We don't have to tell you that this is a tough economy. While you are price shopping for the best distributor, here are some things you need to know. There are some companies out there that have adopted sneaky tactics in order to gain business. One of the most common is to offer you a super low price in order to reel you in. Then as time goes on, the price gradually gets higher up to the level that their current customers are paying. The difference can be over a dollar a gallon. Always ask if the price you are given is an introductory price, and ask what their current 2nd year customers are paying per gallon. Sometimes you'll be very surprised what the difference is. Another one is a claim that their propane is a higher grade than others, and may even go as far to say that their fuel will last twice as long. This is completely false. To last twice as long means twice the BTU per gallon, and this is simply untrue. Most of the Propane companies in the State of Ohio have the same grade of propane, so don't be fooled by this one. The big differences between companies are quality of service, price, and the biggest one safety.

Please note, this page is intended as a guide only. Codes and regulations are always subject to change. This guide is only a fraction of all of the installation codes we deal with per NFPA 58 and NFPA 54. Please call with any placement questions before your set date.

  Codes and Regulations for Above Ground Tank Placement:

   For most residential and some commercial applications, a tank size from 320 gal to 500 gal would be used. Tanks in this size range must be a minimum of 10 ft away from any permanent structure, 10 ft away from any ignition source (power meters, transformers, pool heaters ECT.), 10 ft from property lines, 25 ft from fire pits or other open flames, 25 ft from other fuel tanks (gasoline, diesel, heating oil, ECT.), and can not be placed near septic systems, or under overhead power lines.


Codes and regulations for gas inlet placement:


    In most applications, two LP gas regulators are required. One is on the tank, and the other attaches directly to the gas inlet (commonly referred to as a stub). This gas inlet should not be within 3 ft of an above window, or 5 ft of a window below the stub. We also ask that the stub is not more than 48 inches above the ground, and no less than 18 inches above ground. It also needs to be away from power meters, a/c units, appliance air intakes, and other sources of ignition. If placement to these guidelines is not possible, there are other alternatives, such as running a vent tube off of the regulator. However, this is not a preferred method. Please let us know before your set date, if these requirements can not be met.



Other Important Information:


   A 500 gal propane tank weighs almost 1000 pounds empty. The Service Tech will need to be able to drive a crane truck close to where you want the tank. We can not cross septic systems, or shallow tile pipe due to the weight of this vehicle. Doing so can cause severe damage to your septic and/or drainage systems. This vehicle needs an area that is unobstructed to at least 10 feet high and wide, without excessively steep grades to safely maneuver into the tank setting position. 


    The service tech will also need to cut a trench about 4 inches wide, and 12 to 18 inches deep from the tank location, to the gas inlet on the structure. All underground utility lines, and drainage tiles that could be damaged by the trenching machine should be marked. These lines can be marked by your utility company, or by contacting OUPS (Ohio Utilities Protection Service) At 1-800-362-2764. You can also go to their web site by clicking here. If you're not sure where would be the best place to set your tank, just give us a call.

Underground Tanks:

Underground tanks are also available. If you are interested in an underground system, please call us for pricing information. Underground tanks are not available for lease.
