Question corrugated aluminum tubing for gas logs

We have a new natural gas log set which must be installed. It has a 3/8" flare fitting. In the firebox is a 3/4" black iron pipe for the natural gas supply. Is it permissible to use the flexible aluminum tubing like you'd see for a gas stove for this hookup? Thanks.

Hello Dave

YES. It's okay to use the aluminum flex.
Of course you should call the local city and verify the local codes since codes can vary widely.

Just be sure the flex isn't in the direct flames of the burner. You can hide it {cover it} with the insulation fibers, provided with a gas log set, so it isn't all visable to the eye.

Regards & Good Luck
