Above ground LPG gas tanks

Get your home flo-ing right with an easy above ground tank installation

Above ground LPG gas tanks are the right fit for many of our customers. A concrete base is all that’s required for us to deliver the vessel and – the LPG supply can be connected right away.

You can keep your LPG supply at the right level with ease by using our Auto Ordering Service. This is an effective way for us to deliver LPG whenever you need it.

We can visit your home to look at how an above ground tank would work for you, or if your home could benefit from an underground LPG gas tank.

Installation requirements

Your domestic LPG gas tanks must be three metres away from buildings, boundaries, and fixed sources of ignition.

 If your property does not allow these distances to be met, one side of the above-ground LPG gas tank can have a reduced separation distance of 1.5 metres with the use of a suitably designed ‘fire wall’. If you do need a fire wall, we advise that this should be precisely specified by one of our energy specialists. The other three sides surrounding the tank must have a three metre clearance. 

As LPG vapour is heavier than air, the vessel should not be positioned within three metres of unsealed drains or gullies. 

There must be a 1.5 metre distance (in plan view) from low voltage overhead power cables and 10m from high voltage cables. 

Post installation requirements

Once the LPG vessel is installed, the area surrounding it needs to be kept free of obstacles.

This means rubbish, litter, overgrown vegetation, trees, sheds and fences shouldn’t be within three metres of the tank. You can shield the tank from view by using screening, although these must be a minimum of one metre from the tank and shouldn’t stop the area around the tank from being properly ventilated. 

Full details of how to keep your bulk tank installation safe can be found here.


To safely deliver your LPG, the driver must be able to reach the tank and maintain a line of sight to the tanker.
