Ted Johnson Propane is a licensed DOT propane tank recertifying agent. We perform a full tank inspection which is included in the tank recertifying process.
Here is a description of what we do for you:
- Check the tank date of manufacture
- Check the tank for leaks
- Check to make sure the tank has the required decals
- Check the valve guard
- Check the foot-ring
- Check for dents & gouges
- Check for rust
- Replace the relief valve – This valve is set to release any excess pressure in the propane tank. The valve is equipped with a protective cap to keep the valve clean from water and debris. The relief valve must be replaced within 12 years of the date of manufacture of the container and every 10 years thereafter. See NFPA 58 Sec 2-3.2.5.
At the end of the process tanks will be stamped as recertified.
Cost to recertify is $35 + valve. The price of the valves vary, estimated total cost is $55 & up.
