Tanks Come in Many Sizes and Shapes...
Including Hard-to-See

Propane tanks can be large or portable and safely
buried, virtually invisible to a homeowner.

There are two main types of propane tanks. DOT cylinders, familiar to homeowners with propane grills, are generally used above ground and typically don't contain more than 25 gallons of propane. Horizontal ASME tanks can hold 250 to more than 1,000 gallons and are safe to bury underground, out of sight.

On average, a 500-gallon tank can easily provide the energy for a four-bedroom home, while a tank with a capacity of 1,000 gallons or more can fuel a larger home with additional energy demands such as a swimming pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen, and patio lighting. A large, centrally located ASME tank can even provide propane to an entire development of homes.

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.
