Portable LP gas storage cylinders generally have a maximum capacity of 100 gallons of water. Even though the maximum capacity is measured in gallons of water, cylinders are usually referred to by their LP gas weight: 20 pounds, 100 pounds, etc.).

Let Us Set You Up with a Propane Tank for Your Home

Constructed to last for decades, our propane storage tanks are made of heavy-gauge steel with a special coating to prevent corrosion.

We have a range of sizes to suit your home’s needs—from smaller tanks to provide fuel for multiple appliances to larger tanks with the capacity to heat a large home as well as run appliances and even heat a pool or spa. Our propane tank experts will assess your needs and help you choose the tank size that’s right for you.

They will also discuss safety matters. For instance, LP gas is stored in containers as a liquid but then expands to a gaseous state when released from the container. That’s why we never fill a propane tank beyond 80% of its capacity.

Understanding Tank Sizes

Stationary tanks, either aboveground or underground, have various water gallon (WG) capacities that exceed 100 gallons.

Here are the dimensions of the various types of tanks Parker Gas can install for your home or business.

Aboveground/Underground/Tanks from Parker Gas

There are also aboveground/underground “combination” tanks, which are designed for propane storage in residential or small commercial applications. These models, which offer a range of sizes and capacities, can be installed either aboveground or as a shallow underground storage solution.

Tank Sizes Vertical / Horizontal Overall Length Overall Height Diameter
120  Horizontal  68 inches 36 inches 24 inches
250   Horizontal   94 inches  44 inches 30 inches

Note: These are approximate dimensions. Size could vary slightly depending on manufacturer. When burying these tanks, hole sizes should be approximately 24 inches longer and wider than tank to allow room for tank to be installed and proper anodes connected. Depth should allow for approximately 12 inches of dome to stay above ground level.
