Propane Tank Installation

Propane Tank Installation Process

Our team of trained propane professionals are here to help you through the process of installing a propane tank at your home or business. A licensed professional must install your propane tank and a resident or company employee must be present during the installation.

Schedule Your Installation

Once you speak with an Long Beach Steel Corp 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 guide 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 Long Beach Steel Corp tank, usually takes only a couple of hours, up to a half day.

Step 2 Installation Process

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. Long Beach Steel Corp  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 Long Beach Steel Corp 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.

Step 3 Safety & System Walkthrough

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.

How long will a residential propane tank last?

Propane tank lifespan

Many factors, such as weather and soil composition, will affect your tank’s longevity. But generally speaking, when properly maintained, a high-quality propane tank can last decades.

An above-ground galvanized steel tank can last 30 years or more; aluminum tanks can last longer. Underground tanks are typically expected to last 20 to 30 years.
