The Six Customers Who Need A Tank Monitor
- Propane Pool Heater
- Propane Greenhouse Heater
- Propane Generator
- Second Home Owners
- Propane Refill Station
- Propane Restaurants
For the next in our series of difficult to track propane customers, we’re going to look at a propane refill station. In case you missed it our first four posts highlighted pool heaters, greenhouses, generators, and second-homes. Our top six list is a result of analyzing the thousands of connected tanks we monitor across 46 states and Canada.
A propane refill station displays variable, high, and critical consumption characteristics that make these tanks perfect candidates for a tank monitor. Let’s unpack each of these characteristics. First, these locations can swing wildly as demand varies from BBQ cylinders, RV tanks, forklifts, food trucks and more. Second, a run-out is directly tied to lost sales for your propane refill station customer, so one run-out can lead to a lost customer. This variable and critical use becomes even more risky because of a refill station’s large consumption rate. Customers like the one highlighted below can sell through a 1,000 gallon tank every week often requiring 50+ deliveries per year to avoid run outs.
