How to prepare for a flood or hurricane:
- If at all possible, secure the propane tank to the ground or a solid object, such as a large tree.
- Turn the main gas shut-off valve to the off position (Remember: Righty-tighty)
- Close and fasten the protective dome on the tank.
- Turn off all appliance pilot lights, control valves and appliance shut-off valves.
- Be sure the tank’s percentage gauge reads above 30%.
After the flood or hurricane has passed, look for any signs of structural damage.
Call one of our qualified service technicians if:
- You smell propane gas.
- The propane tank has shifted or moved.
- The regulator(s) was exposed to water.
- The gas lines have pulled away from the tank or appliance, or the lines are damaged, bent, broken or exposed where they used to be buried.
- The propane appliances or controls were exposed to water.
