Repairs to Gas Meter

If you receive this letter from South Jersey Gas or Precision Pipeline Solutions, it’s a legitimate request to update the gas meter.

Based on the “second notice” language on our letter, I obviously dismissed it as well.

The techs need to turn off the gas while they elevate the meter and add new pipes.  Then the pilots inside are re-lit and checked (so access inside the house is necessary).

For many homes, this includes checking the gas stove, heater, dryer, hot water heater, and fireplace.

According to the tech who worked at our home, if owners don’t respond and make appointments,┬áPipeline Solutions was just granted approval to turn off the gas to complete the work, and then lock the meter until interior access is provided.

This will off course be a huge inconvenience for the next occupant (owner or tenant) because major appliances won’t function until the gas company returns!

If you have gas service at your Avalon or Stone Harbor property , it’s worthwhile to call the gas company to confirm this update.
