When connecting a LPG cylinder – check all connection points for leaks by using a spray bottle of soapy water – if bubbles appear – there is a leak. Check connection fittings for damage or worn rubber seals.
Note connection fittings may have small rubber o-rings these need to be checked for damage, cracks etc and must be checked regularly. It’s good to remember to use the right tool for the right job as appropriate – check for obvious signs of damage to hoses and the appliance.
Keeping your gas cylinder safe
- Check all washers and o-rings on appliances and cylinders regularly.
- Never interfere with or remove the valve on any LPG cylinder.
- Do not turn the gas on until you are ready to light the appliance.
- Close the cylinder valve when appliances are not in use.
- Never use a flame to locate a leak.
- Always replace the dust cap on cylinders when not in use.
- Regulate the burner to your needs – flames should not go beyond the edge of the cooking vessel.
- Dispose of disposable canisters safely – do not incinerate them. Contact your local council for disposal details.
