Propane tanks typically require little maintenance and they’re built to last a long time. But eventually, they need do need their proper maintenance, and in due time, need to be outright replaced.
Most residential, above-ground propane storage tanks should last about 30 years, although factors like the weather and climate can potentially shorten the lifespan. We inspect your tank for signs of age every time we deliver fuel, but you should know the telltale signs that you may need a service call. Here’s some important things to look out for:
