Keeping you, your family, and your property safe is our number one goal for our propane customers. Our propane techs are certified to perform safety inspections on all of your propane equipment, tanks, and lines whenever you need.

While propane is one of the safest forms of energy, knowing what to do in case of an emergency is an important part of using it. If you smell gas or if there is an emergency, don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1 or your local fire department, and call us or fill out our emergency contact form for immediate assistance.

Propane Tank

Stay safe with safety inspections on your whole propane system with our certified propane technicians. From specialized tank painting and performing general tank maintenance to recertifying your tank, you can rest assured that your property will be well protected.

Our professional safety checks include:

  • Verifying the integrity of your propane tank.
  • Performing pressure tests to ensure all propane lines are leak-free.
  • Testing the valves and controls to confirm they are undamaged and working properly.

If you need to have your propane cylinders recertified, our team also offers you two convenient filling station locations in Leander and Bertram, where you can bring them to be examined and filled.

What to Do If You Smell Gas

In any circumstance where you suspect a propane leak, stay safe. Know what to do if you smell propane (a rotten egg or skunk spray smell) in or around your property. Follow these steps!

Extinguish Flames

Put out all smoking material and open flames. Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones, or cell phones. Flames or sparks from these devices can trigger an explosion or fire.

Leave the Area

Get everyone out of the building and away from the property immediately.

Shut Off the Gas

Turn off the main gas supply valve on your propane tank if it’s safe to do so. To close the valve, turn it to the right or clockwise.

Report the Leak

From a neighbor’s house or a property away from the gas leak, call us or your propane retailer. Call 911 or your local fire department if you can’t reach your propane retailer or if you need additional assistance.

Stay Away From the Building or Area

Do not return to your property until your propane retailer, emergency responder, or qualified service technician has determined it safe to do so and issued an all clear.

Get Your System Checked

Before using any of your propane equipment and appliances again, let our certified technicians check your entire system to ensure that it is leak free.
