British Gas, now Transco installed the plastic casing. around teh meter when they replaced the iron gas pipe. The casing is now broken. They wont remove teh meter so I can replace the backing plate. If I get a brand new backing plate as part of my purchase, why should I use a discoloured one and throw the new one in the bin?

So if I take the casing off and the meter damages because of the rain what do they do to me?

Or should I be a pain in the rear and get them to remove the meter and the gas pipe from my garden. And then pay to have a new meter pipe and box installed?

They get these in bulk and costs them peanuts, can't they just send one in the post?

typical British gas... I had similar issues as they tend to take every shortcut possible.... its very frustrating. Keep hassling and i'm sure they will send you one if you keep being annoying ! :)

If its not a smart meter tell them you want one and then get them to fit the new case at the same time
