Propane tanks can be large or portable — and safely buried, virtually invisible to a homeowner. A large, centrally located ASME tank can even provide propane to an entire development of homes. An ASME propane tank can be buried with minimal excavation costs, leaving only a small dome visible just inches above the ground. This dome allows for easy servicing and refilling, and it can be easily screened with shrubs or other plantings to blend seamlessly into a home's overall landscaping. When selecting a location for the placement of a DOT cylinder or ASME storage container, you should evaluate only accessible, safety-approved sites. Your propane retailer can advise you on proper tank size and location and handle both the installation and the gas hookup to the house. From start to finish, you'll get the help you need to do the job right.
Each year, thousands of industry employees and firefighters attend service and safety schools sponsored by the industry. The sessions provide important training in how to quickly control and safely handle a propane emergency.
