How Can I Check for Leaks on my Propane Tank?

Checking for Propane Leaks

Checking for Leaks on your Propane Tank! 

Checking for propane tank leaks is easy if you have the right product. 

  • Most propane dealers or R/V stores sell a liquid product available in a spray bottle that will bubble when sprayed on any area of your propane cylinder or fittings that has a leak. 
  • Any leak will be visible by the appearance of bubbles.

You may have heard about mixing your own solution with liquid kitchen soap and water but BEWARE, your homemade solution may not react properly, either by not creating bubbles or it may be corrosive to your gas line and/or fittings.  

Even though propane tanks are corrosion resistant, steel propane cylinders are susceptible to rust and pitting.  That is why some customers choose to purchase aluminum propane tanks.
