60-gallon propane tank:

If you are using propane for only cooking OR clothes drying, this will likely be your tank. It’s about 43 inches tall and 2 feet in diameter. This size tank can only be placed aboveground.

120-gallon propane tank:

This is the tank for when you have one or two propane appliances in your home, such as a stove, space heater, fireplace or clothes dryer. Commercially, it can be used for cooking, dry cleaning and temporary heating. The tank size is about 4 feet high and 3 feet in diameter. It must be placed at least 5 feet from a door or window, and at least 10 feet from a source of ignition. If you add more propane appliances or use propane for home heating, up to 4 tanks are allowed to be placed next to each other when the other clearance requirements are met. These tanks can be installed either aboveground or underground.

500-gallon propane tank:

Residential uses include whole-house heating, water heating, generators and pool heating. This is the tank size most commonly used in homes between 2,500 and 4,500 square feet. Uses for commercial propane tanks include heating, cooking, dry cleaning, crop drying and temporary heating. This tank is horizontal, being about 3.5 feet tall and 10 feet long. It is the smallest tank size for metered systems for communities or shared commercial buildings. They can be installed either aboveground or underground. They must be placed at least 10 feet from a home or building, 10 feet from a source of ignition and 10 feet from a property line. When installed underground, the pit for the tank will be 5 feet wide, 14 feet long, 4 feet deep (after a minimum of 6 inches of sand is laid) and 8 to 10 yards of clean sand will be used.

1,000-gallon propane tank:

If your home is larger than 4,500 square feet and has a lot of propane appliances such as home heating, water heating, generators and pool heating, you may want to look into this size. Commercial uses include heating, cooking, dry cleaning, crop drying and temporary heating. It can also be used for metered systems for small communities and medium-sized shared commercial buildings. The tank is about 3.5 feet tall and 16 feet long and can be installed either underground or aboveground. It must be placed at least 10 feet from a home or building, a source of ignition and a property line. If two of these tanks are placed within 3 feet of each other, those minimum placements increase to 25 feet. The pit for your underground 1,000-gallon propane tank will be 5 feet wide, 20 feet long and 4.5 feet deep (after the minimum of 6 inches of sand is laid), with 15 yards of clean sand.

2,000-gallon propane tank:

This size tank is for larger commercial uses, including larger communities and shared commercial buildings. The tank is around 24 feet long and can be installed either aboveground or underground. These tanks must be placed at least 25 feet from a building, source of ignition, property line and any other propane tank larger than a 125-gallon capacity. The pit for an underground tank of this size will be 6 feet wide, 28 feet long, 5 feet deep (after the minimum 6 inches of sand is laid) with 25 yards of clean sand.

Tank monitoring for peace of mind

Getting your propane with Automatic Delivery from George Propane is great. No need to go outside and regularly check your propane tank gauge to see if it’s time for the propane tanks refill.

There are times, however, where you may have used more propane than normal. Take away any worry that you may run low by leasing an Otodata wireless propane tank monitor from George Propane!

A transmitter in the monitor regularly updates George Propane with how much propane is in your tank. And, once you reach a predetermined tank gauge level, it notifies George Propane so we can schedule a prompt propane delivery to your home or business.

No run-out guarantee with your tank monitor!
