We take care of the installation process and our Auto Ordering service delivers your bulk LPG supply according to your usage levels.

Our team of energy experts Flogas customer service team can help you answer any questions you might have about our LPG tanks. When one of our energy specialists visits your home, they’ll use our checklist to see if your garden is best suited to an underground tank, or whether an above ground LPG tank would be more suitable.

Installation requirements

Due to crane and lifting equipment restrictions the Flogas vessel can’t be sited directly underneath electrical power cables. 

Other services, such as electricity, drains or water can’t pass through the area where your tank will be buried. 

We have a minimum depth requirement for the LPG service pipe.

The LPG service pipe needs to be laid in a trench with a minimum depth of 600mm and minimum width of 300mm. All other services must be separated by 250mm from the LPG pipework. 

The backfill immediately around the tank should be pea gravel – 6mm to dust – in order to allow correct drainage. Where a site has a high-water table, additional precautions may be required to prevent water from accumulating in the tank turret.

Post installation requirements

Once your underground LPG tank has been installed, the land above the tank may be covered with turf or gravel.

The area immediately around the Flogas tank should be kept clear of debris and vegetation. Under no circumstances should vehicle parking be allowed on top of the tank. Continuous concrete or tarmac is not acceptable as a ground level finish, as this will impact on our ability to measure the readings from the cathodic protection system protecting the vessel. This may also affect your freedom to swap LPG suppliers in the future.

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.

The delivery hose cannot be taken through a building or enclosed passageway. Access to the property is required, and gateways and other entryways should be at least 3m wide to allow the tanker to pass.
