What if you smell gas?

• Immediately extinguish all flames and smoke material.

• Turn off main gas supply at the LPG cylinder.
• Open all windows and doors to ventilate the area.
• Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones or cell phones.
• Leave the area and contact a licensed LPG installer immediately to check installation

According to SANS, the regulations state where a cylinder can or can't be placed and how an installation may be completed.

• CYLINDER(s) can not be placed closer than 1m to a door.
• CYLINDER(s) can not be placed closer than 2m to an open drain or deppression, where the gas can gather if the cylinder leaks.
• CYLINDER(s) can not be placed closer than 5m to an electrical switch, motor, generator, pool pump etc.
• CYLINDER(s) can not be placed closer than 1m to the side of a window unless there is at least 300mm between the bottom of the window and the top of the cylinder and a non combustable roof has been placed between the window and the cylinder.
• CYLINDER(s) can not be placed closer than 1m to a boundary wall, unless the wall is a double brick "firewall" > 1.8m tall, with no ventilation gaps in the wall.
