Mass. Fire Marshall office requires that a hydro at MAWP be performed on a second hand propane storage tank. We are of the opinion that this is not necessary and that we can check for leaks at welded joints when the tank is filled with propane and when the pressure is near MAWP. Our external inspection and ultrasonic test of shell and heads revealed the tank to be in good condition. Comments are appreciated.
