Here it is required by code in Illinois, regardless what the setup.

Well, anti wingnut we can agree to dis agree and I'm giving up on 'feeding the troll' this is a forum and we can have the good taste to play fair (or not) in this electronic sandbox, and keep this civil, polite and friendly.
I welcome insights and opinions but when encountering members calling one another out, such derision are akin to comparing phallus sizes and just about as mature. All the best to you and yours, friend.

Thanks Greg, when Darrel comes out from the Gas Co. I'll mention it. He seems like an affable guy I was looking at the neighbors homes and for the most part it looks as though their meters are in the rear of the house as well. There are two others mounted on the side as the new location of ours is but they're closer to earth it seems.

Have the 1st plumber coming out to make a bid for installing the feed line to the furnace. Got an early snow over here and with the cold thunderstorms it looks as though I'll have to get the heat going after all.
Glad I got the water pipes under the house insulated last week.
