The George Propane Tank Monitoring System
How does it work?
The Tank Monitoring System consists of a transmitter connected directly
to your propane tank and a small receiver connected to a phone jack in
your home. The system sends a wireless signal from the tank to your house
and continually monitors your propane tank level and the temperature inside
your home. Several times a month the receiver calls George Propane to
let us know how much propane you have in your tank and the temperature
inside your home. The receiver also calls George Propane when either the
propane tank level or inside temperature falls below a predetermined set
point, greatly reducing the chance of an out-of-gas or freeze-up event
at your home or business. In addition to notifying George Propane, you
can also be notified via FAX or email. You may also view the status of
your propane tank level and inside temperature on the internet ( www.centeron.net )
at any time.
Is it reliable?
Yes. We researched and field tested several models before deciding on
Centeron by Robertshaw, a worldwide leader in automation and controls
for over 50 years.
Where should I put the receiver?
The receiver needs to be plugged into a phone jack. Many people put it
in the kitchen or a guest bedroom. It can share a phone line with an answering
machine or a modem without interference.
Will it interrupt my telephone calls?
No. The monitoring system knows when you're on the phone, so it will not
interrupt your call. The receiver will wait until you are not using the
phone before making a call to George Propane.
Will I see a charge on my phone bill?
No. The unit calls a toll-free number.
Does it make any noise?
No. The receiver works silently.
What do I have to do?
The Tank Monitoring System requires very little maintenance on your part.
If you ever notice that the receiver does not show a green light, check
that it is plugged in. If you are certain that the power is on and still
do not see a green light, call George Propane.
I'm on Automatic Refill. Why would I want a tank monitor?
- Our goal is to provide the best possible service at an affordable price.
To meet this goal, George Propane needs to be as efficient as possible.
- By installing a monitor, you help us deliver the optimal amount of propane
to your tank, increasing our efficiency and helping us to keep down our
costs and your price per gallon.
- Our customers' usage patterns sometimes change. Simply adding a gas
appliance such as a decorative hearth product, hot water heater, space
heater, pool heater, barbeque grill or generator can increase your fuel
usage, causing you to run out of fuel if we are not notified. Discontinuing
use of wood or pellet-burning stoves can also have the same results.
- Sometimes winter weather prevents us from making a delivery. With a
monitor, we can be sure your delivery arrives when you need it most.
- With the inside temperature monitoring feature, even if your residence
is not a second home, you can go away for a long weekend or winter vacation,
feeling assured that your tank level and inside temperature are monitored
and that we'll be notified if they fall below the set points.
