outlet clearance

Is there a code or requirment of how far away a propane tank must be from an exterior outlet.

No. But there are requirements with regard to the tank clearance from the house and property line. . .

Jeff, can you provide a good source for info on propane tank, supply, etc.? we’ve got a lot of propane out here on the island.

Unfortunately, I have nothing I can post. General requirements are covered in NFPA 58.

Building Code requirements give some info as well. Try IRC Chapter 24 and UPC Chapter 12. If your area of WA is in a seismic zone (D1 or D2), there are bracing requirements as well.


Thanks for the info. I could not find anything in the code books as well. I think the propane company thought the owner was talking about the electric meter.
