If you own a propane tank for your residential or commercial space, it’s important to keep up with propane tank maintenance. Doing so will not only help your propane tank, but it will also help provide your home with the fuel it needs. Here are some of the top propane tank maintenance tips to help you keep your tank at its best.
- Brush away snow and ice. Snow and ice can have negative effects on your propane tank if it sits on it for too long. Always be sure to gently brush away any snow or ice buildup after a snow storm. Make sure to use a broom rather than something metal that could scratch your tank. Snowblowers should also be avoided, as they could damage your tank.
- Make sure it’s visible to delivery trucks. You don’t want your tank to get dry. However, delivery trucks can’t deliver if your tank is out of the way or otherwise difficult to spot. Make sure your propane tank is visible and accessible.
- Look out for leaks. Regularly inspect your propane tanks to make sure there are no leaks. Pouring warm and soapy water over your tank will help you spot any leaks, as bubbles will appear in the presence of a leak.
