Here are some items to consider when purchasing a propane tank:
When you install your propane tank containers there are rules and regulations that may vary from town to town on where it can be placed. Gerner Energy follows all federal, state, and local regulations in proper tank placement. This includes both above and below ground tanks.
Painting Your Container
Propane containers must be painted to help prevent corrosion. In most cases, your container will already be painted when you purchase it. If you do paint your container, use only reflective colors. Do not paint the data plate or any valves, gauges, or warning labels. If the data plate is not legible, the container may not be able to be refilled.
Depending on the type of container you purchase and your local municipality, you need to have periodic inspections of your tank to make sure it is still in full working order. Additionally, should your tank ever completely run out, a complete inspection needs to be done to make sure there are no leaks.
