It is for your safety that the gas system remain in a safe condition at all times. Should the gas system develop a leak (or if a gas line or shut off valve remains unplugged), a fire, explosion or serious injury could result. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL BRANCH OFFICE IF YOU EVER MOVE, CHANGE GAS APPLIANCES OR MAKE ANY FORM OF ALTERATION TO YOUR PROPANE SYSTEM.
All of your gas appliances, including your space heater, wall heater, furnace, boiler, water heater, etc., should be installed by a qualified service person, to make sure the work is done properly, safely and according to code.
If you are a customer and your home improvements include landscaping or exterior home improvement work, please contact our branch office before you start digging. In many cases propane gas lines run underground between the propane storage tank and your house. We will work with you to locate your propane gas lines and ensure that your home improvement plans do not put your safety at risk. So give us a call and “be smart before you dig.”
You the propane consumer now have a legal duty to warn your propane company.
