If your home has propane appliances, you should schedule a regular check of your whole propane system.

Your local propane gas supplier will send a specially-trained technician to check your system for leaks and ensure that it meets all safety standards. The technician will also check your tank, piping, regulators, gauges, connectors, valves, vents, thermostats, pilots, burners, and appliance controls to make sure they're in good working condition.

Keep Full. Be Safe.

The Texas Railroad Commission requires all propane gas companies to perform a leak check when refilling an empty tank, to ensure the integrity of your propane piping system. Your propane supplier may have to charge for this service, so you'll save time and money by putting your account on automatic fill.


The Savings You Want!

Propane offers you the savings of a gas home combined with the pleasures of country living. Propane appliances such as water heaters, space heaters, clothes dryers and stoves are more efficient and cost less to operate than comparable electric units.


  1. 1. Extinguish all smoking materials and any other open flames or sources of ignition. Everyone should vacate the building, vehicle or area.

  2. 2. Exit the premises without using any electric switches, appliances, thermostats or telephones​. 

  3. 3. If it is safe to do so, close the gas shutoff valve on the propane tank or cylinder.

  4. 4. Report the leak. Once you are safely away from the leak, call your propane provider right away. If you cannot reach your propane provider, please contact 911 or your local fire department.​

  5. 5. Even if you do not continue to smell propane, do not open or turn on the propane supply valve. Do not re-enter the building, vehicle or area. Let a qualified propane service technician and/or emergency personnel check for escaped propane.

  6. 6. Have a properly trained propane service technician repair the leak. The propane service technician or emergency responder needs to determine that the leak situation has been fully resolved.

  7. 7. Return to the building, camper, RV or area only when the qualified service technician or emergency personnel indicates it is safe to do so.
