Gas storage unit advice please

How can you safely facilitate and maintain a gas storage unit on your property? Whether it be beneath or above the ground, what can I do to ensure safety and what steps can be taken to prevent a gas leak or explosion?

"The installation team will tell you where it will be legally allowed to be placed and also install and test all pipework underground, any work carried out after the valve installed by the gas supply company should test any pipework they have installed."

"If you mean a LPG tank underground or surface.

These tanks are installed by professionals and are fitted with regulators, under pressure sensors, over pressure sensors, safety relief valves and other safety devices.
They have been used for many years without major incident.

Hope this helps"

"LPG storage tanks should be checked annually the same as a boiler and serviced as per the manufacturers instructions.
Without maintenance you may not know you have a problem until its to late ,these storage systems are very safe and have a number of safety devices but a small leak on the system could cost £££££. Keeping your servicing up to date is the best way to maintain safety and reliability."
