Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m getting a propane tank. Where can I place it?

Propane tanks must be placed ten feet from any structure (your home, barn, or sheds.) Ten feet away from any source of ignition (you A/C unit, water pumps, or any other electrical equipment) and six feet from power lines. We also need to be able to reach the tank from our truck we typical have around a hundred foot of hose so please keep that in mind.

I was going to paint my tank, what color does it need to be?

Propane tanks need to be painted white, aluminum, or some other light heat reflective color. This helps keep the tank cool so the relief valve won’t pop off.

When do I need to call to order gas?

Our minimum delivery is 100 gallons so as long as your tank can hold that much you can order. We recommend that you order between 20 and 10 ten percent so you still have plenty of gas just in case we can’t get to you that day.

What if I run out of gas?

Please please please try to not run out of gas, while we can almost always get to you the same day unforeseen problems can always arise. I you run out of gas also by law we have to do a leak check on your line to make sure you didn’t run out because you have a leak, this may be an extra charge.

I’m not sure I’m reading my gauge right what does it mean when I have 20?

The gauge is a percentage gauge so if you have a 250 gallon tank every 10 percent is 25 gallons and 100 gallons is 40 percent, if you have a 500 gallon tank every 10 percent is 50 gallons and 100 gallons is 20 percent and so forth.

I asked to have my tank filled but it’s only showing 80 percent, why?

We can only fill tanks to 80 percent of the capacity this give the liquid propane room to vaporize and prevents the relief valve from popping off.

What is a relief valve anyway?

The pressure relief valve is a safety device located on the top of your tank if the pressure in you tank gets to high then it will “pop off” and vent pressure into the atmosphere, if your tank does this (it is pretty rare) then just stay away from it the valve should reset in about 15 to 30 minutes, but if it does not then give us a call.

Can I pour a small slab for my tank to sit on?

Yes absolutely this is perhaps the best thing for your tank to sit on. We have large cement pads that we set them on but if you have the resources for a slab then we recommend it, but if not then the pads do come with the tank.

My tank is leaning or sinking do I need to get it leveled?

Yes an un-level tank can cause the gauge to read wrong, and if your tank is touching the ground then this can cause it to rust.

I bought a new stove and I have black soot on the bottom of my pans, is there something wrong?

Yes most likely it has never been converted to work with propane, almost all stoves and dryers come set for natural gas and need to be converted to propane. Other appliances such as water heaters and gas logs come set for one or the other and are rarely convertible just make sure to tell the person you are buying them from that you have propane so you don’t get the wrong thing.

Can you fill my cylinders when you deliver gas to my house?

No sorry but are trucks are not equipped to be able to this and it would be dangerous.
