Storing Your Propane
Once you have your stock built up, knowing how to safely store your propane is important. Follow these guidelines for some insight on this matter.
- Store Outside: Although storing the tank inside may seem like the easiest option for keeping your propane out of harm’s way, this is not recommended. Storing the tank inside could put your home and family in danger. A leak can trigger an explosion or cause illness to those inhaling the fumes.
- Store Upright: Cover the propane tank, then store it upright. This will prevent moisture from accumulating and causing issues. While many worry about keeping it outside, the tank will be fine in drastically low temperatures.
- Keep It Off-Ground: It is best to store your propane tank on a low shelf, off the ground. This will help your tank avoid moisture and other hazards that may cause it to rust, thus affecting its ability to function correctly. A simple step such as this will keep it secure and protected until you need it.
- Be Extra Cautious: For added protection, keep the propane tank stored away from anything that could be potentially hazardous. Dryer vents and furnace vents are both examples of something that could combine with a leak and cause major issues. Also, keep your tanks away from children at all costs to avoid any sickness or injury.
