This one wasn’t installed by anyone “qualified” I had told the buyer to check with the Gas Co to avoid any inconvenience.
I should have copied/pasted the other info for reference from SoCal Gas’s website… They indicate 2002?? Either way… for us in the field, it’s difficult to know one way or the other.
I can’t recall a customer ever providing feedback as to whether their install was noted on record from utility, when installed in the discussed manner (utility side)… you?
Effective February 10, 2002, California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) Decision 01-11-068, prohibits installation of a seismic valve on SoCalGas’s facilities. In addition, SoCalGas no longer installs seismic shut-off valves for its customers, and does not allow any customer owned equipment, including excess flow valves, be installed on SoCalGas’s facilities.
“If you have a seismic valve that was installed by SoCalGas or one of its authorized contractors on or before the February 10, 2002 cutoff date, that is located on SoCalGas’s facilities, with proper documentation your installation may be allowed to remain in place. Authorized contractors are those who participated in SoCalGas’s seismic program and were trained by SoCalGas to work on their facilities.”
