    Look Here For A Greener Lawn Care Business!

    Last updated 3 years ago

    One of the dirtiest polluters in the world of gasoline engines is the humble lawn mower. Even though these machines are small, their engines operate without any substantial emissions controls so they cause a lot of air pollution.

    Until you convert them to run on propane. A propane-powered lawn mower runs much cleaner so it's a more environmentally-friendly way to cut grass. A typical lawn mower for a golf course or lawn care company may run over 30 hours a week so that reduction in emissions adds up!

    The best part for lawn care professionals is the lower cost of propane vs. gasoline. Propane is typically at least a dollar cheaper per gallon and it operates in a closed system so there is very little risk of spillage.

    Cheaper. Cleaner. Safer. Talk to your lawn care equipment provider about converting your mower to run on propane or visit R&R Products to learn more about propane mower conversion systems.

    It's Primary Election Day - Don't Throw Your Vote Away!

    Last updated 3 years ago

    The beauty of buying a ticket for a raffle or lottery isn't the expectation of winning, it's the momentary opportunity to imagine winning. If you don't hold a ticket, you stand no chance to win. That's a fact. The odds of winning may be astronomical when you buy a ticket but without a ticket you can't enjoy wondering if you might win.

    The same stands true for our elections and voting. Whether you admire our civic leaders or hold them in contempt, they are the people who got elected when we had the chance to vote. If you want to hope for a better future, start the process by getting into a booth and exercising your constitutional right to vote.

    It's never been more convenient - you can vote by mail (not today) or at your local polling place. Bring your kids and get your "I Voted" sticker. Don't forget to thank the volunteers at your polling place. Go vote!

    The True Cost of Owning Your Residential Propane Tank - Read Carefully BEFORE You Purchase a Propane Container

    Last updated 3 years ago

    There are some questions that we answer every day. "What's the price of gas?" "When is my next delivery" "How does the SMART system work?"

    "What does it cost to buy a propane tank?" is one of those every day questions.

    The answer depends on the size and type of tank. What does not depend on the size and type is the consequence of buying a tank. Here are a couple of really important points to consider before you decide to buy your residential propane storage container.

    • Verify your propane tank warranty coverage - it matters. Check the fine print to be certain that the propane container you are purchasing is covered under the manufacturers warranty. Some propane tank warranties extend only to the original purchaser so if you buy a used tank or from a distributor, you may not be covered.
    • Call your homeowners insurance carrier before you buy. Some carriers may require an additional premium or documentation. Make that phone call BEFORE you write that check or you may find a hidden cost after it's too late.
    • You will still need professional installation. The installation of propane containers must follow strict guidelines for location and protection from extreme weather, flooding and earthquakes. Don't overlook the cost of shipping and professional installation.
    • Plan on preventative maintenance - your tank will require maintenance (to prevent corrosion) and you may need repair service if something malfunctions. Don't ignore the cost of keeping your tank in proper working order.
    • No matter who owns the tank, all codes still apply. Buying a tank is not a bypass around the applicable local, state and national code requirements related to tank installation, tank placement or tank maintenance.

    There are companies that sell new and used propane tanks with little regard for the long-term satisfaction of the buyer. Buying a propane container is a decision that requires some genuine investigation to determine if it makes sense.

    The majority of our customers choose the convenience of renting their residential propane tank as a part of their propane service. They get propane tank installation, propane delivery and all necessary propane tank maintenance as a comprehensive service.

    If you are considering a propane tank purchase, contact us at 888-526-7701 for information about installation, maintenance and repair services. We're happy to help you figure out which direction makes the most sense for you. Either way, we want you to be safe!

    Help Us Connect This Lost Dog With His Missing Owner! East Antioch / Oakley Area

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Please excuse the low quality picture but this sweet guy will not sit still for a photo.

    He showed up this afternoon at our Antioch office (3285 east 18th street) just as lost as lost can be. Our tenderhearted office staff took him to the vet who confirmed that he has no microchip ID.

    We need to connect him to his owners before the end of the day. Please share this post so people in our area will know that he's been found. We'll take him to the Antioch Animal Shelter at the end of the day if no one comes by to pick him up by 5pm.

    Microchip ID's for pets are not expensive and make reuniting lost pets with their families much easier. Contact your vet for more information on getting one for your dog or cat!
