Calor Gas Underground Tank Corrosion

Hi all. I have been battling with Calor Gas over an underground LPG tank that has failed inspections due to cracks in the yellow coating. I have engineers on site today who reckoned that Calor have 4000 of these tanks that they have to resolve
First question is there anybody else out there trying to resolve this issue with Calor. If so I would like to hear from you.


  • I’ve just moved in to a house and tried to move suppliers. Been told i have the start of cracking so they won’t take on the liability. So I’ll have to work with Calor and pay their extraordinary gas prices. Any advice? Did you find out any more?

    I have the same problem with  Calorgas installed LPG tank by Bagom.   The yellow protective jacket has cracked and it needs replacing. The tank is 14 years old with an expected life expectancy of 30 years.  Current LPG supplier Avanti  want me to fund and organise all the replacement tank ground works. I believe Calorgas has some responsibilty for a faulty tank  but they say they sold the tank to Avanti .  Avanti say as they didnt install the tank its not their responsibility.    Interested to know how you got on with your problem and how many others have experienced the same issue.

    That isn't going to be cheap - Might pay to look at installing a heat pump and moving off gas altogether. With a £7500 Boiler Upgrade grant, and the relaxation on insulation requirements, it could be a good move.
