Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a convenient and safe source of energy, increasingly used to power appliances around the home and garden.
The gas is butane or propane stored under pressure to keep it liquid. A small leak can produce a large amount of highly inflammable gas and if it ignites, the result is fierce fire or even explosion. To prevent accidents:
Check hoses regularly and replace hoses as soon as you spot cracks. Reveal leaks by applying soapy water to all connections - where there are bubbles, there are leaks.
If you smell the distinctive odour of LPG, turn off the gas and get the appliance checked.
Store spare cylinders outside but not below ground level.
Lock gas cylinders away from children.
