Tank Working Pressure
If you are looking at purchasing your tank, either new or secondhand, the first thing to know is the tank working pressure (PSI) - for a company such as ourselves to be allowed to fill up a tank, it must have a PSI level of 250. TIP: to see a tank's working pressure, look at the data plate on the tank itself. It should give you all the information you need.
Did you know propane tanks can only get filled to 80%? - Propane, similar to water, turns into vapour when pressurized or heated. Considering weather fluctuates and affects the propane state, there needs to be extra room inside the tank so it can have the ability to expand. That is why it is essential to have a gauge that works. This allows you, the consumer, to know the level of your tank, and it helps your propane delivery driver refill your tank to the appropriate level.
