New Two Pound Gas Meter is Installed

New two pound gas regulator and meter
The new gas meter was installed yesterday and it is the fist step to getting the house heated.  We still need a roof, doors, hydro and a boiler but hings are getting closer.  The two pound gas meter is a little larger but the gas runs through the same lines as the low pressure natural gas.  Each fixture, stove, fireplace, boiler, etc will require the larger 2 pound regulator to match the 2 pound service.


  1. A gas meter is a device that monitors how much of a fuel, such as propane or natural gas, flows through a specific pipe. Utility companies that provide gas service use meters to determine usage and charge users accordingly.

  2. If you have installed a gas meter in your home or a commercial setup, you need to ensure that it is secured. Securing your meter with a gas meter key will help you protect the appliance from damages, fraud or theft. Meters that are not properly encased or secured are prone to damages as they are exposed to rain and other problems. Continuous water seepage into the meter can damage the appliance over a period of time. This can also affect the functioning of the meter, thus giving you inaccurate meter readings. Therefore, make sure to add a good quality tamper proof locking system when installing gas meters
