Underground Gas Tanks
The LPG Tank can sit in a pit underground, a trench for the Gas pipe from the tank to the point of entry to the property will need to be excavated by the customer. Countrywide will install the LPG tank and Gas pipe and then the customer will be responsible to backfill the tank with sharp sand and make good the trench afterwards.
When planning to site an underground LPG tank the following considerations should be made:
- Consideration for accessibility of machinery, required to carry out the excavation work and access for the crane vehicle to deliver the tank.
- Tanks should not be sited in areas prone to flooding or with very high water tables.
- Tanks have to be sited in accordance to the UKLPG codes of practice
Our technical staff will be happy to discuss your requirements, we recommend that you discuss with our technical staff before undertaking any site work prior to installation.
