Natural gas pipe pressure settings
Posted by Terrence Schaefer on February 19, 2002 at 18:11:50:
My natural gas meter is connected to my house with galvanized pipe. The problem is that the pressure of the gas inside the house is too high. With the valve open wide, the velocity of the gas at the burner (furnace, water heater, and fireplace) is so high that the burners won't light.
Where and how can I regulate down the gas pressure?
A neighbor said there is a regulator valve on the gas meter itself-is that correct? Where would it be located? Thanks.
