Suburban Propane provides a storage tank for our customers’ use. We maintain ownership and responsibility for the tank(s) at our customer’s property. As owner of the tank(s), we are responsible for any needed maintenance and compliance with all applicable safety regulations. If the tank ever needs repair or replacement, we do that with no additional charge to the customer. The rental fee helps defray our costs associated with tank acquisition, maintenance and insurance — including a testing process that must be performed periodically to ensure that the tank is within original manufacturer’s specifications.
