Above ground and underground propane tanks



Above ground propane tanks

Pinnacle Propane’s above ground propane tank sizes range from 120 to 2,000 gallons of volume. Above ground storage tanks have the advantages of being less expensive, easier to install – all that’s needed is a concrete base - and maintain. Although they’re more exposed to natural hazards and you may feel the size of residential propane tanks detracts from the appearance of your backyard, many feel the advantages outweigh this, especially when tank screening options are available.



Underground propane tanks

For aesthetic reasons, many homeowners prefer to have their bulk propane storage tank buried underground out of sight. Our underground propane tank sizes vary from 120 to 2,000 gallons in volume.

Whatever underground propane tank size you choose, they’re fitted with our free auto-ordering technology (subject to site survey) that monitors your gas usage. They automatically schedule your propane delivery when you're running low so you don’t need to think about it. We’ll also take care of the tank installation from start to finish.

A telemetry unit will need to be installed by Pinnacle Propane to remotely measure the quantity of propane in the propane tank and schedule deliveries accordingly. Subject to the telemetry unit being able to receive signal. ACH transfer required.

Frequently asked questions

There are many different propane storage tank sizes for home and commercial use. As propane’s a liquid, it’s sold by liquid measure (gallon) or weight (pound). Pinnacle Propane’s residential propane tank sizes range from 150, 250, 500 and 1000 gallons. Commercial propane tank sizes are larger by request.
Most propane tanks are not stamped with their size. To measure height, set your propane tank on its bottom and measure from the bottom to the base of the tank's collar, the raised piece of metal surrounding the tank’s valve. Measure the diameter with a measuring tape at its widest point.
The propane tank size you’ll need depends on your home and how many appliances will run on propane. A 250-gallon tank for homes under 2,500 sq ft with 2-3 appliances. A 500-gallon tank can heat a whole house. Homes over 4,500 sq ft with many appliances, pool or hot tubs need a 1000-gallon tank.
