We are building a house and installed our own electrical. We were now told that our meter base is incorrect. It is a ring less style and the power company requires a ring style. I thought it was because of the security and locking issues. But, they say it is due to corrosion that can happen within the meter base, making removal of the meter difficult. We do not want to have to just "waste" this purchase, these and the parts to go with it are NOT cheap. Is there any way to create a sealed ring area over it? Has anyone faced this and succeeded?
