Keeping the gas flowing

Recommended Posts

How do you guys keep gas going to your heater. It seems like either i dont have good pressure or I'm sucking too much gas off my 20lb tank. I have a garage heater Procom for the wall. If it flames out and you let it sit for a while then it will run agian. Is it simple as to get a bigger tank?

Sounds like you may be pulling too much gas and the bottle is freezing up. Is it that big of a heater? You may need a bigger bottle if that's the case.

I agree with waterbeater . The problem is usually amplified with colder weather. Try a 100 pounder.

Something that is a wall mount that you feel is sufficient enough to heat your garage can not run on a 20lb'er. It might run for a bit, but is flowing at too high a rate and it ends up freezing as the liquid is vaporizing to a gas.

You need somethign with a much larger capacity and probably a better regulator.

You're pulling too much material out too fast. You're using up too much of the total volume at once. The small tank can't keep up.

I have a 28000 procom. It is proably the tank. Thing is it ran fairly well when it was 30 35 degrees. It must make a big differance at 20 degrees or less. I do have a 40lb tank I ran it with when I had it at our old place and it ran good BUT I had it in a box outside the garage not sure if that kept it just warm enough? It even [PoorWordUsage]s out on the low setting after a while I thought it would run on low. It has a Low Med High.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
