How to turn off the tank
To turn off the gas at your tank, start opening the lid to reveal your shutoff valves. Turn the valve to the right or clockwise to stop the flow of propane. If you have more than one tank, do so for all of them.
There are several reasons to turn off your tank. If you smell gas or suspect a leak, you should turn off your tank, AS LONG AS IT IS SAFE to do so. Stay outside your home and a safe distance away until a qualified professional is present and has tested your system, and indicated it is safe to return. After a storm or natural disaster, if something doesn’t look right with your system, such as a tank that has changed position, or lines that have been bent or broken or potentially damaged, turn off the gas, if safe to do so and call us. Never turn the gas on yourself. Please leave it to a qualified professional.
