Water meter

Asked AV Mechanical to come and change some plumbing around the water meter to suite city’s requirement better. Here I’ve asked them to change the piping all the way to 1″ size so that it is consistent with the incoming size. Also two ball valves are installed before and after the water meter as an overall shut off. With my manifold system, I really don’t need a main shutoff after the water meter since I can shut off each component individually. But having a main shutoff is part of city’s requirement and it probably is better for me anyway.
