    gas meter identification

    Does anyone have a cheat sheet for how to know the capacities of different gas meters. Our utility wants us to call them on every job and then wait 2 days for a callback to find out if the meter can handle the load we have. This is mainly for when we're adding generators or on demand water heaters. I realize there still could be issues with the supply line, but I would just like to be able to tell them for sure if there gas meter is too small or not, on the initial visit.

    Thanks,

    Probably only the gas co can say for shure lots of variables. Even then the customer side of the plumbing may not be up to it.
    Never argue with a crazy man.

    whats the main pressure?

    whats the metered pressure, whats the service reg model#, body size and orifice?

    its not that simple. too bad you gas co doesnt respond faster. but they are the best to determine capacity
    my boss thinks its possible to repeal the laws of physics
