- Test Gauge: as per B149.1-10, 6.22.2 (b). (A 3" diameter or larger gauge and a 30 psi face is preferred so any loss in pressure can be noticed.)

- To accommodate the meter, the building piping shall be a 18-36 inches to the right of the gas riser and terminate outside of the building.

6. Appliance installation requirements:
- All gas lines must be installed to code and tested.
- Venting must be complete and to code.
- Appliances must be installed to code.
- The permit holder is responsible to fire the appliances.
7. General Safety compliance:

- Safety infractions will be brought to the attention of the Contract holder and/or permit holder.
- As per the Alberta Municipal Safety Codes Act, SANG has the right to refuse gas service if it is deemed unsafe to do.
If SANG is unable to hang the meter due to a safety issue or an incomplete installation, a $60 travel fee will be issued to the contract/account holder.
