 What is this fitting and where can I buy a new one?
Author: ultimoblaze (OH)






I have 3 meters on my house serving three separate apartments. The fitting in the first picture is what I need. The other pictures are the location where the meter goes I'm installing and the other is an installed meter adjacent to it. The S-swivel fitting that was in the fitting broke off and left a piece of pipe in the threads and I can't get it out. I can't find this fitting at any hardware store or online and I don't know what it would be called.


Thanks,

It is a "gas meter setting fitting" and NO ONE will have one other than your gas utility company, and they might not be too happy about you working on that part of the system anyway.

Well the gas in this house was still plumbed for lighting. There were 1-1/2" lines running to just above the meter and 3 back to back reducing elbows going down into the "setting fitting". When I removed the old 1-1/2" lines there was no support for the meter other than the supply side connection so I removed it. Then while trying to remove the street elbows, I broke off the swivel fitting in the setting fitting. Not thinking I'd have such a difficult time finding a new one, I threw it out.

As for the meter bar, that appears to be a 1 piece construction and I don't think I'd be able to install that to the existing valved setting fitting that is already there. If I provided adequate support on the outlet side of the gas meter, could I get away with not having a meter bar? I don't see any setting fittings for sale on the internet.


Thanks,
