    Pleased to report no more gas smells. Not so pleased the nice new meter bracket fitted by Mr Gas is floating 6 inches from the wall. So my questions - is this a safety fail and should I get the 0800111999 guys back?

    The bracket does not have to be secured.

    Is it sat on a surface - or literally floating?

    Up to the outlet is the responsibility if certain things are in place. Namely a PEMS contract. The shipper own the meter and gov not grid. Also depends on type of meter...smart,ETM,E6 or others in a semi sub. None of these can be changed therefore a cap at the inlet is necessary

    Floating, not on a surface. Pic in post 19 shows pipework sits behind bracket .

    I was thinking the same, we never have soldered gas joints in the states.

    It should either sit on a base, or be secured to wall

    Responded to this last week via phone, but hasnt appeared.

    I stand corrected, Jef. I had forgotten about PEMs. However, when I was with NG, we would have repaired leaks, but did not "work" on the meter itself, so no resetting etc if neccessary.
