Propane Tank tips


Have you ever had trouble filling your 5 Gal LPG Tank?

Before you bring it back thinking it’s defective, you may want to try this trick:

Place a 2×4 board on the ground, grab the handle of the tank, and smack the bottom of the tank against the board.  These 5 gallon tanks are shipped without any air, and sometimes the OPD valve accidentally closes shut.  Quickly banging the tank down can usually solve this problem.  If the tank continues to refuse to fill, then it’s time to bring it back (if it’s new….if your tank is over 90 days old, it’s no longer covered by the manufacturer’s warranty)
