Where in Philippines can I buy an LP tank leak detector safety cutoff in line with your regulator and hose attached to the tank (detects leaks) Is anyone using the much larger tanks for home use? It'd be nice to worry about refills for half a year or so.

My wife has always done this - after every use she turns off the supply.

I've had two internal gas tanks empty over night due to leaking hoses.  One hose was only installed three months previously.  It was a rented property and the gas bottle stuck under the sink.  I made

We built the in-laws a house about 12 years ago.  They wanted to cook outside with wood.  A few years later they ask the wife if we would set them up to cook with a couple burner cooktop in the kitche

Where can you buy  these in the PH?

 

You can buy leak detector/safety cut off gas valves on Lazada, similar ones were also available at the hardware store in CDO sometimes.

Shady, I edited your question and made it into a new topic because it's a good question but would have been lost in that three year topic about another subject. Hope you understand. Going forward it would be helpful to start new topics so others can better answer or learn. :tiphat:

Geoff, did you get this item and if so how is it working out for ya? We may buy one for our family too. Thanks :cheersty:

Check with family first.  The one shown is threaded.  My tank would not be able to accept this type.  Mine, you press down, twist 90 degrees and it locks in place.

Thanks, my other question was this: Does anyone use the larger 50kg tanks for in their residence?

That won't fit Gasul tanks.

We use smaller gass bottles and we have leak detector valves on both of them, they aren't exactly that model because we bought them a couple of years ago.

One time they led to replacing the hose on the small cooker in the dirty kitchen which was leaking (and yes it worked and stopped gas flow).

It's common to put the gas bottles into cupboards under cookers in the Philippines and leaking gas could build up which made me uncomfortable which is why we bought a couple of the 'gas valves', they aren't expensive.

Our's is safely stored outside. I thought this was one of the requirements of getting a permit. :89:

We bought our house already built, the dirty kitchen both has a double cupboarg with a place for gas bottles to run the gas cookers (11kg I think?).

No idea about permits (since we didn't build it) but I wasn't comfortable with bottled gas in an enclosed space without some sort of leak safety valve.
