High pressure meter (5lb) and appropriate sized regulators
We were told we needed a high pressure meter (5lb) when installing a pool heater at our home. We have three gas ac/heating units, two gas logs, a cooktop, gas dryer, and a grill also using gas. The problem arose when there was a conflict between the gas company and the plumber. The plumber installed 2 lbs regulators, the gas company refused to turn gas back on unless 5lb regulators were installed. We have been without gas service for two days while they argue it out. The plumber is now trying to charge us for overtime and extra materials and laabor for what appears to be their poor judgement. The plumber claims that the gas company guy told him he would "tamper it down" coming from the meter, so was ok to go ahead and use 2lb regulators. The gas company denies this. Any knowledge of proper procedure in this instance?
