Using Liquigas Cylinders Safely


  • Take care of the cylinder and the valve to ensure that they are not damaged.
  • Always use cylinders in the upright position.
  • Return cylinders when empty or when not in use for long periods.
  • Read the instructions provided with your appliance and keep them handy for future reference.
  • Keep your appliance clean and have it serviced regularly by a competent person.
  • Ensure there is an adequate supply of fresh air where your appliance is used. If a room becomes stuffy, open a window or door immediately.
  • Preferably replace empty cylinders for full ones outdoors. In case of a change indoors take extra care and precaution. The appliance must also be switched off and preferably allowed to cool.
  • Check that the regulator is connected properly and that there is no gas leakage.


  • Don’t expose the cylinder to direct heat from flame as this may result in excessive pressure.
  • Don’t attempt to unscrew or disconnect a clip-on from any cylinder if the flame does not go out when the regulator is turned off.
  • Don’t store or use cylinders in cellars, below ground level or closer than 2 metres from entrapped drains, unsealed gullies or openings to cellars. LPG is heavier than air and if there is a leak gas will accumulate at a low level and may become dangerous in presence of a flame or spark.
  • Don’t attempt to force a regulator of one size on to a cylinder’s valve of another size. In case of difficulty, contact your retailer and have the appliance checked.
  • Don’t modify your gas appliance. Always ask your gas retailer for advice and do not let unqualified people tamper with or service your appliance.
  • Don’t obstruct access to cylinders.
