RE: Natural Gas Plumbing Question (Follow-Up #6)

So Starplex,

How did all this conclude? Did you get the upgraded meter? Which one? did you have any problems with the heater?

I have a 175 cu.ft./hr rated gas meter and a 400,000 Btu/hr pool heater. The gas company tech came out and said I needed a "Pool Heater Set Up". Which would be your option 1. The weird thing is that I have only recently have had trouble with the heater. It has turned on before and all of a sudden I am having problems. I am having a pool heater tech come out (for $100!) to tell me if there is anything wrong with my heater. But with more and more research I do I am figuring that I need a bigger meter...

Any in sight? I am hesitant to do the meter upgrade because its an older house (1962) and if you pressure test the gas line I am afraid it might bust a leak somewhere.

Any advice?
