Propane is, for many reasons, one of the safest fuel sources available, and delivery and installation from Red Cap and Waterloo County Propane ensures unparalleled service and peace of mind for your family. Despite being a relatively safe source of fuel, abiding by safe propane practices remains vital–as with any energy source.
One property of propane which makes it a safer choice is the presence of Ethyl Mercaptan–an odorant which immediately alerts users to potential leaks via a rotten-egg smell. Should you detect this odor:
Propane cylinders possess several markings which display manufacturing dates and cylinder requalification dates. Understanding these markings is crucial, and the Core Fuels team is glad to assist customers with debunking cylinder markings.
Propane tanks are regulated by Transport Canada to ensure user safety, and the agency requires that tanks not be filled more than 80% to accommodate for changes in volume as temperature fluctuates. Transport Canada also ensures the safe storage of propane by requiring that each tank be equipped with a pressure relief valve which will automatically open or close should a tank be subject to abnormal conditions.

The best way to ensure that your propane solution is as safe as possible is by trusting the certified gas technicians at Red Cap and Waterloo County Propane with delivery and installation. Red Cap and Waterloo County Propane’s commitment to safety does not end at installation, and our experts are glad to further educate customers on propane care, safety, and operation.
