LPG cylinders are safe and convenient when stored and used properly. However, it’s still possible for gas leaks to happen, so it’s important to understand how to prevent them by storing them properly.

You should never tamper with your gas cylinder on your own. As soon as you notice any problems with your gas cylinder, please make sure to reach out to us right away.
Here are some safety measures to take note of when handling your LPG cylinder at home:
1. Ensure LPG cylinder storage area is properly ventilated
Be sure that the area where you store your gas cylinders, whether it’s a cage, store, or even a cellar, is cool, dry, and well-ventilated.
2. Gas cylinders should be stored upright
The following tips will help you safely handle your gas cylinder at home:
- Only purchase your LPG from authorised gas distributors
- Arrange for your gas supplier to perform a 5-point safety check on your LPG system at least once every year. This safety check includes the hose, regulator, hose clips, cylinder and joints/connections.
- Gas cylinders should always be kept upright and never horizontal.
- Gas cylinders should be kept away from open flames, heat sources and electrical outlets.
- When changing the gas cylinder, ensure no naked flame is present.
- A maximum of two cylinders can be stored in the home. Cylinders should be stored upright in a ventilated area.
- Regulators/hoses should be replaced by the expiry date or when damaged due to wear and tear.
