The Empowerment of Owning LP Storage Tanks!

1. SAVINGS PER GALLON

The “pros” of owning your own LP storage tank begins with savings per gallon. LP companies love to fill LP storage tanks that they do not have to set, or own. That’s where your savings start and can be as much as $1.00 to $2.00 per gallon (depending on the provider). And the savings grows with the number of LP storage tanks, or size, you purchase. In other words, the more propane you can buy, generally, the cheaper the cost will be. 

2 FREEDOM TO CHOOSE YOUR LPG PROVIDER

The next important “pro” in owning your own LP tank is the freedom to choose where you get your propane product. When you are using a company owned LP tank, you are committed to using that company ONLY for purchasing propane product. It is illegal for any propane company to fill another propane company's LP storage tanks. That also means that you are at the mercy for pricing and propane availability by the company owning your LP storage tank. So, unless you have the time to stay diligent and check their pricing before each delivery you may never know whether you were paying more per gallon than you should be.  

3. OBTAINABILITY OF LPG

With owning your own LP storage tank you already know you’ll get a better price and you can check with any company before buying LP product to be certain. As for obtainability of propane product, we all know that every once in a while there is some crisis that arises with propane availability. Some of the smaller companies run so low that they have to ration their delivery volume. On the other hand, some of the bigger companies with lots of propane can take advantage of the situation by increasing their price. Owning your own LP storage tank allows you to buy from whomever has the product at the best price available. 

4. A FEW WORDS ABOUT LP TANK MAINTENANCE

Mechanical maintenance of your LP storage tank(s) and possibility for failure? The LP storage tanks come with a one year warranty for the valves and general condition. As for maintenance, touch-up painting of the LP storage tank when a rust spot may appear and keeping the lid on the LP tank to protect the valves and regulator is about the only real maintenance there is. Other than that, the LP tank simply sits there and does very little but save you money.
