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

the supply line to the meter is often not large enough for the requisite flow, hopefully you will not need a larger line, that would cost somewhat more.

gas meter

When I had my spa/pool installed they replaced the gas line not the meter (in my situation that is). Already stated, more significant $$$.

I had my pool/hot tub put in 2 years and the pool company ran a 2" line from the meter to the heater but the gas company had to come out and put in a bigger meter at a cost of $250 i think.

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

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.
