Just got a swimming pool/spa put in and was told I need to upgrade my gas meter.There is not enough gas flow to keep heater lit.I just need a little input on this so i'm ejumacated on the subject.Thanks.
Standard gas meter and pressure valve just wont work for a spa...the heater has has a safety that will not let it come on without the needed gas flow...call the gas company and they will set you up...I think I paid $140.00 for the upgrade a few years back...just no way around it
It cost me $300 in Jan '06 & the centerpoint lady blamed it on the pool company not using a big enough line, pool company said it was the meter. Then when the centerpoint guy put in a new meter & didn't tighten it enough so it leaked they blamed the pool guy again. Just a continuous circle of blame but that spa sure felt good on those cold winter nights.
Thanks for the info guys.
The line is the line from the meter to the heater?
$300 for a new meter,$50 for this,$100 for that.Glad I went saltwater.I can fill it with trout and reds and never leave the house.
You guys are sumpin else. Ya' got a $30-40K pool, with heater & gripping 'bout another $400 to get enuff gas to the heater.
I bet ya' just go a new Gizmo reel and super graphite/titanium/magnesium platinum coated rod.
