Propane safety inspections start with a certified technician checking and testing your system’s critical safety controls to make sure everything is in proper order. The technician will also check for leaks in the system and perform inspection of lines and possible loose fittings.
The leak test consists of usually finding the smell of gas in your home. Sometimes the leak is so small that it cannot be detected by smell, and in that case the technician will run diagnosis to understand if there is pressure loss in the system. If you do detect the smell of propane or an unusual smell near your appliances, contact us immediately!
During the propane system inspection, technicians will test your system’s critical safety controls to ensure they are working correctly. They will also check for leaks in the entire system and perform a visual tank inspection to look for rust and loose fittings. Now, let’s delve deeper into these inspection processes.
Besides the leak test, the technician will perform the following tests as well:
- Checking Safety Controls
- Performing cathodic protection inspection
- Cleaning and inspecting regulator vent screens
- Touching up rust spots on above-ground tanks
- Inspecting venting regulators and bonding
- Replacing worn-out or missing safety stickers
Your home is your most sacred place, so when investing in a propane system, make sure to do the proper safety checks as well. Regardless whether propane is used in your residence or place of business, regular propane safety inspections need to be done. The inspections should occur every 6-12 months at a minimum. It’s a good idea to request an inspection when getting a tank fill. Get a qualified professional who knows how to carry out the propane safety inspections (like we have here at Valley Propane!).
