Gas meter clearances

What is the UPC clearance requirement for gas meters?


Hi. Calvin;

NFPA 54 5.7 states that gas meters shall be located readily accessible for examination, reading, replacement, or necessary maintenance.

Also, gas meters shall be located at least 3 feet from sources of ignition.

Not sure what other codes would apply to this, but I would check with your local gas Company regulations for this one.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Marcel. I found the 3 ft. requirement as well.
When in doubt…report it right?
