A spare tank is a second tank that is not directly connected to your propane grill or smoker. It is a tank that essentially stands at the ready for when your primary propane tank runs low or runs out. An exchange tank is a new, completely filled tank that we bring to you, and take the empty propane tank away.
Some homeowners and businesses choose to keep a spare tank alongside their primary propane tank. This way you can switch out to the replacement spare tank at a moment’s notice without any delay in waiting for our technicians to bring a fresh exchange tank to you.
