The location of the container is important. Specific rules about the placement of LPGas containers can be found in the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA)58. There are standards for ASME above ground containers, ASME underground containers, and DOT cylinders.

One of the most important dimensions given is the distance to a source of ignition. In most cases, this should be at least 10 feet. Verify that the containers you install are properly located in accordance with NFPA-58. Also verify that the container location is accessible for safe filling from the bulk delivery truck.

Note 1- The relief valve, filling connection, and liquid level gauge vent connection at the container must be at least 10 ft. from any exterior source of ignition, openings into direct-vent appliances, or mechanical ventilation air intakes.
Note 2- No part of an underground tank shall be less than 10 ft. from an important building or line of adjoining property that may be built upon.

Be sure to check with your local fire and building authorities for additional installation requirements.
