We had a installation for natural gas babecue.the customer suggested that if we could branch the pipe from outside, just downstream of the gas meter. because he didn't want us to make a hole through the wall. My boss said "no, we can't do that because the branch is too close to the meter". I live in Mississauga, Ontario.I am new in this trade, but I have a gas code book and couldn't find anything like that in the book. Could anybody give the answer, I would appreciate that.
