Get ready for grilling season with LG Jordan!

grill tank refills north carolina
Spring means grilling season is upon us here in North Carolina! It’s time to check your propane cylinders—not only to see how much propane they contain—but whether or not they are still certified.
Did you know? Propane cylinders are only certified for their first 12 years after manufacture. After that, they need to be recertified by a certified propane dealer who will make sure they meet today’s standards and are safe to fill and use.
Here’s how to check if your propane cylinder needs to be recertified:

  1. Look at the collar of your propane cylinder. There will be stamped markings on it. Some of those are for your tank’s origination, and capacity rating.
  2. Near the valve, there will be a date stamped there. That is the month it was manufactured. For example, if it reads “5-14,” it means your cylinder was manufactured in May of 2014.

Does your tank need to be recertified? You’re in luck! LG Jordan provides recertification for propane cylinders. Just bring your cylinder to our office and showroom, which is located at 314 North Hughes Street in Apex, NC. We’ll inspect it and, if it’s still safe to use, we’ll recertify it. Recertifications are good for a period of five years.
That not all we’ll do for you. We also provide safe, expert propane cylinder refills too!

Why Is A Refill Better Than A Tank Exchange?

Our propane cylinder refills are quick, convenient, and more cost-effective than tank exchanges.
We fill your cylinder with more propane than you would get from a cylinder you get from a tank exchange at a local mini-mart or gas station. You get a better bargain, and you won’t run out of propane as quickly.

Propane Cylinder Safety

With high safety standards from both government and the propane industry, propane has a strong safety record. However, you do need to know how to safely transport, store, and use propane cylinders.
Here are some safety tips:

  • Don’t leave your propane cylinder (empty or full) in your car for long periods, especially in hot weather.
  • If possible, come straight to our cylinder refill site and go straight home. If not, plan your outing so this is the last stop you make before going home.
  • Always keep your cylinder upright when you are transporting it, whether it’s empty or full. Propane can leak when the cylinder is on its side.
  • Store your propane cylinder outdoors and not in a garage, shed, carport, or covered porch.
  • NEVER smoke while handling or near a propane cylinder.
