Propane is flammable and hazardous if handled improperly.
Please read and understand the cylinder warning label before using PRO2GO Cylinder
Be familiar with Propane’s Odour
When produced, propane is both colourless and odourless.
An odourant called Ethyl Mercaptan is added so, in the event of a leak, you can detect the escaping gas by its strong, distinct smell (like rotten eggs, a skunk, or boiling cabbage).
Exchange Propane Cylinder Transportation
Transport cylinder in an upright and secure position.
No smoking is allowed in the vehicle in which the cylinder is being transported.
The maximum number of cylinders that can be transported is five (5).
Remove the cylinder from the vehicle as soon as possible after transporting and place securely in a well-ventilated area in an upright position.
Propane Cylinder Storage and Use
Store cylinder outdoors in shaded area.
Store cylinder away from flame and heat.
Use only on appliances and BBQ’s approved for propane.
Check cylinder and line connections periodically to be sure that they are tight.
Check for leaks using detergent or soapy water – never use a match or flame.
Know the odour of Liquid Propane Gas (LP-Gas). If you hear, see or smell leaking LP-Gas, immediately get everyone away from the cylinder and call the Fire Department. Do not attempt repairs.
LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low places while dissipating.
