Those houses look older. I’m curious to know how many incidents like that have happened over the years. eusa_think.gif

David,


Yes there is a reference but it is the International Fuel Gas Code that covers the clearance and protection requirements. Unfortunately I do not have a copy. Have been trying to find a free online version or at least a reference to it. But yes they are to be protected by bollards or other methods.

One place you can try is search the WEB site for the major, local gas supplier for Maple Heights. Many have publications regarding proper meter locations.

Sorry I could not help but if anyone has a URL for the IFGC let us know.

I reported a gas meter on a commercial building one time as being dangerous due to possible car impact. They said it had an automatic shutoff valve and it was ok.


Then a week later they had it protected.
I suspect they did some research and found that there is no automatic shutoff valve even on commercial meters. It looked just like a residential meter to me.

Do you have section #2. Section 3 refers to #2 for the meter protection information.

Thanks

David V,

I get a kick out of your "Click here" ...
It's like the easy "button" for "Office Depot"..
Press and your answer shall be visible.

I would like to implement a "pull my finger" graphic but figured that would not be a good idea..

Patrick,


Why not order a "Pull my finger" keychain, instead.

Would it not be prudent to just ask the AHJ, and/or Gas Company for their own regulations to maintenance and/or protective measures if required ?
