LPG gas tanks

Post by robjw on Fri Jun 06, 2014 1:03 pm

I had heard that above ground gas tanks (LPG) are now illegal and you must now have a below ground one installed. Does anyone know if this is true ? Also is there a date by which this should have been done ? Presumably your gas supplier is responsible for providing and installing the new one ?

Rob,  Looking at other posts today you'll see that heating with gas is even more mad than it ever was.... cooking with gas takes so little that a little canister will last for weeks if not months. So the real answer to your query might be 'neither'.
My bombola needs to be moved (re the agibilita) but as it lasts 6 years between refills I'm going over to bottles and getting shot of it.  Trouble is it went to ZERO on the guage last summer but still refuses to run out.

Gas in Bottles over here is so cheap, ours at €30 a bottle lasts for a couple of months at least; in fact last year we only used 5 bottles. Definately the best alternative.

Is that mainly for cooking Flip? We use approx 2 x 47 Kg bottles a year. When we rented a apartment, then we used approx 2x 47kg every 2 weeks or so in the winter, plus loads of wood as well.

Folks - all I want to know is whether it is legal or not legal to have an above ground tank. I don't want to change to solar, I don't want smaller tanks or anything else !

My LPG gas tank is currently below ground robjw.  As it's predicted to be 30C+ here tomorrow you'll understand that I presently have no plans to dig it up.

Dont think so  - you can have an aboev ground one but it must be fenced, gated, set on a concrete plinth etc etc - they hahve to be further from the property than a sunken one - which only has to be 6 metres I think.   But I could be completely wrong and now you have to sink them all.....
