Exchanging the Gas Meter

SaskEnergy must remove and replace the natural gas meter from time to time. 

We may need to exchange the meter for many reasons: 

  • Testing or replacement to ensure compliance and accuracy under Measurement Canada regulations
  • Routine maintenance
  • Damage to the meter
  • Upgrading to a new model
  • Investigating a complaint about measurement accuracy

Booking an Appointment

If you have received a letter, tag or phone call indicating we must replace the meter, contact us to book an appointment. We’ll schedule a time that is convenient for you and there will be no charge to complete the work.

What to Expect 

A qualified field representative will be at your property for 20 to 30 minutes. They will: 

  1. Take a final meter read
  2. Turn off the natural gas
  3. Remove the old meter and install the new meter
  4. Turn the natural gas back on
  5. Perform a safety check to make sure there are no gas leaks
  6. Take a new meter read
  7. Relight your natural gas appliances
