Why Recertify Propane Tanks?
By law and for your safety, propane tanks need to be recertified at various times. Since portable propane tanks – like grill tanks, forklift cylinders, rv tanks, and propane generators – are considered part of the Department of Transportation (or DOT cylinders), they have to be certified by professionals to meet the department’s safety requirements.
Larger propane tanks need to be recertified, too. As part of state and local regulations, larger tanks require regular inspections that can be performed with any of our tank maintenance services.
When Should Propane Tanks Be Recertified?
A general rule of thumb is to have your tanks recertified every 5 to 12 years depending on the date of manufacture. The date can be found stamped on the collar of your propane cylinders.
But if you notice any visual defects on your tank, like dents, cracks, or other damage, let our experts take a look and make sure it doesn’t need to be replaced.
