How to Install A Grill Tank

It’s barbecue season — make sure your grill tank is on right.

grill tank Charlestown, WV Is everything ready for your next cookout? While you’re marinating beef, seasoning a salmon steak or putting some fresh veggies on skewers, it’s a good idea to take a look at your grill tank and make sure you have enough propane for the barbecue.

At Roach Energy, we supply fuel for propane cylinder refill and exchange sites throughout the Eastern Panhandle region. Whether you’re in Charlestown, Shepherdstown, Martinsburg or another community in our service area, we have a convenient propane option near you to keep your grill sizzling.

But first, here are some tips for how to check your grill tank levels, switch out your tank, and confirm that your cylinder and grill are in safe working order.

Checking How Much Propane Is in Your Grill Tank

Many freestanding propane grills have a scale that will tell you approximately how much fuel you have. If yours doesn’t, there are three easy ways to check your propane cylinder’s fill level.

  1. Using a Home Scale. Look at the collar of your propane cylinder, and you should see a marking for TW (tare weight). This is the weight of the empty cylinder. You’ll also see a marking of WC (water capacity) or how many pounds of liquid propane your cylinder holds. Now, weigh the cylinder on a home scale, subtract the TW from the scale reading and divide the resulting number by the WC. That’s your grill tank’s percentage fill.
  2. The Hot Water Trick. Propane absorbs heat fast. You can pour hot water over your cylinder and run your hand down the metal. Your current fill line is where the metal turns cool.
  3. An Eternal Grill Tank Gauge. You can find these inexpensive devices at home stores, hardware stores and online retailers. They connect between your tank’s valve and your grill’s pressure regulator and tell you how full the grill tank is.

Changing Your Grill’s Propane Cylinder

Generally, a grill’s propane cylinder is stored in a compartment under the cooking space. Before disconnecting your current cylinder, confirm that the grill is turned off and the cylinder valve is closed. Then, twist the pressure regulator to unscrew it from the valve. If your grill has a restraining bolt, remove it. From there, you can take the cylinder out of the grill’s storage compartment.

Installing your new propane cylinder involves reversing this process. Place the full cylinder into the compartment, attach the restraining bolt (if applicable) and affix the pressure regulator.

Safety Tips for Your Grill Tanks

Here are some important safety tips for your grill tanks.

  • Before using a new propane cylinder in your grill, perform this simple leak test. Spray the cylinder valve, regulator and hose with a 50/50 mixture of dish soap and water. Open the tank valve. If you see bubbles, tighten all the fittings. Check again, and if you still see bubbles, there’s likely a leak. Immediately close the cylinder and contact your propane supplier.
