My gas line can't be pressurized since there is a pressure regulator installed after the gas shutoff valve.
My solution was to install an additional shutoff on the outlet side of the meter, circumventing the pressure regulator.
Was there a better way to do this?
For the pressure test, should I have removed and capped the regulator, leaving everything else as is?
3/4/2020 Gas man came to the property and said my setup was perfect since everything after the meter is my property. He stated that a pressure test is not supposed to include the gas company's equipment (the pressure regulator), and that the regulator was working fine. He performed his own test by disconnecting and hooking up a meter in between my line and the meter, and there was no pressure loss.
