Are there any safety steps I should keep in mind when using my propane tank?

Please keep these important propane tank tips in mind at all times:

  • Using soapy water, check tank and valve for leaks. Open the valve but leave the appliance off while testing. See the side of your Blue Rhino tank for more info or click here to view the video.
  • Never store a spare tank beneath a grill.
  • Always store tanks upright.
  • Never store a tank in temperatures of 125°F or more.
  • When transporting, secure tank upright in a well-ventilated area of your vehicle. Drive directly to where it will be used. Do not allow tank to sit in a vehicle unattended.
  • Never use or store a propane tank indoors.
  • If storing your grill indoors, disconnect tank. Move tank to a secure, well-ventilated location outdoors.
  • Do not try to repair a damaged tank or tank valve.
  • Take a damaged tank to a qualified propane supplier for repairs or disposal.
  • Ensure the tank valve handle is in the "Closed" position when the tank is not in use.
