    Gas storage unit advice


    How can you safely facilitate and maintain a gas storage unit on your property? Whether it be beneath or above the ground, what can I do to ensure safety and what steps can be taken to prevent a gas leak or explosion?

    "You are only responsible for the upkeep of your gas supply from the meter into your house, you cannot legally touch the meter itself or any part below the meter this must be done by your gas supplier. The meter can be protected by either building a cabinet/box yourself or by purchasing a commercially made box from most good builders merchants. Boxes for the outside need to be of a lockable type and the lock must be of the kind found on the commercial boxes so it can be accessed by either the meter reader or a gas engineer. Please also be aware that you have to use a registered “Gas Safe” engineer when having any type of work done on your supply."
