Propane tank with regulator

We recently had a line installed from our large propane tank that supplies the house to our deck where we have our BABY Q. The plumber said there was an attachment we needed to add since the large tank already has a regulator on it. Can anyone tell me what that part would be? I tried the Webber parts online service but it is down for service.

    We used to use a regular small propane gas tank such as those found in Home Depot and the like. We were told we need a new line that does not have a regulator.

    Does the line now hook up to the Baby Q? Really not much to it: Big tank -> Regulator -> Line -> left-handed connection to grill.

You're fine using a regulator, just keeps the propane 'regulated' : ) Since you already have it, I'd try the one you have. I'd figure your regulator for the big tank is set for low pressure, really may be fine by itself, but the additional one at the Webber end won't hurt anything. This is a YMMV, try cheapest way first using what you have, not much of a problem to change to the other one if it doesn't work.

I hooked a thermador cooktop to a BBQ propane tank. The flames are large for a second and make a puff sound and the shrink to nothing. All 5 burners do the same.

It does sound like a faulty regulator, propane operates at 2.75kpa and if the existing regulator is for natural gas it is only 1.1kpa.
If you are operating off a bulk tank the regulator on the tank may be high pressure then the secondary regulator on the appliance may be to bring it down further. See if you can get a manometer and check it all out before doing any regulator removing.

I have a 40000 btu all pro and it lights but the line freezes up and it starts throwing a large flame out, what is going on ?

Sounds like the regulator is bad or the tank is overfilled. The liquid propane is supposed to vaporize under high pressure within the tank, and the regulator lowers the pressure to feed the burner. It seems that your regulator is getting liquid and it is vaporizing at low pressure in the regulator. When the liquid vaporizes at low pressure it gets super cold.

Hooked up proane tank used once then no flame on grill. There is propane in the tank but no propane flows out of it either when hooked up to the grill or when opening the valve directly on the tank. This...

The valve on the tank has an internal valve that will not allow you to release propane into the atmosphere. It must be connected to a regulator line in order to open.
It sounds like your regulator has failed. Remove the regulator assembly, inspect it carefully for blockage or hose kinks. If there none, try replacing the regulator assembly.

How do I connect my propane gas grill up to the 1/2 inch gas connection that goes to my large propane tank that is also used for the gas firplace. The large tank does have a regulator. This would elimate...

Thomas, unless you have flaring tools, 1/2" flexible copper refrigerant type piping, the necessary flared couplings, unions, inline shutoff valve, etc., as well as an extensive knowledge of pipe fitting and installation of gas appliances, I don't recommend you under taking this as a DIY project. There are just to many things that can go wrong and is best left to the pros. I am sure your propane provider can do it for you. After all, you'll be using more propane and they like that. With that said, it can not be directly hard piped to the grill. Either you or the gas company can provide a 12' long, rubber, quick disconnect gas hose, that will go from the ON/OFF gas line valve to the grill. As that is a national code requirement.

Good luck and Happy Grilling.

There are several possible things that could cause this problem. Fiirst you said you are not low on propane so the first thing I would want to know is your primary heat source or water heater also propane? If so and they are upstream of your fire place when they cycle they may be shorting your fuel supply. Second are you on a one or two regulator system? If you are on a single regulator you may be trying to draw more fuel than supply line can deliver.Either way the first thing I would do is contact your propane supplier and have them do a pressure check on your regulators. Most suppliers will due this free or at a minimal charge,but checks or adjustments should only be done by trained personnel. Where I live we have two stage system and propane supplier takes care of tank regulator free and house regulator at our expense. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Hooking up a pool heater to propane.

A pressure regulator and pipe or hose. Whoever is selling you the tank/propane should be able to help you size everything based on the tank hook-up and tank pressure. The heater nameplate will tell you the proper inlet gas pressure that the regulator will need to reduce the tank pressure to.

The line & valve on my grill's propane tank freeze up

I suggest cleaning and drying out the line as it sounds like there may be water in it.
Liquid propane could be getting into your regulator as well, make sure your propane tank is upright with the output on the top.
Make sure your regulator vent hole is clean and is facing down toward the ground.
If you are in a very cold or humid climate, you may also want to look into a regulator cover.
