendations in the MI say. Doesn't it depend on whether or not there is an oven below the hob as well in some cases?

    Often on that type of 'set-up' assessment, the MI is left nearby for you to check on install instructiions to assess a faulty install.....maybe that particular hob was rigid instal only? some are....

    The rules are very simple, if the MI's say you can fit it with a flex then you can, PROVIDED you meet the criteria of the MI's. If they say you can't, then you can't. simple really.
