Residential Tank Location Guidelines

Where is the safest and best place for my new Alliance Propane tank?

The following is helpful information when building your home.


Most common tank sizes in use today are: the 250, 325, and 500. These must be at least ten feet from both the house and property line and any ignition source.

  • For proper delivery service, your tank should not sit more than 90 feet from your driveway or street curb. Maximum hose length on all trucks is 100 feet.
  • Gas lines must be buried in a trench minimum 18” deep (12” if under concrete).
  • Length of trench does not matter as long as you comply with the above requirements.
