LP Tank Lines Inspect

Just a friendly reminder to physically view and feel your LP Tank connection lines. Even though they are semi sheltered inside the tank cabinets they are still prone to becoming brittle and cracking. Especially if they have tight bends in them. If they are cracking replace them ASAP for they are junk and will fail. The pictured hose is 3 years old... potentially this hose could have been sitting on factory shelf for a long period of time before it was used ?? It became very brittle in a very short period of time. I had to settle for a cheap hardware store replacement for now but there are heavier duty braided replacement lines available.

I had a line like that last month and replaced it . Oddly the other side was fine. They date from Aug of 2016.

Replaced mine in the first year. One side was fine, the other worse than your picture. I found braided lines on Amazon and replaced them.
