We then automatically deliver to you when we are in the area. This relieves you of the stress of keeping track and insures you always have an adequate supply of fuel during the winter months.

Apollo Propane stocks new and used residential and commercial propane  tanks on hand for sale or to loan to our customers.

TANK LOCATION

Proper tank location can be impacted by a number of factors.  Considerations include code requirements, property lines, location of buildings and structures, distance from driveway for refilling, contour of the property, water drainage and ease of set or pick up.  Our experienced staff can assist in determining the right location for you.

TANK SIZE

Proper tank size is also determined by a number of factors.  Considerations include size and insulation of house, type and number of propane appliances, wind exposure, family size and make-up and ease of delivery.  While Apollo is happy to provide tanks on loan to its’ regular customers, because of the skyrocketing costs of tanks, a minimum amount of annual consumption is required to avoid a rental charge.  In general, annual usage equal to twice the tanks’ capacity is required to avoid a rental charge.  While keeping the number of deliveries to your home each year to a minimum is important in keeping costs down, it is a prudent safety practice for our drivers to see your system at least twice during that same year.

UNDERGROUND TANKS

Underground propane tanks have become very popular in the last 20 years.  Apollo is your full turn-key, start to finish underground tank specialist.  We can perform the excavation work as well as complete all the exterior hook-ups and pressure testing. Underground tanks offer several advantages.  Their primary advantage is their aesthetic value, being hidden from view and often incorporated into a homes’ landscaping.  Underground tanks add value to a home and can cost less to maintain.  By owning your own underground tank you can realize significant cost savings on your propane over the years.  Propane is non-toxic and will not contaminate soil or groundwater.  Because it is non-toxic, propane has been exempted from the EPA’s stringent underground storage regulations.  Recently, many new housing developments nationwide now require their builders to go with underground propane storage tanks.  Give us a call or drop us a line today and we will be happy to provide you with a personalized quote to bury a tank.
