Must be a really old plumber is he's still using steel pipe of any kind if it's water lines your talking about.
CPVC, Pex, or copper are the norms for the past 20 years or so.

Steel pipe rusts out from the inside out and at some point will leak, burst, or close up on the inside and reduce flow.

You can NOT pressure test the meter. You already asked that question in HVAC. You need to ask your local authority what they require. A good time to do that would be when you go down to pull the permit.

No one said you couldnt ask questions. Too bad you needed to cop an attitude here and name call like a child. I could have really helped you out. Oh well, good luck with your little project.
