Hi TigerTiger,

I hope you are joking!!!

TELL HIM TO STOP IMMEDIATELY- that is one of the most dangerous things you could EVER do to a gas main!

He is endangaring both HIS LIFE AND YOURS/FAMILY, EVEN THE STREET YOU LIVE ON!!!!!!! >>:-(

HE IS PUTTING PRE-MIXED GAS INTO HIS GAS APPLIANCES AND THIS COULD RESULT IN A VERY BIG BANG!!!!!! <*< <*< :police:

I AM NOT EXXAGERATING THE RISKS HERE- IT IS ONE THING CHEATING THE SYSTEM BUT YOU ARE LIVING NEXT DOOR TO A TIME BOMB- IF HE DOESN'T STOP RING THE GAS EMERGENCY LINE ON 0800 111 999- AND/OR THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.

YOU MAY NOT THINK IT WOULD BE NIEGHBOURLY TO DO SO, BUT NEITHER ARE HIS ACTIONS!!!

IF YOU CAN MAKE HIM GET A NEW METER IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO DO THIS ANYWAY!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS CARRY ON!

Stealing is stealing !

As soon as you give any support to such practises (even by pretending you do not know they go on) you are adding to the bills of the honest customers and in many cases, to all tax payers.

What is more, it is not just the cost of what folk steal, it is also the cost of the contingency all sellers build into their charges because they know they will have thieves and non-payers.

I also agree it is not always the poor who steal. By far the most significant losses can be notched up to the greedy rich whose scale of dishonesty can be staggering, making some of the cheating by the poor quite insignificant.

TT, PLEASE listen to Greg he does not overstate the danger. Air in a gas pipe/main is as dangerous as it gets instead of pure gas you now have a highly volatile explosive mixture.

Many years ago 1964 or there abouts I along with others was called to the site of an explosion where a mains installation gang had got it wrong. They were purging a newly installed main of the gas/air mixture and the flash arresters failed. The mixture in the main exploded lifting 400yards of 10 inch cast iron main out of the trench. One man died and two others were badly hurt.

If your man lives near any of your family report him NOW before he kills someone.

As i work for the gas industry,we had a similar incident.
They were purging the main with air,to clear the gas and the flash arrester failed,
Luckily nobody was hurt but the result was not so nice.
Recently a sub contractor,blew up and killed a few people.
So the answer is leave all ulities alone or you may end up dead

I went to a safety demo in Northumbria last year. A full size containor with one end cut off and covered in polythene sealed with tape.

1 kg of gas was then injected into the containor and ignited.

We were watching from about 250m away, the blast shockwave made us all stagger backwards.

I work in a gas fired power station and didnt fully appreciate the power of gas until this demo, so I say:

NEVER mess with gas!

Remember your school days science class ordinary tin can with press on lid, hole in lid and hole in bottom of can. Both towns gas and natural gas are lighter than air. Place can on tripod and fill with gas using the bottom hole, when full of gas light top hole with match and retire sharply. Gas burns with a bright yellow flame air enters the bottom hole until the mixture inside becomes explosive.

Flame disappears into the can and BOOM one destroyed can, 20% gas 80% air.

Re cable television,and free for alls,what you have described is near enough to the way it was done,all you had to do was get into the main junction box add a splitter then run cable to you TV,
another way is,and this is still in use as i speak,and all you have to do is buy a D-Box i.e.digi box from Germany,change the two pin plug to a three, plug it in and hey presto,all channels no bills
