How do I turn my gas meter on/off?

Natural Gas Supply

Locate your gas meter.  It is usually at the front or side of the property within easy access of the street.  However it may be in a metal box (on the side of your house) or in your front garden under a plastic cover.

To turn off the gas supply to your home, turn the supply valve tap to the horizontal OFF position (at a right angle to the pipe).  To turn on, turn the supply valve tap to the vertical ON position (in line with the pipe).
