Natural Gas Meter Installation Requirements
For your natural gas meter installation, some very specific requirements need to be met. Depending on your local jurisdiction, there may be additional factors that can impact this process. It is important to speak with a local professional to ensure that any installation doesn’t violate any building codes. Some of the most common requirements include:
- A natural gas meter installation must be at least 3’ from fresh air intakes and openings
- Should be placed 3’ from the property line
- May not be closer than 3’ to windows, water spigots and ignition sources
- Must be a considerable distance from traffic.
- All regulators and relive valves should be in an area away from building openings and allow gas to freely escape.
- Must be 10’ from septic tanks and wells
