What is involved with going underground?
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.
