Grill Propane Safety – WMCTV Channel 5

Last updated 6 years ago

Propane is a safe, efficient fuel with many residential uses, including outdoor cooking on a grill. When using a propane tank for your grill, there are a few things you should know in order to ensure your safety.

In this video, you’ll learn the difference between a good tank and a bad tank.  For instance, round or flower-shaped valves are not safe. Rather, look for triangle-shaped valves etched with OPD, which stands for overfill protection device. These have a float inside that prevents the tank from being overfilled.  You also want to avoid tanks that are rusted or otherwise damaged and corroded.  Look for any evidence of dry rot on the fuel lines. For more information about choosing the right propane tank for your grill, check out this video.
