Important Flood Damage Information for Propane Gas Systems
Following a flood or high water event, the urge to inspect everything and evaluate damage is of course natural. However, there are certain things to consider and steps to be taken prior to starting propane gas service if your tank appears to have safely weathered the flood. These are strictly for the safety of you and your family, be sure that all propane related issues are handled by Federated Co-ops, your licensed propane company. Please call us. Additional safety precautions include:
- If you smell gas, leave the area immediately and contact Federated Co-ops or the fire department. If you can safely, shut off the propane service valve on the tank.
- Do not open your propane service valve. A propane leak test is required before the gas system can be placed back into service.
- Any appliance valves, controls, etc. that come in contact with water cannot be placed back into service. The same applies to propane gas regulators.
- If the tank has moved do not attempt to move it, please call us at once.
- Take as many pictures as possible inside and out documenting all damage to assets including the gas system and appliances. Document with pictures the water levels so there will be no questions when applying for pending government assistance.
Please let us know how we can be of assistance to ensure the safety of your gas system.
