    2" meter? Serving your house??

    Is this a utility meter? Usually they are owned by the utility company. If so, call them and have someone service it. I haven't heard my meter making noises but that's not to say some designs don't.

    When my meter was temporarily removed to fit new shut off valves it did make a tick ticking noise for a few weeks after it was put back.

    But the noise has since gone.

    meter

    Never heard of the orientation of a meter making a difference, but have heard MANY meter, including my own, which make the "clicking/thumping" sound when high flows are going through them.
