Propane Tank Sizes
No matter how you use propane in your home or business, our AmeriGas experts will help you choose the correct tank size and install it for you. We will also provide propane tanks for lease or assist you with the purchase of a propane tank. For more information, check out our propane tank guide for available tank sizes and common uses.
Propane Tank Installation Process
Once you speak with an AmeriGas representative, our experts may need to perform a site survey at your location to decide the best place and size for your tank. A site survey, if necessary, usually occurs within a week of contacting us. Since we know the local regulations, we will also provide guidance regarding permits or paperwork. If a site survey is not needed, we will typically be able to schedule your tank installation within seven business days.
Underground propane tank installation can take up to a full day to install, including digging. Trenching services are not available in all areas, but our Representatives will be able to guide you. Above ground tank installation or swapping out an existing above ground tank for an AmeriGas tank, usually takes only a couple of hours, up to a half day.
For an above ground propane tank, we will put a concrete pad or blocks in place before we install your tank. For underground propane tanks we will make sure the hole meets distance and excavation requirements. AmeriGas technicians may be able to dig a hole for an underground propane tank if one does not already exist or does not meet requirements. Ask about fees associated with excavation.
The AmeriGas service crew will lift and place the tank on its concrete pad or in its hole. After the tank has been set and leveled, we will run the propane gas lines and test the system for leaks. A delivery driver will then fill the tank with propane.
Take comfort knowing we are here for you every step of the way. Following the test and safety inspection, our team will review the installation with you to explain how your system works, walk you through safety procedures, and answer any questions you may have.
