SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS

Propane (LP-Gas)is a flammable gas which can cause fires and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and colorless.Youmaynotknowallthefollowingsafetyprecautions which can protect both you and yourfamily from an accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point by point

with the members of your household. Someday when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone's safety will depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information, you feel you still need more information, please contact your gas supplier.

LP-GASWARNING ODOR

If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.That's your signal to go into immediate action!

Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.

Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do that IMMEDIATELY.

Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.

LP-Gasis heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters declare them to be safe.

Useyourneighbor'sphoneandcallatrainedLP-Gasserviceperson and the fire department. Even though you may not continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do notre-enterthe building, vehicle, trailer, or area.

Finally,lettheservicemanandfirefighterscheckforescaped gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly trainedLP-Gasservice people should repair the leak, then check and relight the gas appliance for you.

NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE

Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the odor of the chemical put into the gas.You must find out if you can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a gas odor can make it easier to smell.

The odorant in LP-gasis colorless, and it can fade undersome circumstances.For example, if there is an underground leak, the movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if

there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.

Theodorantinescapedgascanadsorborabsorbontoorintowalls, masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.

LP-Gasmay stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be more odor at lower levels.Always be sensitive to the slightest gas odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.

SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER

Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas.Your local LP-Gas Dealer can give you a "Scratch and Sniff" pamphlet. Use it to find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas Dealer.

If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gassystem.Ifyouarequalified,consciouslythinkabouttheodor ofLP-Gasprior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or making adjustments.

Sometimes a basement or a closed-uphouse has a musty smell that can cover up theLP-Gasodor. Do not try to light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area where the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor if there has been a leak ofLP-Gas.

Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which

have been out of service for a time may develop internal rust which will cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any question about the gas odor, call your LP-gas dealer.Aperiodic sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety measure under any condition.

If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gasodorant and you thinkyoushould,assumeyouhavealeak.Thentakethesame immediateactionrecommendedabovefortheoccasionwhen you do detect the odorizedLP-Gas.

If you experience a complete "gas out," (the container is under no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs, some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the container before it goes completely empty or having it refilled before it is completely empty.

Installing a New Main Gas Cock

Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.

A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate, contact your local authorized installer for installation or relocation.

Compoundsusedonthreadedjointsofgaspipingshallberesistant to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be checked for leaks by the installer.This should be done with a soap solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if unexposed, a pressure test should be made.

Neveruseanexposedflametocheckforleaks.Appliancemust be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!

NOTE: The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.

A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas line upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required by the National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near the gas inlet. This should consist of a vertical length of pipe tee connected into the gas line that is capped on the bottom in which condensation and foreign particles may collect.

When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings. Alwaysprovideaunionsothatgaslinecanbeeasilydisconnected for burner servicing.
