 Where to find gas meter union sealing disc?
Author: ihatedrips (CA)

When I had a gas leak a few months ago, the utility company turned off the main valve feeding the meter and they installed a metal disc on the meter's output union. The representative told me he did this to protect the regulator/meter when my plumber runs a pressure test on the system.

Now I am making some changes to my gas piping and I would like to run a pressure test myself. In order to avoid damaging their equipment (or leaking air through it) I would also like to install a disc to isolate the meter from the house piping. But when I search for "meter sealing disc" online, all of the sellers are in the UK.

Is there a good American source for these caps? Am I searching for the wrong term? Or should I use a different technique to isolate the house piping from the meter?

Your Bing link sends me to a bunch of UK sites. This is the same exact issue I ran into when searching for these.

Is it not possible to source these in America? Something doesn't add up
