Thanks guys, I understand the piping part just fine. I was hoping someone could give me some direction in the connecting fittings from the pipe to the tank and the pipe to the lantern. I have used these in the past, but unfortunately, the person who made them passed away. What i am familiar with did not have any additional regulators, and definitely did not have any hose. The only part other than the pipe and the the connections, was an inline valve near the top of the pipe, allowing you to either quickly cut it off, or to cut it off at the tank, and let it slowly go out (5-10 minutes).
Anybody else have any specifics, I was really hoping to not have to go thru the trial and error of the local hardware experts
