Propane Tanks – What are the different types?
  • Above Ground (A/G):  Above Ground Tanks are set according to local laws and regulations on the ground near your home/office and away from any sources of ignition. they are usually painted white, aluminum, or some other light-reflecting color for safety reasons. A/G tanks are ideal for consumers in mountainous areas, where burial is difficult, and those with a satisfactory space in their yard. These tanks are more accessible by your propane dealer for filling and maintenance as well.AboveGroundTanks_diagram

 

  • Underground (U/G):  Underground Tanks are designed to be buried under the ground surface and are completely out of sight, except for the dome that covers the valves for servicing the tank. A tough chemical and water-resistant coating is applied at the factory, which is designed to be the final coating for the tank prior to its burial in the ground. QSC U/G tanks are also provided with an anode bracket that your dealer can use to provide additional anode protection against corrosion.UnderGroundTanks_diagram
