Hello Hannibal,

Personally, I would not turn in a tank that I knew was defective. You might take your old tank to a propane dealer and see if they could repair the old tank. To me, turning in a defective tank is the same as lying and cheating.


Not at all. The exchange companies specifically say that they will accept any tank, because they inspect and if necessary repair, or dispose of, every tank they get. It's part of their business model. Their customers know they are always getting a good tank, and they will always be able to exchange an empty, even if it fails while they are using it.


Agree.
I talked to our local propane dealer, and he said all returned tanks are inspected and repaired as needed. It is illegal to give out a tank with a known defect. He stated he would rather a defective tank be traded in than the homeowner try and get it refilled from a shady or careless supplier.

I bought 2 new tanks at Costco with the gauges.

I had 2 other tanks and one of them "developed" a dent so Costco wouldn't fill it.

So off to the local hardware store for a no questions exchange.

BTW...here in Ontario individuals MUST be licensed to operate a propane filling machine.
