20# propane storage

13 posts in this topic

Edited: Is it fine to store a full 20# propane tank outside during the winter/summer?

Sure it's fine. Who brings their propane tank in off of their barbeque? Mine has never been inside at all.

Thats where they are supposed to be. Keep it out of direct sunlight and it will be fine!

Yeah, isn't that kind of a rule, outside only?

Outside is a lot safer. If they start to leak or gas off, you sure don't want it contained in the garage. That could get pictures of your house's remains on the evening news.

I don't think leaving them outside hurts them. If that was the case the local LP dealer wouldn't leave 100's of them outside all the time. grin

Got a point, plus all the farms with those big tanks as well. Like I said earlier, I have always heard that outside is the way to go

Right on thanks. I've never dealt with anything bigger than a 1 pounder. Always used charcoal grills smile

I take it in the summer just cover it up outa direct sunlight?

I actually don't think sunlight even bothers them. I have mine on my grill in the sun, no problems.

Yah, if I had an explosion for every 20lb tank I see sitting in the sun all summer, I wouldn't have to put up with some of my neighbors anymore. smile The only thing wrong with letting them sit outside is that its a way for passer-bys to save $25 by stealing yours. frown
