How to turn on your gas supply

If you ever need to turn your gas supply on or off at the meter – here’s what to do.

Check that all appliance controls and pilot lights are turned off. Return the main gas supply tap to the ON position [see diagrams below]. If you have a gate valve, turn the wheel anti-clockwise to open the valve.
