What is the LCC27?    Learn More (Click Here)

LCC27 is the acronym for the Leisure Cylinder Connection Type 27.  It is an evolution of the current portable gas appliance                                
Type 21 connection which is commonly referred to as a POL connection. The LCC27 has an EXTERNAL thread for connections to the appliance.

About the current POL valve  

The current Type 21 or POL connection is fitted to 8.5 kg or 3.7 kg LPG leisure cylinders.   It has a handwheel operated valve, an INTERNAL thread for connecting to the appliance, a pressure relief valve, ullage filling and a dip tube 



Will I need to buy a new barbecue or an adaptor?

No, you don’t need an adaptor and they are specifically precluded from use in the relevant Australian standards because they increase the risk of gas leaks.  The LCC27 valve works best when connected to an LCC27 appliance connection but it can also be used with the old POL appliance connection ie it’s backward compatible so you don’t need to buy a new barbeque or other outdoor gas appliances.  On the other hand, the new LCC27 appliance connection can only be used with a new LCC27 valve cylinder.

At the same time, the old POL valve cylinder connected to the old POL appliance connection, which it was made for, remains a safe and reliable option.

HI ,
I ordered a fresh water tank by mistake last Friday week online and phoned on Monday morning hoping to change my mistake. I spoke to George and he sorted it out in a couple of minutes and I received the grey water tank I wanted on Thursday, as I live in Hervey Bay QLD I thought this deserved a little praise and thanks to all involved.
Thanks again,
Glen Knott.

Hi George,

I ordered a replacement shower unit from you on Thursday.

I received it today and installed it immediately.


This is a note to say thanks.

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with someone who can go the extra yard and deal honestly.

You have won me as a customer for all future purchases.
