Propane Tank Repairs

 

Propane tanks will most likely need to get repairs if they are not maintained properly.  If the propane tank is beyond repair then the tank will be taken out of service for safety reasons.   If repairs need to be performed on a propane tank or system, a licensed certified propane technician must perform the necessary repairs or maintenance.  If you are not certified, do not attempt to perform repairs on a propane tank or system, it could be dangerous.

Propane Tank Maintenance

 

You must keep propane tank painted a reflective color such as white or gray.  By keeping your propane tank painted a reflective color you can prevent the tank from absorbing heat from the sun.  If the tank absorbs heat from the sun it can cause excess pressure buildup inside the tank, which causes leaks.  If this occurs you must call your propane company to schedule for a licensed certified propane technician to repair your tank.
