Two of the most common ways that the process starts is by contacting us directly or a homebuilder will contact us. We have many homebuilders that we work closely with, and they will just let us know when the tank is to be installed, what the installation entails, and we take it from there. If you contact us directly, we will set up a time to meet with you at the location where the tank will be installed and go over the details of the installation. We will suggest the most efficient way to install the propane tank, the yard line, and recommend the appropriate tank size. We will give you a price estimate shortly after we have gathered the necessary information. We can generally install the tank within a week.

Our experienced service department will handle all aspects of the tank installation including:

  • Deliver and set propane tank
  • Install gas service line from tank to the building
  • Install regulator (second stage if needed)
  • Test entire propane gas system
  • Hook up appliances (if needed)

Underground Propane Tank Installation

All underground propane tanks are installed with cathodic protection (magnesium anode & dielectric union) to prolong the life of the tank. There are several factors that go into the placement of an underground propane tank and we’ll handle the process from start to finish.

There are many factors that go into choosing the size of tank most suited to your needs. Propane users have a constant load on their system, meaning there is propane being used throughout the year, regardless of outside temperature. For example, you may cook with propane in your home. You also may use propane to heat your water. These two examples are temperature independent, and don’t necessarily contribute much to the overall amount of propane used during the year, especially if we experience a cold winter. Listed below are some considerations which go into determining propane tank size.

Residential Propane Tanks – Sizing Factors

  • Square footage of house
  • Number of heaters, water heaters, etc. using propane
  • Size of heaters, appliances, etc. (BTU Rating)
  • Presence of pool heater or hot tub on propane
  • Quality of insulation
  • Interest in supply protection
