Discretly propane with Clark's underground tank progamunderground_tank3.png

What's that? You like all the benefits of going with gas energy because it is clean, safe, and according to the Department of Energy's national averages, it is more economical than electricity for your beautiful dream home, but you do not like the looks of a storage tank.

Relax! Two popular ways to encompass or camouflage propane storage tanks from view are to integrate an aboveground tank into the landscape design or the underground placement of the tank to make gas the "hidden asset" of any new home beyond the natural gas mains. At Clark Gas & Oil, we encourage you to allow us to become involved during the early stages of your building process. Not only can our sales team save you time, money and unnecessary hassle, but our experience also focuses on the details such as aesthetics. Our assistance includes the selection of the properly sized storage tank for your future needs. The tank is then installed by us. The planned tank site is then camouflaged by fencing, lattice, and/or painted so that it does not detract in any way from the home's beauty or the integrity of the landscape design. Either way, the options for tank placement allow you to be accommodated beautifully with propane whether you live in a pristine estate or a restrictive subdivision.

What is involved with going underground?karl_undergroundtank.png

It's really quite easy, safe and inexpensive. Single family homes are served by various tank sizes depending on demand requirements. They range from 100 gallon tanks for single appliance usage to 1,000+ gallons for large homes with many gas appliances, possibly including swimming pools and/or hot tubs heated by propane. Typically, a 500 gallon tank is ample for an average four-bedroom home. The excavation for an average underground 500 gallon tank is usually low impact; the hole is only about four feet wide by twelve feet long by five feet deep; therefore the cost is minimal. Once the tank has been installed, only a small dome protruding inches from the ground is visible. This secured dome houses the important valves, guages, and pressure regulator of the distribution system, which we use for refilling the tank, as well as routine servicing.

With simple landscaping, ranging from ordinary grass to decorative shrubs, the dome is scarcely noticeable. The tank is constructed of heavy steel and painted with a special mastic coating coupled with sacrificial anode bags to protect the system from corrosion. With an underground tank, gas will be supplied both quietly and discreetly for all your home's propane gas energy needs.
