Our ‘Tankwise’ system offers you the best solution for ensuring you have enough gas. A sensor will be fitted to your tank that then sends us a reading every 24 hours of the level in your gas tank. You never have to worry about placing another order again.
If you prefer to manage your own ordering your easiest way of doing so is ordering online using our simple form, call 0800 169 1375 or email lpgas@countrywidelpg.co.uk.
Please be aware, when ordering yourself you must order no lower than 40% to allow time for the order to process through our system and get to you in time. Ordering lower than this can cause issues, especially in high demand times of the year where delivery times can be extended and usage increased.
If you are a manual order customer then you’re responsible for checking your tank’s level regularly to ensure you never go below 40% before placing an order. 1. Locate the cover on top of the tank, or the tank lid. 2. Open the cover/lid and locate the gauge – which may be protected with a cap. 3. The gauge shows a dial from 0% – 100% fill. 4. Please note you MUST place an order no lower than 40% to allow time for your order to arrive, but as long as an order is placed it is fine that your tank has lower. To allow for expansion in the enclosed gas we will never fill above 85%.
If you manually place your orders we advise that you order at 40% – any lower can risk you running low before your order has had time to be processed and delivered.
If you have one of our Tankwise sensors you don’t need to place your order.
Our Tankwise sensors automatically read what is in your tank and, based on your usage, we analyse our optimum date for your delivery.
If your sensor stops reading your fill level for any reason we will try to get in touch with you to manually monitor your gauge until the issue has been resolved.
If you notice your tank is low you can call us on 0800 169 1735 or email lpgas@countrywidelpg.co.uk to check an order has been raised.
There are occasions that deliveries are delayed by reasons outside of our control, or due to unforeseeable circumstances – such as weather conditions, road closures or vehicle breakdowns. When this is the case we use all of the information available to us to re-route your delivery as efficiently as possible. If you have any access problems – such as coded gates, or locked entrances please make us aware of this. In extreme circumstances there may be Health and Safety reasons for a driver being unable to make a delivery – in these cases an ‘Unsafe Delivery’ form would be completed and we will discuss this with you.
When making deliveries all of our drivers are trained to visually inspect the tank and will report anything to head office that may require attention. Our engineering team will pick up any maintenance issues that need to be addressed. We will get in touch with you about any issues that we need to make you aware of that need your attention – such as access problems or hedges or fences that are too near to the tank. Additionally all tanks are tested periodically. At 10 years they have an interim inspection and test and at 20 years a thorough examination, this normally requires the tank to be exchanged to avoid any disruption to your supply. Every tank has a data plate located on it, this shows when the tank was manufactured and the dates it was tested
