Shadow Catcher wrote:Here is the justification for a single vs two stage regulator.
Single stage and two stage gas regulators have different droop characteristics (Droop is the difference in delivery pressure between zero flow conditions and the gas regulator's maximum flow capacity) and respond differently to changing supply pressure. The single stage regulator shows little droop with varying flow rates, but a relatively large supply pressure effect. Conversely, the two stage regulator shows a steeper slope in droop but only small supply pressure effects.
Two stage is I understand required for RV's.
Since I have a couple of high flow usages, water heater and grill and wanted not much fluctuation I went with two stage.
