Bottini Fuels Discusses The Validity Of Repairing Your Propane Tank
With more and more people trying to “do it yourself” (DIY), Bottini Fuels knows it is just a matter of time before there are DIY projects for propane tanks. The first thing that you need to know is that in most municipalities it is against the law to modify propane tanks. The reason is that it often leads to an unsafe or illegal situation. We will give you the example of a person wanting to add heat to a room that does not have a way to heat it. It is not as simple as running some tubing to said room, adding a regulator, and then turning the heat on. There is no way to tell if the fittings are properly installed or if there is not going to be a leak in the future. The latter is the most important because if the house fills with propane, a spark, could not only destroy the home but possibly hurt or kill any occupants. This goes for the homes close to the original house as well. We have some better ideas on how to make any adjustments to your equipment or tank.
Trouble Shooting or Repairs
The first thing that you are going to want to do is to identify the problem. Once you have done that, you need to contact a professional and ask about your options. In very few cases will they tell you to make the repairs yourself. The reasons for this were clearly stated in the opening paragraph. As they will have the knowledge to perform the repairs properly, they would be the first people to make said repairs. You may be thinking that you can just check the internet or find a book that will tell you how to make the repairs. If it was as simple as that, then there would be no need for propane specialist. Add that to the years of knowledge they have concerning different aspects of specific systems and you will find that you are much better of calling them in the first place.
Moving Your Tank
It is not enough to tell you that making repairs to your system is bad, we need you to know that even moving your tank can be bad. While you are completely entitled to moving your tank if you are unhappy with its location, you should contact a professional. We are not trying to scam you out of money. It is just that we have the proper equipment and knowledge to do it safely the first time. You would not want a legal battle on your hands just because you wanted to move your tank. So, make the call to our service professionals and we can put it nearly anywhere you desire it.
