6. Can I convert my LP gas patio heater into a natural gas patio heater?
NO. Our propane patio heaters are designed, tested and approved for propane use only. Conversion kits are not available by our corporation. Propane patio heater regulators supply 11” in a column of water and natural gas 7” to 10“. Also, propane gas line tubing is made of copper and must be stainless steel for natural gas.
