Pros And Cons Of Underground Tanks

underground propane tankUnderground propane tanks require special installation techniques and are not at all interchangeable with above ground propane tanks. They also have different safety requirements that must be adhered to in order to maintain integrity.

Although above ground and underground propane tanks have the same fittings and connections, they are placed in different locations on the tank. However, one of the most critical differences is the installation process. Underground tanks are subject to corrosion and other problems from being underground, so they are manufactured with a special protective coating. This coating can wear off though if the tanks is buried beneath gravel or abrasive ground materials. Proper installation is essential; if the tank is not installed properly, it could float upwards during heavy rains. This could potentially destroy gas lines and lead to a leak.

Because of these features, underground tanks typically cost more than above ground tanks. However, they are a more popular option for many homeowners because of the aesthetic appeal. Underground propane tanks are easy for propane providers to refill and are otherwise similar to above ground tanks. Both are manufactured and installed according to strict legal codes and safety measures so you can enjoy the benefits of an underground propane tank stress-free!
